Stepping out for an afternoon shopping trip in Manhattan’s West Village in plaid pj pants, Mary-Kate Olsen became the latest fashion trendsetter to demonstrate how pajamas can be incorporated into a stylish outfit.
First Rachel Roy shocked fashion critics by wearing pajamas on the red carpet. Next Salma Hayek was spotted wearing her pajamas with heels and a cardigan at the LAX airport. Then Rihanna wore pajamas straight from the runway to her new movie premier.
Fashion trendsetters are making it clear, it’s ok, even encouraged, to wear your pajamas out of the house. But pulling off the pajama outfit requires creativity. Now we want you to show us how you get creative with your pajama outfits.
To enter the contest, you must submit a picture of yourself in your best pajama street fashion outfit. We want to see how you have adapted the trend to your own street style. The picture must show you wearing pajamas as part of your street outfit outside of the house.
Of course, these weren’t just any pajamas that she pulled from her closet. The singer wore blue and gold metallic pajamas from Emilio Pucci’s Autumn Winter 2012 collection. To transform the pajamas from sleepwear to evening wear, Rihanna paired them with nude heels and long elegant earrings to complete the outfit.
The twittersphere was all worked up last week over the news that Katie Homes brought her daughter Suri to dinner wearing pajamas. According to dad, Tom Cruise, the 5-year-old Suri has her own sense of style and chooses her own outfits.
So did the celebrity kid, who was out to dinner with her mom and grandmother, decide to make a style statement following the leads of fashion icons Rachel Roy and Selma Hayek who were recently seen dressing up their pajamas? Doubtful. (Uh, she’s five. Remember??)
Our guess is Suri chose pajamas for the same reason many of us adults do, they’re comfy, cute and unique.
To turn her pajamas into an outfit, Suri paired heart print capri pant and top with a purple jacket and silver flats.
Some moms are still upset about Suri’s style choice. A writer on babycenter.com points out that mom, Katie Holmes, had an opportunity to bring Suri a change of clothes after their afternoon activity.
But is it really that big of a deal for a 5-year-old to go out in pajamas? What do you think?
