7 Tricks to Style Pajama Outfits as Casual Wear

The trend of pajama outfits as casual and even office wear has been going strong for the past few seasons. Here's how to style it for fall.

Honestly, who wouldn't want to roll out of bed in the morning and proceed throughout the day in their comfortable pajamas? We'd probably be a whole lot more productive without having to worry about constrictive, uncomfortable clothing anyway! 

Well, it seems the tables have turned and pajamas have entered the mainstream fashion world. They're no longer reserved for sleepover parties and PJ day at school. 

If you're looking to get in on the trend and style a pair of pajamas for fall, here's how to pull off pajama outfits.

Top Tips on How to Style Chic Pajama Outfits for Fall 

According to some of the fashion world's most stylish icons, pajamas are no longer reserved for the privacy of your home. Just the same as athleisure, your gym gear can now be worn in public and make a fashion statement, to boot.

Clearly, comfort is key and right on-trend, and women the world over are rejoicing for it. But if you're still a little tentative about the pajama fashion trend, that's understandable. After all, there's a fine line between looking runway chic and disheveled these days. 

So, how do you pull off a pajama outfit without looking like you've literally just rolled out of bed? Here are 7 styling tips to help:  

1. Do Not Wear the Pajamas You've Slept In 

Right, so you're ready to rock a pair of chic pajamas for the day but the key to doing so is to avoid looking rumpled. If you want to look like you've just rolled out of bed, this is the way to do it! 

If you're looking to wear pajamas, make sure there are no wrinkles in sight. It's wise to steam or iron out any creases, especially if you're going with a cotton-based pajama set. Ideally, you should hang your pajamas up the night before so they're polished and ready for the following day.    

Keep in mind there's a big difference between a polished and lived-in look, and polished is always key when styling pajamas. 

2. Opt For Black Tailored Pieces 

If you aren't quite brave enough to wear an entire pajama set for the day, you can start off with just a pair of pajama bottoms. A great way to keep it simple and stylish is to pair these bottoms with black, well-tailored pieces on top. 

A fast-track way to look messy or sloppy is by wearing items that are a little too slouchy. Try to mix casual with sharp components and you should be able to nail the pajama-chic look. 

3. Silk Is Your Safest Bet 

Another key element in pulling off pajamas as casual wear is to choose the right type of fabric. Silk is, quite simply, your safest bet. 

Silk has a natural flow, elegance and formal feel to it and can easily pass as casual outerwear, rather than pajamas. A great way to dress up your silk pajama outfit is with a classic pair of pointed-toe heels and a simple tote bag for a more office-appropriate look. 

4. Layer, Layer, Layer 

Ideally, you want people to look at your outfit and not have to question whether you're wearing pajamas or not. And if they do, at least they will appreciate your fashion-forward boldness! 

A terrific way to style pajamas for the day time is with layers. You can throw a blazer or chunky-knit cardigan over your pajama top, pair with heels, and call it a day. 

To add a little more structure to the baggy-feel of pajamas, you can even layer a dress over a short-sleeve pajama top to smooth it out and add some shape to your look. 

5. Add Accessories 

A simple way to elevate a pajama outfit and pull everything together for a chic, modern feel is with accessories. In fact, this is an age-old trick for almost any type of outfit, no matter the occasion. 

Style a simple, all-white or striped pajama set with your large, chunky jewelry and a simple clutch. Throw on your favorite pair of strappy heels, a statement tote bag and black sunglasses and your outfit is instantly enviable. 

6. Go Matchy-Matchy 

If you're not into prints, that's okay. Not everyone loves the boldness of florals, color, stripes, and graphics. But a great way to make a statement with your pajama outfit for fall is to match up your pajama set with other complementary pieces.

For example, if you're wearing a navy blue silk pajama set, throw on a statement blazer over the top in a complementary color, such as black, white, or even gold.

You can do the same with a tan-colored leather jacket and matching heels. The key is to keep colors solid, but complementary for a pulled-together look. 

7. Print Your Heart Out 

On the other hand, if florals and prints are your thing, then, by all means, go wild! Okay, maybe not too wild...

A playful yet stylish pajama outfit idea for fall is to mix a pair of floral pajama bottoms with something a little more formal and structured on top. Throw on a solid cardigan in neutral cream, beige or brown to tone things down and tie it all together.
