5 Ways To Dress Up your PJs To Look Stylish & Comfortable

By Somdutta Mazumder

Updated - July 24, 2021 5 min read

Much to my dismay, the distance between fashion and I continues to expand every day. And this estrangement happened in stages, just like the lockdown that caused it. From the pre-lockdown era of devoting an hour picking my outfit, and doing a full face of natural-makeup look every morning, I was down to brushing my hair, slapping on some lip balm and wearing a respectable shirt with my tattered shorts for office calls, by the second week of quarantine. And now that we're inches away from crossing the 2-month mark in our new lockdown lives, I've never felt more separated from the notion of dressing up, ever. 

 

So, a few nights ago, I found myself standing in front of my full-length mirror, and scowling at my outfit choice of pyjamas dating back to undergrad years, and a black t-shirt splotched with the remnants of last nights dinner. And while I was busy internally screaming at the sorry state of my style affairs, I had what I'd like to call an epiphany. Yes, I don't need to step out and ergo, I don't need to dress up. But this cause-effect relationship was established by none other, than me, myself and I. 'Cause as far as I can recall, I was the flag bearer of dressing up for only myself before this lockdown started. Then, why oh why, did I stop simply because there was nobody else around? 

 

 

Don't worry, I wasn't using this story to set the stage for a suggestion to pull out your favourite LBD, or strut your 6-inch heels across the living room. You can continue wearing your pyjamas. In fact, I insist you do. Because what will follow now, is a round-up of 5 ways to dress up your PJs at home! Why? For the sole reason that we and our self-esteem, could use some glam every now and then. Especially when we're in the middle of what feels like a bad episode of a dystopian TV show. 

 

1. Layer Your PJ Slip Over A White T-Shirt 

 

Layering strappy dresses and maxi gowns over basic t-shirts have been one of the most trending styles this season. For an at-home version, you can swap the fancy strappy dresses for your night slip, and don it over a solid white t-shirt. You can take this PJ outfit idea a couple of notches higher on the trend quotient by sporting a choker on your neck, and pulling up your hair in a loose, messy ponytail.

3. Wear A PJ Shrug As A Kimono Over White On White

 

Statement outerwear is always a great idea, especially when the rest of your outfit is as basic as it gets. The at-home version of this trend translates to donning your PJ shrug or dressing gown as a summery slip-on over a solid coloured shorts and t-shirt outfit. For extra oomph, you can add a broad leather belt to your mid-rib for a boho-chic all-PJ look.

4. Pair A Printed PJ Bottom With A Solid Colour PJ Top 

 

This is one of the best ways to style PJs, without incorporating any fancier fashion piece at all. All you need to do here is mismatch a little bit! You can opt for printed bottoms and a solid coloured top, or flip the outfit combo by sporting plain black pyjamas with a vibrantly printed tee or PJ shirt.
