Trend Spotting: Pajama Pants

Michael Kors S/S RTW 2010
Runway designers are often inspired by celebrities and some have been known to design entire collections around a particularly innovative and fashionable celeb. The Olsen twins have been one of these influencers before and I believe that they have done it again, only this time it's just one particular garment and just one Olsen twin.

Ashley Olsen rockin' the PJ Pants.
Typically it's Mary-kate who selects kooky looks to traipse around NY in, but every now and then Ashley wears some outlandish fur coat or in this instance, PJs. I never thought I would be an advocate for this look, but dammit I am. It's sort of grandma chic and when you're in your twenties, grandma chic is cool in an ironic no-other-age-group-including-grandmas-could-pull-this-look-off kind of way (yay hyphens).

I think I will try this look out, but just to make sure everyone is clear on the fact that I am at the forefront of a very avante guard trend I will wear heels. I wouldn't want people thinking I am one of those lazy high school students that can't be bothered to change in the morning, now would I?

There are many trends that I'm loving this season, but I just cannot get into this. But at the same time it took skinny jeans a LOOOONG time to grow on me... perhaps this will be the same? (Though I doubt it.)

Erin I am loving a lot of the trends this season too! This probably isn't your look, but I think you'll learn to appreciate it on others :P

this is a trend i think i'm going to pass, in my school everyone wears it anyway running to class in early morning. I won't exactly be ahead of trend now would i?

I am looking into some pretty quirky chameos from "ghostlove jewelery" on Etsy. I would look in other places and let you know too.

I like the way this looks on the runway but I'm not sure I could pull it off. If I do try though, I will be avoiding the ones of the typical pajama silk variety and dressing them up with heels. I would hate to look like one of those students who wears their pajama bottoms and Uggs to school all the time. Have a great weekend love! xx
