Hopefully you’ve graduated from your well worn college t-shirts, beat up boxers and sweats, right? If not, no worries, there’s no pajama shame here.
But, be honest: is it time to upgrade your PJs? One of the benefits if adulting is that you get to treat yourself to cozy, comfy PJs that you love! We’re talking a proper pair of pajamas – the kind with matching tops and bottoms (or a onesie if you’re so inclined – more on that in a bit).
The bottom line is this: if you don’t have a real pair of pajamas as an adult, you’re totally missing out. Because being a grown up in jammies is kind of like a little slice of heaven.
Here are some of the grown up rules of pajamas, that we feel we must share:
Cozy is the name of the game. No weird flame-resistant fabric like when you were a kid. Adult PJs are all about cool cottons, soft jersey, snuggly flannel and cozy fleece. This is your relaxation uniform – your signal that the work day is done and it’s time to chill. This is the outfit that at times, you’ll wear all day long (see Pajama Days), so the key here is cozy.
Fancy or Fun, it’s your choice. People call you fancy pants? We know your type and we’ve got your number – you’re the classic PJ type. Or maybe you’re more of the light-hearted breed who loves fun patterns that show off your favorite hobby or your goofy sense of humor. We’ve got you covered as well, with a million options like here and here and here.
PJs say: “I like you”. Pajamas in a sense, are a form of self care. Buying yourself a great pair of PJs is like sending yourself a cozy love note. Think about it: you’ll feel good wearing them, and much more put together when you’re lounging all day. And, you’ll sleep better when you’re snug as a bug in your jammies. #pajamalove
Footies are still perfectly acceptable. Yes, you probably remember wearing them as a kid. And here’s the good news: footed pajamas come in a full range of adult sizes too! And, we think they’re best suited for an all-day Netflix binge watch, don’t you?
Pajamas + (insert favorite food & drink here) = the perfect match. Love comfort food like grilled cheese or a giant plate of nachos? Indeed, a match made in heaven. Syrup-covered waffle and bacon breakfast? Spot on. Pizza delivery? Surely. Wine, margarita, or maybe a hot toddy? Mmmm yes…the perfect compliment to your snazzy, soft PJs.
So there you have it, adult friends – get yourself a proper pair of pajamas and get your cozy on. And then consider it your license to laze!
