DOS
• GO LUX
If you’re going to wear pajamas outside the bedroom, it’s best to stick to silk, satin or other high-end fabrics.

• HAVE IT TAILORED
As pajamas are still be a bit risky as far as everyday attire goes, having a tailored top with a perfect fit goes a long way to making sure you look classy and refined in it.

• DRESS THEM UP
Paired with dressy shoes, for instance, elevates the pajamas into something you can wear with confidence on an evening out with friends.

 

DON’TS
• STRIPES
The classic striped pajama set is not recommended for daily wear. Basically, you want fashionable pajamas. So go for bold prints.

• WEAR CHILDISH PRINTS
On the flip side, pajamas with superhero logos, cartoon characters and the like should never leave the bedroom.

• WEAR OVERSIZED
Pajamas despite the obvious comfort factor of loose ones, when you want to incorporate pajamas into an everyday look, make sure it fits you perfectly.
