How to wear pajama pants

After Stella McCartney and Diane von Furstenberg showed loose fitting, printed pajama-style pants on their respective runways for Spring 2012, the trend cemented itself for seasons to come. Since, everyone from Tommy Hilfiger to Dries Van Noten have shown the look. on the streets, J Crew creative director Jenna Lyons and Rihanna have both made wearing the trend look effortless. But while pajama dressing sure is trendy, it may not surprise you to hear that its not as simple as leaving the house in the same outfit you slept in.

Style, fit and fabric are all things that we need to consider when deciding how to wear pajama pants. You want the look to be flattering and streamlined, which can often be the antithesis of the way pajama pants are made. Same goes for loose fitting pajama blouses.

This week we challenged our Style Panel to show off how to wear pajama pants and share their tips. Curvy Geekery’s Mo Handahu swore that she would never try this trend, but looks amazing in her matching blouse and pants that fit her perfectly. This trend is all about fit! Inherited Jeans’ Stephanie Koch went casual with her styling and added a leather jacket, smoking slippers and a lace t-shirt to her silk track pants.

    Murder this trend at birth. Pajama pants flatter nobody! What it says about the person wearing them in public is I AM A SLOB! Let`s face it – the majority of pyjamas we see on the street are pre slept-in! Honestly, the impression you emit is not favourable.

    This is the worst trend ever. You look like a slob that doesn’t care. It shows no pride in your appearance.

    Is foolish there is nothing like seeing someone walking towards you on the street wearing bright red fannel with polar bears, it gives the impression they forgot to get dress or they do not own any clothes!!

    ok, I love me some pajama pant/sweat pant. But I’m a stay at home mom and it’s easy to wear this stuff to play with the kids. And spilling on them is no big drama because stains are pretty easy to hide with pajama pants. I’m all for trying to make the pajama pant look more presentable in public but to try to high fashion them? LOL! Most of the pictures here are horrendous (a few outfits are great – but again only in making the pants presentable in public). I cling to my pajama/sleep/”active” wear pants like life but I still don’t want to look like I just rolled out of bed.

    I think the other people in the comments are narrow minded and not open to change… I like this idea and I always like to see cool new ways people make outfits. Some of these look a hot mess, but some of them look amazing and very stylish.

    It’s not like they’re wearing beat up, full of holes, wrinkly, full of lint – pajama pants. They’re wearing cleaner, less bulky pants that look great with their trend. I am lost at how these people look sloppy when they’re obviously well groomed and have some fashion sense…. I guess people are just fearful of things they don’t understand?

    Short Answer: Pretty cool idea! Number 11 is awesome
