How to ACE Pajama Style


I admit that I don't have the confidence to dress in my pajamas anywhere but at home. When I first learned about this new trend, I was terrified or even petrified at the thought of me trying it out, like why would I want to look like a wet duck quacking on the streets? But that was before I wrote this post of course.  If you are up to the challenge and feeling adventurous there's no better time to wear pajamas everywhere like the street is our bedroom. But before we work up the courage to do the unthinkable, let's go over how to ace the pajamas trend. With some help from Mr. Marc Jacobs' Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 RTW collection and a couple of others like Lanvin and Rochas, I hope my interpretations will take us all to the top of the class!!

     Do I like a lot of attention? 
Do I have confidence?
      If yes to either one, please proceed.
      If no, please proceed anyway. Got great stuff ahead.

2) Do you own some nice pajamas?
Yes, great! 
If no, you'll need some nice ones if you want to succeed, indeed!

3) Think about your favorite patterns/colors/textures
Patterns: polka dots, floral, western, animal-prints, plaid,stripes etc
Colors: dark, light, neutral, bright
Texture: velvety, silky, flannel, cotton, etc.

4) What kind of shoes or accessories you would like to wear with pajamas?
Shoes: Stilettos, tennis shoes, sneakers, boots, sandals/etc.
Bags: totes, handbags, shoulder bags, clutches, backpacks, cross-body, etc

 If you feel better wearing just one piece of pajama top or bottom, go for it!  You can also add a nice piece of outerwear to give shape and structure of your pajamas. I think wearing a whole set is a bit more challenging so here are my tips:

a) You like to exude sex-appeal
Combine: lace + fur + silk/satin in seductive colors+stilettos
