There's more than one way to keep a toddler in his or her crib. Just ask Jeff Frese. After watching his daughter make easy escapes from her crib — during which she interrupted his much-needed sleep — he was desperate to find a safe way to keep her in her place. While crib tents seem like an easy solution, a recent nationwide recall sent the NYC dad searching for a safer solution.
The result: Crib Pants, a footie for active tots that is restrictive enough to keep them in the crib but flexible enough to allow them to move around and play in their space. The pants of the footie have a bat-like wing sewn between the legs that prevents little ones from raising their legs high enough to escape their cribs. The product makes its Kickstarter debut today, where a limited early-backer reward will include two pairs for the price of one at $25. Crib Pants' designers hope to raise $10,000 to "kick" the pants to market. Watch the video that details how the pants came to be, and tell us: would you buy a pair?
While some ladies opted to dress up for Glamour's Women of the Year Awards in London, Rashida Jones kept it casual and comfortable in a floral Erdem pajama set. The PJ trend has been around for some time now, but the actress chose to give it her own spin with fresh florals, a black clutch, and black pumps. Note that unlike real pajama pants, hers were formfitting, creating a much sleeker style. Bright yellow piping also added further interest. So, do you think Rashida's look is perfect for a night out or better left in bed?

Our lazy weekends are usually composed of watching Lifetime movies, catching up on our magazines, and indulging in a little bit of junk food — all while dressed in our pj's, of course. While we'll always hold a special place in our hearts for the raggedy oversize sweatshirt, we scoped out the cutest and coziest loungewear to stay warm in all season long. From the softest flannel pajamas to a luxurious silk set, there's something for every lazy lady.

Maybe it's that Carrie Bradshaw factor — how she appeared effortlessly comfy and cool all at once while folding laundry or organizing her closet. Slipping out of your daywear doesn't have to mean surrendering your style to your college sweats or your boyfriend's tee (though, admittedly, we have a soft spot for those pieces, too). Instead, we've combed the market for the most covetable loungewear, from a sweet, floral-printed romper to a pajama set that you may just want to wear outside the bedroom. Click through for 11 pieces that pull double duty as the comfiest, chicest gear to throw on at home or even style up for the street.
Although pajamas are a bedtime staple for most, gutsy celebs are showcasing how to style sophisticated sleepwear for daytime, as well as on the red carpet. Test-drive this trend for daytime — printed pajama topper and distressed denim — like Drew Barrymore, spice it up with heels like Rihanna in Pucci for an evening look, or go full throttle with a slimming silk set and matching sequin blazer like Elisa Sednaoui in Ferragamo for a fabulous cocktail party. Whichever look you choose, we can assure you that this trend's comfort and style will have you rethinking all of your chic sleepwear. Step inside to see who else has embraced the pajama trend and to shop the looks for yourself.
This isn't the first time we've seen pajamas go from bedtime staple to red-carpet wear, but it may just be the best few takes on the trend. Fashion pros and celebs alike are embracing the easy separates — and while our first thought was this: if someone's giving us the opportunity to wear our comfiest sleep-time staples right out on the street, why wouldn't we?! That impulse was also checked with visions of the not-so-well-executed take on the trend that makes them look, well, more like pajamas and less like eveningwear. Fortunately, Caroline Sieber in Louis Vuitton, Rihanna in Pucci, and Elisa Sednaoui in Salvatore Ferragamo have all zeroed in on the key to pulling off these pieces perfectly (read: not so literally). Check out our styling tips below, then shop the trend to find your own pair of dress-worthy pjs.
- Take a cue from this styled crew and avoid flat footwear — anything like a ballet flat or flat sandal is going to look like a house slipper. Elevate the style with a pair of sexy heels to contrast the easy silhouettes and give them a dressier spin.
- Don't be afraid to add interest with a jacket à la Elisa Sednaoui. Her sparkly blazer finishes the whole look with a touch of glamour to offset the more casual feel of her top and trousers.
- If you're too timid to try both the pajama top and bottom, channel the look by opting for one piece at a time. You can add your pajama bottoms to a fitted tank and wedges for an elegant day look or throw on the pajama jacket with skinny jeans and heels at night.
Snuggle up! New pajamas are one of the few gifts that can be confidently purchased year after year; kids have a tendency to grow and to wear their favorite jammies until they're barely held together by one lone snap.
Keep reading for some of the cutest, coziest, pajamas available. Christmas celebrants might consider letting tots open just this one gift a day early so they can greet Christmas morning in their sweet new duds — and maybe even stay in them all day long!
