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…
There’s no doubt: the onesie pajama had a moment in 2013. Traditionally onesies have been considered sleepwear for children only, but these one-piece PJs became hip for adults this year.
Even I got swept up in onesie fever. I broke down and bought this stripped, footless one-piece from Target and it made me a believer. The whole peeing in the middle of the night thing is definitely a pain in the ass, but I’m willing to overlook that because, somehow, my onesie helps me sleep better. Seriously, they are magical.
Let’s take a look back at the onesie’s miraculous journey from reviled Christmas gift to must-have wardrobe staple.
Are you wearing your sleepwear right now? That says you’re probably fun-employed. Or freelancing. Or working from home. Or ill! You could also be ill. I am sorry if you are ill. Oh, also, you could be Hugh Hefner! That is a job. However, even if you’re the kind of person who only wears sleepwear during sleeping hours, what you choose still says a lot about you. I’ve thought this over and reached some conclusions. Read more on The Gloss…
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 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]
We sometimes think that the sexiest thing you can wear to bed isn’t the see-through nightie or the fancy lingerie, but rather the laid-back, basic stuff. Like these Only Hearts boxer shorts. They’re natural, comfy, and would, without a doubt, make us feel sexy. Who’s with us?
