There have been some questionable fashion trends over the years, but this new idea might top them all… An increasing number of people are taking to the streets in their pajamas. We’re not just talking about a quick trip to the letterbox or the corner store either; these people are spending the whole day out in their PJ’s.
While it’s important to be comfortable in what you wear, some people are saying it’s just poor taste to spend a day out in your sleep wear.
“Pajamas are not clothes for wearing outside unless outside is getting your newspaper from the front walk or walking your dog (if you live in the ruralest of rural areas). Otherwise, you need to knock it off,” said one disapproving spectator on Gawker.
What do you do though when designer brands are encouraging this new trend and are selling silk PJ’s to their customers for thousands of dollars? Gucci, Dior and Chanel have all sent models down the runway wearing ‘fancy’ pajamas and then trend has even made it’s way into some Australian stores.
One pajama enthusiast told The Guardian,”wearing pajamas during the day is actually the height of fashion right now” – as hard as that is to believe.
It seems it not just happening on the streets either; a judge in America had to put a sign outside his courtroom telling people not to wear pajamas inside. He’d had so many people wearing their sleep wear to court he was forced to hang a sign reading: ‘Pajamas are not appropriate attire for district court’.
The jury’s out on this one as far as we’re concerned!
