2020 marks the return of the chic pajama. Gone are the days of old mismatched t-shirts and sweats. Think Blair and Serena from Gossip Girl or Alexis Rose of Schitt's Creek glamorously lounging around their homes. Wearing chic pajamas will make you feel stylish before you've even brushed your hair - yes, it's possible!
Pajamas are one of the smartest fashion purchases you can make. Unlike that party dress or those insane heels, you'll actually get a ton of wear out of them. And the prettier they are, the longer you'll want to wear them. Your lazy days just got a whole lot nicer!
What defines a pair of chic pajamas?
It will exude an air of luxury, like satin, linen, or structured cotton.
These pajamas could never be baggy or unflattering. This doesn't mean they should be tight, though. After all, pajamas are still meant to be comfortable. They should be fitted but with just the right amount of looseness.
You won't find anything bright or garish in chic pajama-land. Stick to timeless neutrals like black, white, navy, or subtle pastels if you want a bit of color. Some prints are fine, like elegant pinstripes or feminine florals. Leave the cartoon animals to the kids.
Chic pajamas should be so stylish that you can wear them out in broad daylight. In fact, some fashionistas do! They will often have smart details like collars, piping, buttons, lace trims, and pockets. Stars like Gigi Hadid have been spotted wearing their chic pajamas outside, dressed up with heels and a blazer.
What kinds of chic pajamas are there? You have a few options. There's the button-up shirt option, the satin cami, or the night slip for a more sexy option. All of the set options can be worn with pants or shorts. If you're going for the satin cami or slip, why not get a kimono to complete the look? And a pair of fluffy slippers will always be a great (and cozy) accessory!
It's natural to want to be cozy and comfortable at home, and especially while you sleep. But you don't need to sacrifice style to do it. Chic pajamas are all the proof you need!
