Pajamas for Outside the House: Comfy or Crazy?

Most of us have gone through a phase where we wore pajamas to class, or even to the deli to grab a quick coffee. But now, designers are trying to turn pajamas into a legitimate outfit. Maybe the Pajama Jeans people were on to something.

In August, designer Rachel Roy (below) wore pajamas with a necklace and Manolo heels on the red carpet for the "One Day" premiere. Yes, a prominent fashion designer wore pajamas to an A-list event.



French fashion house Celine has a striped-set collection (available in December), and Tommy Hilfiger's silky pajamas sold out almost immediately when they hit stores this fall, The New York Post reports.

Alexa Chung designed a silk palm-printed navy set for Madewell, which believe it or not cost $400 for top and bottoms (they're $200 sold separately). On the Madewell website, they are currently sold out.

So what the heck is going on here? Our theory is that the only people rich enough to afford these "designer" pajamas don't have real jobs, so they can afford to wear pajamas all day. Would you wear pajamas outside the house? And if you did, would you be willing to spend $400 on a pair?

    I am one of those people who would prefer to wear comfortable pants to work in but with my trying to lose weight these pants might make this much easier.

    i would go out in my pajama bottoms with my friends and a cute tanktop with flipflops. but it would depend where im going. id never ever ever spend 400$ on pjs, the most id go is 50. n theyde have to be really really pretty and comfy

    I don't think that it's crazy and pajamas are comfortable. I answered comfy because 1st off there is not a it doesn't matter to me button, and 2nd I do find them comfortable but I wouldn't go out in public in my pajamas but that's me. As long as they wear underwear under their pajamas and for girls bra under their pajama shirt and underwear under their pajama pants or shorts. Like I just said as long as they are wearing underwear underneath their pajama pants, shorts, than I have nothing against it, because they chose to wear it not me.

    Ok, they're comfortable. And I can allow going for a quick trip to the store around the corner in pj bottoms, but adding heels and jewelry to my pajamas? RIDICULOUS.

    I'm surprised people seeing a person wearing pajamas in public, don't think they escaped from a mental facility or are disoriented. I would believe in most malls they would be asked to leave by security.

    Wearing clothes isn't just about how we look. It's also how we express ourselves and a form of nonverbal communication. Wearing pj's in public is basically saying, "I really don't care enough about you or this to bother getting dressed."

    I disagree. I wear pj's to my school and do you know what I'm basically saying? "You made me wake up before the sun even came out to say hello, don't expect me to get dressed as well!"

    Pajamas in public with heels and a purse? Good grief ... some folks will do anything for attention...
    However, I have no problem whatsoever wearing pj's all day when I'm home ... why not .. comfortable and relaxing..

    I think she did it for attention (she's not a well known designer, maybe she thought that will definitely make her more memorable) not just a fashion statement. She looks ridiculous.

    I like to be comfortable but I would not wear it as outerwear especially to an event like that. Fine if you wear it to lounge in at home. Don't think it's a big deal either if you wearing it while outside near your home.

    PJ's outside the house....I usually only see the poor doing that in the city. Walmart is a fine example here. Not only does it look bad, but it looks bad against people's opinion of you. For example I think it's pretty lazy if you can't get your ass up to wear normal clothes like the rest of us....

    I cannot believe you said "I usually only see the poor doing that in the city" That is so judge mental! I have seen, as well as done, MANY people go out into public wearing their pyjamas and half the time you cant even tell that's what they are. DON'T disrespect people because they are "poor". Do you think that you are better then anyone else? Because you sound as if you do.

    As an EMT I've seen the poor, I know they're poor, and when they use my ambulance as a taxi I have to listen about how poor they are. Poor is poor, sorry if that offends you. No I am no higher than anyone else, what a ridiculous thing to say.

    I'll admit to wearing PJ pants sometimes outside, but I'd never wear full actual pjs out somewhere. Come to think of it I don't even own a pajama set, just pants. I ♥ my Stewie Griffin pants.

    Yeah because you can totally wear pajamas to your big corporate jobs or to your college classes or to your job as a janitor.

    KRAZY!!! THIS IS MY BIGGEST PET PEEVE. (And yes, I was yelling this comment ;) Sleepwear should ONLY be worn when you are sleeping!!!! No where else. Rolling out of bed and going around in your jammies is gross and is just another example of why the world is going to hell in a hand basket. And for those people that say, "I am not dirty, I wear clean pajamas out". I don't care if they are dirty or clean, it is just as easy to wear CLOTHES out.
