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.
Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr shared an intimate pic of her nursing baby Flynn, and we realized an inarguable fact: that woman is meant to model sleepwear. Yes, she's glowing and totally in her maternal element, but she's also beautiful in her feminine floral robe. Now we're inspired to revamp our boudoir, so we combed the market for some Miranda-worthy lingerie and loungewear that will totally make you want to ditch your day outfit.
>> When it's cold and dreary outside, we're keen on cozying up indoors. This Winter, we suggest you lounge around in our chic options from Bamford, J.Crew, Anthropologie, and Burberry. Vintage-inspired pajamas, cashmere robes, shearling-lined slippers . . . staying in never looked so good!
There is no nicer image to us than cotton pajamas on Christmas morning and if you should be sans-Grandma there's no reason why you can't really ham it up. Curl up on the couch in these his and hers union suits (both on sale) and send a live Christmas card to your friends and family. They will love it. If you're a onesy fan, check out our Spring 2009 trend report on the look.
Fashion should not turn off just because your eyes close at night. Not to scare you, but what if something odd happens and you're forced to run outside? Or, what if your favorite bed buddy surprises you at 3 a.m.? I'm not suggesting wearing a cocktail dress or stacked bangles to bed. I'm merely saying if it's comfortable and cute, but not marked sleepwear, wear it anyway.
Like this Only Hearts Metallic Skinny Tank ($66). It's not a traditional pajama, but how shiny would you look sleeping in it? Live a little, even in your sleep!
I've always loved pajama parties. There's something about cozy company, popcorn, and a scary movie that will always bring a wave of nostalgia. Now that I'm (cough) older, the soda might be replaced with champagne, but don't expect us to behave. Help me find a outfit that will take me back in time. Pillow fight, anyone?
I'll start you off with these UGG Australia Sheepskin Flip-Flops ($70) because they're decadently soft. Just looking at them makes me want to curl up.

This The Lake & Stars Genius Romper ($215) reminds me of those cute little onesies I wore as a child. That was then, this is now. I'm not so sure if I can pull this off without looking like an overgrown child. But wouldn't it look great under a pair of jeans?
While it's nice to be sexy in satin and lace, I like to switch things up in flirty cotton lingerie. And, I was instantly smitten with lingerie brand Undrest. Designer Maria Paz Navales take inspiration from her adventures in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo and creates fun and luxurious cotton intimates.
Her feminine accents of ribbons and ruffles create a super-girlie line of cheeky (pun intended) and comfy sleepwear. My favorite from the bunch is this peek-a-boo undie. Granny panties? I think not!
