Pajama Trend

The Gucci Spring/Summer 2016 collection has me convinced that the pajama trend is worth revisiting. I feel re-inspired to wear vintage men’s pajamas for holiday parties and/or New Year’s Eve.

>> First step: Search Etsy for vintage pajamas.

The set below is maybe my favorite pair so far. It has a great noisy pattern in nice dark tones. If you plan to wear pajamas to a party I think it is best to stick with darker tones. Lighter tones, like pale blue, may make you look like you wandered out of a hospital ward.

I love this next pair too. The stripes remind me of British fashion, like something Vivienne Westwood would design, and the pockets are perfection.

If you have trouble finding a pair of vintage men’s pajamas that you love, do a search for vintage robes instead. They are much easier to find. Wear a robe over slacks or as a wrap dress with heels.

Elevate the look with sculpted hair, classic make-up, and statement jewelry. Right now I’m inspired by Zosia Mamet’s look in this Kate Spade short video.

>> Final Step: Recognize that fashion can be fun and have a blast!
