What originally was known as a sleep wear, clothing that’s not supposed to see the light of day. You get the idea. No need to wait until spring (we don’t even have that in this part of the world) to pull off what could be the easiest, comfiest trend in recent memory. Street style stars have already endorsed the look by way of silk pajama sets and piped cotton night shirts (not to mention Gucci’s fur-lined slippers that editors and bloggers can’t seem to get enough of). We’ve seen chemises, onesie, lounge set and even full-on pajamas on the runways of Celine, Balenciaga and David Tlale, to name a couple, which is a very good news so what other confirmation do you need to try the trend.
The staple pieces for most guys whether they’re lounging having them look like they’ve just woken up from an extremely chic nap is an even greater flex than always looking like you are about to go to the gym. To be fair, menswear is lacking when it comes to references — the military, sports, Steve McQueen. So perhaps adding “sleep” to that short list is a much-needed boon. So, I finally decided to try this trend that I only admired on the runway and fashion royals. In all honesty, I think this lounge set might pop up a lot on my radar this fashion calendar year. Most importantly I could possibly see myself all dressed up in this lounge set at a highbrow tea place or a meeting over brunch.
