Spring 2017 Trend: Pajama Dressing


Pajama dressing—a trend we’re very glad to see hanging around, season after season. The very languid nature of this type of dressing (silken fabrics, loosely cut pants, sleep shirting made demure via Chinese collar, or invitingly intimate by way of low-cut, deshabille button downs) makes it so tempting, so easy, so sexy and yet to chic to pull these pieces on. The beauty of it? We feel physically comfortable, we know we look great—and then there’s nothing left to worry about.

Prada, no stranger to bedroom dressing (fall 2016’s corset belts, anyone?) veered more PJ than lingerie for spring, adorning pajama-type pants, shirts, and camisoles with feathers and beading,of all things. These, along with belts, made it clear these looks were meant to be worn out of bed only—ruffling one’s feathers is never a good thing. Pajamas for the street, however… Alessandro Michele also alluded, however briefly, to the trend for Gucci. One oversized, nightgown-ish frock made its way down the spring runway, stripes, ruffles and all. A daywear pajama option for the comfort-obsessed.

In New York, Zero + Maria Cornejo sent a collection down the runway entirely in white—although there were no obvious “pajama” looks, the breezy, intimate feel of the collection lent itself well to the romantic idea of lounging all day with loved ones, both indoors and out, equally nap and backyard luncheon ready. Each look, styled without shoes, made this particularly easy to imagine…

As can be trusted each season, Karla Martinez’s Piamita, and Francesca Ruffini Stoppani’s FRS each debuted a new set of pajama turned day and evening wear. The fact that our desire for these collections only grows stronger proves the staying power of this “trend”. But enough of the t-word. Shall we elevate this to staple?
