Loungewear is king for all of us stuck at home right now. Because there’s no set dress code for working and studying at home, we’ve have turned into creatures of comfort—breezing by our to-do list in the comfiest get-up possible. While the country is nowhere near ready to fully open up again, people are venturing out and bringing their comfort wear along with them.
PJs in public may seem revolutionary for those of us who are used to smart casual or even business casual dressing, but it can be a life-changing style choice, especially if you’ve come to realize how valuable comfort is over the quarantine. Survey your closet, pick some key sleepwear pieces and get ready to modify your day wardrobe with some of these valuable styling tips.
Pajama top makes a button-down
Tito polos move over, it’s all about the pajama top now. Hawaiian and tropical prints that are seen on tito polos are usually hard to style because of their bold prints and colors. But pajama tops come in a wider variety of designs and colors which makes them a versatile style choice. Go for a sleek but comfy look by pairing your solid-colored pajama-turned-button-down-top with breezy lounge pants and your fave pair of white sneakers. You can also make it fun and laid-back by donning your printed tops and adding your favorite baggy shorts and chunky sandals to the mix.
Monochrome mask set
Masks have been essential since the pandemic beganstarted and if you’ve been out and about for necessary movement since quarantine was imposed, you’ve probably amassed a handful of reusable masks with fun and quirky designs. Take your color theme to the next level by pairing complementary colors or prints to your pajama terno sets and elevate the look by adding easy accessories that we’re pretty sure you already have, like bucket hats or fanny packs. You’re not just protecting yourself and others, you’re also making mask-wearing fun and fashionable.
The unexpected collab we needed: satin, silk and denim
Nothing makes me feel more luxurious than silk and satin and nothing says casual like denim so why not mix both and come out with a stylish but comfy combo? Those long-sleeved fancy pajamas can be styled with high-waisted slim-fit jeans and your go-to strappy heels for a sleek look but if you’re feeling a bit too hot, why not style a short sleeved silky pajama top with tapered jeans so you can feel really cool—in all senses of the word.
Oversized shirts match with everything
Your well-loved oversized shirts can give you the cool and vintage look you’ve always wanted to go for. Aside from being comfy, these oversized staples can become literally anything. Going for a cropped top? Let’s tie a knot. Flexing the muscles you gained over quarantine? Let’s take some scissors and cut it up into a muscle tee. Running late because you overslept again? Put the biggest shirt you own and rock it as a dress. Oversized shirts are a blank canvas that can go from pambahay to fashion runway when you know how to dress them up. Pair them with accessories, colorful bottoms and the right shoes.
