Pajamas: not just for bedtime anymore

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

I'd rather wear leggings and a tunic.

Oh! Wait..... :)

To me, it is just sheer slovenliness- can't be assed. All the clothes at their disposal, and they want to walk around looking like a garbage tip. Even us blokes wearing skirts look 100% better.
Thank goodness there are some women who want to look chic and feminine- albeit a slowly dying trend.

I do feel that this same argument was used when sportswear started to become more fashionable to wear on the street and not just the gym - lots of people hated the sight of jogging bottoms and leggings in public until it became broadly accepted. While I wouldn't wear pyjamas to visit the supermarket, I do think that that style of dress will become more mainstream in the future sadly.

If only we could encourage them into skirts and dresses instead of PJs. Much more stylish IMHO!!

Oh, goody. More bright hopes for the future.

At this rate, we'll be the most stylish-looking types around -- by default.

To me pajamas is sleepwear. I call my nightgown "pajamas". Maybe I should try to expand the pajama trend a little?

Maybe wearing pyjamas to go shopping is only phase one. Phase two could see them migrating to slippers, a bath towel wrap around and a shower cap. :shock:

One of our larger supermarket chains was reportedly allowing their store managers to remove customers wearing pajamas, onesies and the like. Reported as a dress code for shopping.

I just cannot understand the idea of rolling into the supermarket mid afternoon in night attire. Often with no attempt to look clean. Early morning perhaps it might be reasonable but even then it just looks wrong. The message I get is that I live on benefits and I don't care who knows.

mind you it is a good job I don't wear my night attire to shop as I would be au natural. To much of a shock for anybody!
