Pajamas in Public Can Be Chic

By Makenzie LynchThe Pajama Company Summer Intern

As of recently, wearing pajamas in public has become not only acceptable, but trendy and fashion forward (if worn correctly, of course.) This season, style icons — from top fashion bloggers, to designers, to celebrities — have opted to take a comfier approach to fashion and wear their pjs in public. This is one fashion trend we can’t get enough of here at The Pajama Company. However, not everyone agrees with us.


 

As we discussed earlier this year, a few officials have tried to ban people from strutting around in their pajamas. Louisiana commissioner Michael William attempted to prevent residents in his district from appearing in public places wearing “garments sold in the sleepwear section of department stores.” A school in Vermont banned students from wearing pajamas to classes. A school in the U.K went so far as to forbid parents from wearing pajamas when picking up/dropping off their children.

Most of the reasoning behind these campaigns comes from the idea that pajamas are unprofessional and unkempt. However, this season we have seen that pajamas can be anything but sloppy. Model Miranda Kerr paired her blue ikat print pajamas with an oversized blazer, nude pumps and big sunglasses for an anything-but-messy airport look (shown above), while Rihanna went for a sleek oriental inspired look on the red carpet.  But one of our all-time favorite looks has to be Rachel Roy’s classic red carpet look in our Bed-Head blue and white stripe pajamas (shown below.)

We would be devastated if these bans kept our style icons, and most importantly the members of our Pajama Company community from trying out these ultra-chic pajama looks. So, in order to keep the pajama critics from talking, we have a few tips for putting your look together:

1.) Make sure your pajamas are crisp, clean, and wrinkle free.

2.) Keep hair and makeup simple and neat. (See Miranda’s sleek ponytail.)

3.) Accessorize! Add a structured blazer, great pair of shoes, a pretty necklace, or big glasses.

5.) Own it! Confidence always makes an outfit, so be proud of your original look and you will get the attention you deserve.

Five-Year-Old Suri Cruise Wears Pajamas To Dinner (So What??)

The twittersphere was all worked up last week over the news that Katie Homes brought her daughter Suri to dinner wearing pajamasAccording to dad, Tom Cruise, the 5-year-old Suri has her own sense of style and chooses her own outfits.

So did the celebrity kid, who was out to dinner with her mom and grandmother, decide to make a style statement following the leads of fashion icons Rachel Roy and Selma Hayek who were recently seen dressing up their pajamas? Doubtful. (Uh, she’s five. Remember?)

Our guess is Suri chose pajamas for the same reason many of us adults do; they’re comfy, cute and unique.

To turn her pajamas into an outfit, Suri paired heart print capri pant and top with a purple jacket and silver flats.

Some moms are still upset about Suri’s style choice or her mother’s allowing her daughter’s fashion freedom. A writer on babycenter.com points out that mom, Katie Holmes, had an opportunity to bring Suri a change of clothes after their afternoon activity.

But is it really that big of a deal for a 5-year-old to go out in pajamas? What do you think?
