Dreaming of Pinstripes
You've probably noticed sleepwear as streetwear this season. We even highlighted it as one of our favorite trends this season here! From silk lace dresses to PJ piping on hemlines, to this nightie-inspired dress, sleepwear is hitting the streets in a big way. Pinstripes and off-the-shoulder styles are also huge trends this fall, so I had to snag this dress that ticked all the trend boxes and, more importantly, looked super comfy and casual.
The trick to styling PJ-inspired outfits out of the house all comes down to the accessories. Pair with oxford shoes, tall strappy stilettos, or chunky platforms, like the sandals here, to help dress up the look and elevate it. Definitely don't forgo jewelry with this style. You're already riding a fine line between people questioning if you rolled out of bed, so the more accessories, the better.
To this same note, I'd also avoid a messy undo or minimal makeup. Hair doesn't have to be elaborate, but again, save the just-rolled-out-of-bed hair for your '70s boho styling. ;) A bold lip or dramatic cateye are going to work wonders here.
Statement-making sunglasses, like these from Donna's Dress Shop, can really help stylize the look, here giving it an edgy vintage feel.
What do you think? Would you take pajamas to the street?
