A Look I Like: Morning Coffee Run or... The Morning-After Run?
(TheSartorialist.com - February 05, 2009)
The pajama trend has been a controversial point in many fashion forums and discussions--with the main drawback being that it looks too sloppy to wear in public. Ever since I saw it in the early Prada collections, I have been intrigued by how elegant it can look. Obviously it takes someone with panache to pull it off. I think it works best when either the top or bottom is paired with something unexpected. (Ex. A silk pajama top with a satin evening skirt or pajama pants with a blazer, as seen above.) I love how stylist/editor Anastasia Barbieri created a long, unstructured silhouette with the oversized masculine blazer and beige scarf.
This reminds me of something that I used to do when I was a single college student living in the West Village--toss an overcoat over my jammies and run downstairs to Taylor's Bakery for a coffee or English breakfast tea...Although I doubt I looked nearly as chic!
