I know it’s tempting … The mornings are cold and dark and all you can think of is how much you want to go back to bed, but come on. Wearing pajama pants to school or in public is just not acceptable.
Yes, pajama pants are very comfortable at home, but they should only be worn at home. “Why,” you ask? In every other situation when you are not at home, pajama pants look unprofessional, sloppy and can seriously damage your fashion sense.
I don’t care how pretty the pattern is or how warm they are. Don’t even try arguing with me about that!
Wearing pajama pants to school gives a bad impression. You emanate the “I’d rather be sleeping” or the “I don’t want to be here” vibe, which is not helpful to teachers.
I don’t know about you, but if I ever want to wear pajama pants, it’s because I feel exhausted and need an outfit to match my mood.
The key to dressing for the “exhausted” mood is to wear something that will make you look less tired, not more tired, but also be comfortable.
If you feel like wearing something comfy and warm, go for UGG boots, leggings and an oversized sweater instead of pajama pants.
I would also like to assert that wearing pajama pants to work is even worse. Though not very common, there are adults who do it.
They need to fix that problem before they become tempted to bring pillows to work.
There are a couple times when I break my own rules, though. The first would be during pajama day at school, when I wear pajama pants as a school spirit outfit.
The second instance is every Sunday when I go get the newspaper and expose myself, for 30 seconds to the public, as I step out in my pajama pants and slippers.
As much as everyone loves the comfort of pajama pants, the bad impression you can give by wearing them in public can be lasting, so it may be time to give your sense of style a wake-up call!
