To be honest, I find almost nothing more luxurious than a pair of good pajamas. (Yet another androgynous item to add to our trunk of clothing stolen from the boys, ladies: the plaid nightshirt.) While browsing one of my favorite blogs, The Sartorialist, I came across this picture of a stunning Milanian (I think every woman should try to exude that Italian confidence and bona fide beauty often.) sporting a fabulous pair of pajamas, but looking far more put together than just rolling out of bed. This photo got me thinking: what is it about certain pieces of clothing that turn an outfit into either wow or ouch. Obviously wearing night shirts in the day time is a bit of a risk, but why did this woman and the stylist Rachel Roy (featured below) choose to slip into their PJ's? As I said before, I think pajamas exude luxury; unintentionally, they perceive the act of lounging, and therefore display a relaxed look, but they also imbibe a sense of glamour in their defined piping, in their richness of fabrics including silk and pima cotton. So there you have it, a formula for luxury.
