Trend Alert 2013-14: Rock Those PJs All Day!

 Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to wear your PJs to work, an event, dinner, or the movies? Well, now you can find out without people thinking you are having a Hugh Hefner moment! The trend is called "pajama dressing". "Pajama dressing" is one of those high fashion trends that has been around for a very, very long time and is continuing to gain in popularity thanks to designers like Marc Jacobs, Gucci, the late Alexander McQueen, and more who have shown pajamas on the runway as daywear in many of their collections. Even new labels, like Piamita, have been launched to meet the growing demand for pajama dressing. The reason, I'm sure, is very obvious! Total comfort! After all, who in their right mind doesn't feel totally relaxed in their pajamas? And, that's not all! Pajamas also get a big thumbs up because of their style versatility and the fact that they look really good on so many different body types. So if you like this look and want to get in on this hot trend, without looking like you just rolled out of bed, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First of all, make sure you splurge a little and shop for pajamas made out of high quality materials. Your PJs should also have a tailored fit, structure, great details, and most inportantly, feel amazing! Don't forget that you don't have to wear your pajamas as sets. Mix and match them with other pajama pieces and/or wear your pajama tops and bottoms separately with other pieces of your wardrobe. Here are a few images of "pajama dressing" as seen on the catwalk and on the streets. Check them out and maybe you'll get inspired to rock your PJs all day!
