I had pajamas at work for a week and that’s what happened

“Du har på dig på arbejde i morgen? “My girlfriend looked up when I judged my clothes on Sunday evening.

“Ja,” sagde jeg næsten defensivt. Jeg var ved at gå i gang med en ugentlig oplevelse om, hvordan det er at have pyjamas i offentligheden. Ja, egentlige PJ’er (ikke de modsatte dem). I talk about clothes as you are meant to sleep in clothes that do not see the light of day. Du får ideen. When I had originally set the story up, I thought it would be a dream to work in pajamas in the names of research? Ja tak Men now it was time to actually do that, doubt and fear sat in. Min kæreste spidse kommentar hjalp heller ikke.

Arbejder i mode, det er svært at ikke feje op af tendenser. Designere sends something fresh down the runway and suddenly that’s all we want. It was exactly what happened during spring 2016 collections unfolded last fall-it was hard not to be seduced by Alexander Wang’s hero on a piped shirt, the beautiful blonde camisoles Phoebe Philo dreamed up on Céline and Riccardo Tisci from Givenchys relaxed adskiller med blonder. So began celebrities like Heidi Klum, Selena Gomez and Jessica Alba to embrace all things PJ, which only increased the trend in the trend. And of course there are many stories from magazines and websites (including this) about how to get the look in real life (I have written about the subject here, here and here.)

As it turns out to write about something and actually apply there are two very different things. Men if Prince George can wear his pajamas while doing something as monumentally as meeting Obama, I can surely exercise them (and I take life lessons from a 2 year old). Her er hvad der skete.

Pyjamas for a Week Slide 3
Dan McMahon

Jeg sover ikke godt søndag aften. I do not like to draw my attention to myself. Sure, I carry a tap when I feel a little crazy, but I talk it down with mating with neutral. Ideen om påfugl appellerer ikke til mig i det mindste. Faktisk er det nok mit værste mode mareridt.

In the morning I find humor in switching out of my usual PJs to another set of pajamas, but it’s a short-lived moment. Jeg begynder at stresse ud, hvordan jeg får mit sæt til at se mindre pyjama-y. Spoiler alarm: Der er ingen måde. I look literally out as I rolled out of bed. Efter en million forsøg på untucking, tucking og half-tucking, I settle on a relaxed half-tuck. Mænd er det det also afslappet nu? I hit on a fat red lip and threw on a ditch in desperation and wondered how such little tweaks can make you look infinitely more presentable. I’m taking a hot pink crossband and entering a pair of gold surfaces (why not just go out, right?).

Under min pendler er jeg mildt skuffet, når min outfit ikke tjener et andet blik eller hævet øjenbryn. New Yorkere har sikkert set krydsre ting end nogen tilfældig person iført et trykt PJ sæt. Alligevel føler jeg en stille opstemthed om at have pyjamas i offentligheden. There is something so remarkable rebellion over it, like I break the law – but really not.

As I go to my desk, I get a pair of “sweet PJs” and “I love your pyjamas look.” It helps, at I work on a fashion magazine. A colleague not even noticed. “Du ser bare meget street style-y,” siger hun. Butik. Men så spørger en anden: “You had it on the metro?!” Og så bliver jeg forvirret igen.

“Does it look like I’m actually wearing pajamas?” Jeg spændt spørger mit arbejde kone. “Um, ja”, siger hun efter en pause – sandsynligvis debatterer, om hun skal ligge. “Mænd, jeg er den mindste, de søde.”

Sød og forunderlig komfortabel. There is no waist band painfully digging into my skin or naughty dense tops. It feels like I work from home in the office.

Pyjamas for a Week Slide 2
Dan McMahon

After having squeezed out with a printed pajamaset on Monday, I know that the rest of the week will be a movie. I approach my second outfit with a blend of relief and exalted confidence. Jeg tager en piped pyjamatop og løfter den med et par tidløse stykker-en plettet navy nederdel, en Chanel pung (på permanent lån fra min mor).

It is as normal in the workplace. Selvom jeg må sige, skyder min selvtillid gennem taget når Melissa Rubini, Med stilModedesigner and the person who assigned me this story, looks me up and down and just saying, “I would carry it.” Dagsfremstillet.

Jeg elsker dette udseende. Den består af silkeagtige pyjamas adskiller sig fra til forskellige sæt. Just outside the bat, I have no problems with the eye-catching top (I wish I could Direkte I think that’s so soft), but the white bottom is basically a garderobefejl waiting to happen. For one, they are farally clean, which is fine if you plan to carry them for their intention to sleep. I’m late for work because I’m sweeping looking for something –hvad som helstPå bære under Jeg ejer ikke nøgne shapewear shorts, så jeg prøver på navy dem. No, it will not happen. As a last resort, I hit a few black Uniqlo Heattech leggings out of my box in the winter, and miraculously you can not tell me I have them. succes!

Men der er et andet problem: Bukserne rynker som ingen andre. In spite of they give them one more time with my dampbåd in the morning, they are cured at a meeting at. 11 – så meget, at det fremkalder en kommentar fra en kollega. Due to the untouched color, I must also be extra careful with spots (I drink my coffee with a straw, just in case). Denne outfit modtager dog de fleste komplimenter. “Så chik,” siger nogle af mine kolleger, som de brækker ved. The day goes by without a hitch, and luckily I do not overheat.

Pyjamas for a Week Slide 5
Dan McMahon

By Thursday, a colleague begins to be suspicious. “Hvad er der med din pyjamas udseende?” spørger hun. I move on.

This is inspired by a blend of baneudview. Bottoms og Gucci loafer dias er en nik til Alessandro Michele efterår 2015 Gucci line-up, mens på toppen (og den overordnede væskesilhouette) er en reference til Céline, Givenchy og Balenciaga forår 2016. I feel uncomfortable to show so much skin on office, so I move on a black leather blazer at the last minute. I find out that it also raises the soft shadow nicely.

Now I’m comfortable wearing a pajamas 24/7 (not to mention, literally comfortable), I do not want my PJ wear at the end. I still have the weekend in front, but for the last working day I decide to have fun with it. Jeg er sikker på at modregne den slouchy oversize top med skinnies, når jeg for at feje brede ben jeans, og slutte med sætning ekstramateriale, som en floral halskæde og chunky raffia sandaler.

When I get to the office, my always attentive colleagues are really pushing me for deets. “Okay, dette skal være et eksperiment,” beskylder de. I hule and tell them it’s a story, though I’m quite pleased that I was able to stay out for so long.

Uden for det er dagen temmelig uneventful. I’ll go to a friend’s birthday party after work, but I’ll be wiped out when the clock hits six. I go home and sit in for a night with Netflix and takeout in the couch and finally fall in the middle of an episode of Master of None. And I’m not even angry when I wake up two hours later and have to pull me to bed because all I have to do is take my pants and volià-I’m appropriately dressed.

Pyjamas for a Week Slide 4
Dan McMahon

Since that is the weekend, I stop stressing with trying to look at dressier and choose my standard off-duty staple: a simple black cami, a denim jacket and sneakers (the puppy is on loan from a kind of stranger at the request of our photographer, and I do not want to argue with such sweetness).

Jeg har en Bridal Fashion Week-show på dagsordenen, og i et øjeblik vil jeg snyde og bære noget dressier, men jeg sukker op og går. Jeg føler mig latterligt underdresset og utroligt selvbevidst, når jeg kommer derhen. I do not get anybody who judges me – the public is supervised, the designer is really chatty – but I’m distracted. Som kliché som det lyder, I realize that trust really is 90 percent of pulling something out.

Køb PJ: Yolke bukser, $ 254; yolke.com. Styled med Warby Parker sunglasses, Zara top, Levi’s denim jakke og New Balance sneakers.

Pyjamas for a Week Slide 1
Dan McMahon

Til grand finale går jeg til et jumpsuit (side note: hvem sover i et jumpsuit?). Jeg glider det over en vævtyndt tee, og ærligt ikke forlader min sofa resten af ​​dagen, undtagen for hurtig hurtigkørsel. Jeg føler mig ikke skyldig over det, fordi denne udseende blev lavet til lounge i plus it has been seven days right from PJs at this time!

Så hvad lærte jeg? In order to be open to print, for one and also how comfortable clothing contributes to productivity (I seriously never understood how distracting one for close pair of jeans can be in comparison). I discovered that it is worth venture out of your style comfort zone every time between because you never know what kind of compliments (and trust but not always) it can bring you in return. Men most importantly, I learned that if I ever get pressed on time, I can stay in my PJs, and nobody wants to bat.

Køb PJ: Gempicket jumpsuit (tilgængelig i næste måned); gempicket.com. Stylet med StyleMint tee og Vans slip-ons.
