If you’ve followed the spring runways to a T, picked up a recent glossy or are a staunch classics-only gal, you won’t be able to run away from this trend either way: Pajamas. As seen on the likes of Michael Kors, Thakoon and Donna Karan’s spring runways, the pajama-inspired trend is spilling into fall and resort 2012.

Completely forgiving, pajama dressing offers a comfort only of its own, with languid, flowing fabrics that provide a more relaxed (and comfortable) alternative to denim or stiff cotton. Instead of going for a head-to-toe jammie look like some designers showcased on the runway, try these tips to adapt this trend to a versatile and wearable realism. Photos courtesy of style.com:
1. Back to basics: Since most pajama-inspired pants tend to have fun patterns, pair yours with a simple, no-fringe top with minimal detailing.
2. Fun accessories: Mix up your look to steer clear of a total “pajama” look and add key accessories to pull the trend together such as with clogs or statement jewelery.
3. Don a blazer: A simple blazer is the easiest way to create a sophisticated edge to a pajama inspired outfit. Because pajama inspired clothing is also loose and flowy, the structured blazer will help break up proportions.
How do you feel about the pajama-inspired trend? At least it’s better than a onesie.
