Although pajamas may be most commonly associated with laissez-faire Saturday afternoon style, this low key outfit has officially become a fashion trend. On the Fall/Winter 2016 runways, pajama dressing has ruled, with models marching down the catwalks in sumptuous, soft fabrics. With Christmas in the air, trendsetters will be swapping their pantsuits and fitted dresses for looser fits and cozy ensembles. With down-to-earth vibes in the air, look no further than the hottest catwalks as you slip into 2016’s revamped pajama trend this season.
Take your cues from the Etro runway, where a boxy brocade jacket made an appearance in a rich burgundy hue. The look of colourful metallic embroidery helps to put a stylish spin on the jacket, while flowing printed trousers in a matching hue complete the outfit. Add burgundy velvet pumps and a dark brown leather shoulder bag, and get ready to tackle your day off in style.
For a day of business, replace your tweed and wool with luxurious velvet (as seen at Alberta Ferretti). A coral-coloured velvet pajama jacket makes a bold first impression with its belted waist, while coordinating trouser bottoms will leave you feeling like you’re in your PJs at home.
As day changes into night, slip into a flowing black sheer robe, like the hero example spotted at Vera Wang. Lightweight textures and dainty floral patterns keep the style looking current, while a form-fitting black sheer top, high-waisted trousers and pleather platforms seal the deal. If you plan to walk into your next party like a beautiful ethereal spirit, an inspired outfit just might set the tone for the evening.
