Yet another sign that I am getting old: I get really, really excited when I have a new set of pajamas. Sure, in summer, I just go to bed in a tank and undies, but during winter? Matching flannel PJs all the way, baby. Maybe I am putting too much emphasis on sleepwear, but putting on a set of matching PJs makes me feel like I’ve really got my shit together. Because, I mean, look at me, I am wearing an outfit to bed. So retire those sweats and ratty Ts and sleep in style in one of these comfy and cozy pajama sets…
First, there was J. Biebs‘ bodyguard, spotted the other day in a full-body pajama onesie. Now, today, here is Bieber himself, decked out in bright red footie pa-jay-jays. This is apparently his pre-concert outfit, the one he wears for his pre-concert ritual that we refer to as “Embarrassingly Strutting Around Stockholm, Sweden, With Your Buddy Pretending To Dance To Music That Isn’t There.” In any case, is this a trend we’re going to be seeing a lot more of? Are footie pajamas suddenly going to be “up in the clurb“-appropriate? Let’s hope so. I’m dusting off my Pajama Jeans right now. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Today is “Wear Your Pajamas To Work” Day! Are you wearing your pajamas yet? Our office is under construction, so a few of us Frisky staffers are working from home this week, so it’s a good bet that some of us are sitting around in our sweatpants right now. With that in mind, I’ve found 12 cute pajama sets to amp up your PJ game!
Do you wear your pajamas out in public? We’re asking because if you live in Caddo Parish, Louisiana, and you want to run out to the mall in your jammies, you might soon be breaking the law. That’s because local politician Michael Williams is proposing an ordinance that would prohibit the wearing a pajamas in public places. “If you can’t [wear pajamas] at the boardwalk or courthouse, why are you going to do it in a restaurant or in public? Today it’s pajamas,” Williams told the Shreveport Times. “Tomorrow it’s underwear. Where does it stop?” Keep reading »
Whatever happened to people heading to bed with style? One of our New Year’s resolutions for 2012 is to forgo the stained sweats and hole-y T-shirts in favor of a PJ set that actually matches. The kind of look we wouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen in by a hot firefighter in the event of a building evacuation. You know? [$78, J. Crew]
I’ve never worn a nightgown in my life. The word alone makes me cringe, and the suggestion that I invest in one even more so. I’ve always been under the impression that nightgowns are firmly in the “not sexy”camp. My mother wears nightgowns! What’s sexy about that? (Sorry, Mom.) But a T-shirt and boxers are not that sexy, either, and it might be nice to have something cute to wear to bed when my boyfriend sleeps over. I’m looking to trade in my old decaying sweatpants (“lounge pants,” they prefer to be called) for something a little more romantic that will still keep me sleepin’ comfy.
I’ve finally had enough of sleeping in my old yoga pants, which I got when I tried to make yoga my “thing” (surprise, it’s not my thing). That’s why I’m upgrading my sleeping situation of late with a pair of lovely cotton jammies from the fine folks at BedHead. Not only are these pajamas beautifully made, they’re pretty enough that you’ll want to wear them out of the house. But don’t! That would be weird. [$136, BedHead PJs]
I’m sorry, trendy girls, for what I am about to say. But your pajamas-as-daywear thing? It’s a stupid look. A very, very comfortable look, to be sure. (I am a professional blogger and I know of what I speak!) But me and everyone else who sees you wearing pajama bottoms and a top out to dinner at Chez Frommage thinks, Why didn’t she get dressed?

Behold the Tee PJ, an extra-long T-shirt-style pajama outfit for men and women. Now, we don’t actually find the lady version to be all that offensive … it’s more the guy’s Tee PJ that really puts us off. A full-length nightgown doesn’t exactly stir the fire in our loins, if you know what we’re talking about. Is it just us, or are these pajama designs kind of weird? [Wittmann Textiles] Keep reading »
