Whoever thought that a piece of clothing designed for the night time in one’s home, would become a hit sensation and become daytime wear? Yes, I’m talking about the Pajama trend. From Rihanna strutting down the red carpet in Emilio Pucci, to Salma Hayek making her way through an airport, celebrities left, right and centre seem to be paying homage to Hugh Hefner’s daily apparel. There’s definitely been a mixed reception; perhaps because some wear the trend better than others. One key thing I’ve noticed that makes the trend work is heels. The heels detract attention from the somewhat bizarre outfit resulting in a very much chic look. My personal favourite would have to be Salma’s chequered pajama. Even though she seems to be wearing dolly shoes, the red lip, the red pattern on her shoes and on the fabric, I believe makes the outfit brilliant! Elisa Sednaoui comes second. The tight sequined blazer is tres chic and makes the pajama outfit look somewhat wearable. Perhaps that is why in certain parts of London, I have seen girls in pajamas roaming the streets! If this trend does go mainstream let’s hope we follow in the ways of our stylish celebrities before us!!
