Pyjamas are Meant For Bed, Right?

Everyone knows that the Fashion industry can, from time to time, come up with some random 'style' which is instantly mimicked by the mindless fashion pilgrims and is, at the end of the day, a complete joke.
Underwear as outerwear, anyone?

But I think this one takes the cake.

According to an article by the Daily Mail: Bananas For Pyjamas, the whole look of wearing pyjamas as an outfit is starting to catch on, with the likes of Stella McCartney and Jonathon Saunders showcasing the night sets in the catwalk collections.
The Daily Mail says; Jonathan Saunders explained the current PJ appeal as, ‘a more relaxed silhouette and a easy shape that hangs from the body.’ But to me, it just sounds like people are getting beyond lazy and cant even be bothered to get dressed in the morning!

-and there's me thinking that the staff of New Look in Lakeside on saturday where just in the Children In Need spirit, and wearing their pyjamas as a charity stunt.

Now, I have been 'mocked' for wearing printed palazzo pants, asking if I was running late this morning and forgot to get dressed, (Thanks college lot) But to a Fashionologist casual, slouchy trousers, teamed with a cami blouse or wooly jumper is a effortless way to be comfy and stylish or an oversized 'bed' shirt with peg-leg trousers or tucked into high-waisted shorts can do the same job - but to wear a full-blown pyjama set out of your front door is a little too far - Id look at you and think your going bananas.

I guess there's always a silver lining to everything.. you'll get extra time in bed, because there'll be no need to 'get dressed' in the mornings. And, you'll be prepared if you ever need to crash at a mates house at the last minute.

Although, I do wonder... will Tesco let people into their stores wearing pyjamas now - since its a fashion trend now?

Much love;
