Market Report: Screw Real Clothes, Wear Pajamas

Winter’s starting to sound like heaven


Fuck the fucking winter, you know?

It was kind of cold, then it was freezing, then it snowed, then it was sunny, then it got warm and now it’s raining. Raining! The vicissitudes of this season are too difficult to weather (pun devastatingly intended) for an oversensitive woman with apparently shit blood circulation (that’s speculation, but my fingers and toes run cold). If the four seasons were a woman’s cycle, winter would be the part right before her period. Cue fire-breathing dragon emitting rays of ice.

And what do you do in the presence of a woman getting ready to ovulate? First, YOU SEND HER MY WAY AND ASK HER TO RUB HER OVARIES UP AGAINST ME. Then, you tell her to go home and relax. Get comfortable, feel luxurious in that state of uterine line-shedding.

But see, winters not going to do that — it’s just not how nature works. So instead of expecting it to go home, why don’t, uh, we just go home? Go home and lounge.

Put on those pajamas, add a coat if you’d like and get real cozy (I mean hygge). We owe it to ourselves! Do you have crystal-embellished slippers? Perfect. How about dramatic earrings? Take a selfie!

Or maybe you need your socks. And a pair of glasses in order to see.

But we’re not there yet (70-something more days!), so for now, let’s surrender ourselves to Ch-Ch-Changes month, kick up our bodysuits and gold chains and remain exactly the same.

  • Sorry, but no can do: as a stay-at-home freelancer I cannot succumb to any of the well-known clichés about people like me, which would be we wear pajamas all the time, snack compulsively all day and do our nails or check our phones to avoid serious work till it is too late to do any.
    So here I am, in my jeans, an almost clean shirt and a cardigan, working for real- errr … when I am not dropping by, of course.

    I will definitely try the slip dress and sweater combo – that I can get away with at the office! Also, this piece taught me a new word – vicissitudes. I googled it and now I want to use it every day in my vocabulary. #TheMoreYouKnow

      I’m a big fan of slip dresses and cardigans. I pretty much live in them all spring/summer at work. Even though we’re having a strange heat wave right now (it was almost 70 today!), no one wants to see my pasty winter legs. I’m still tempted to wear this combo tomorrow.

    Even though the slip in the second outfit costs only a little less than the rent I paid today … I feel a burning urge to wear it, or at least something similar on my budget. Something about having legs out in winter, instead of ensconced in tights/leggings/pj bottoms and fuzzy socks just seems so sophisticated.

  • Yvonne Dunlevie

    I live in LA, so I really don’t have anything to complain about weather wise, but the consistent rain the past couple of weeks sure has been putting me down (I’m a big baby, I know). So, I did in fact wear my pajamas to work the other day. Case in point :

    May I ask what the/a verdict on wearing silk pajamas outside of the house is i.e. as clothing is?? pls lmk as I’ve been very interested in doing this for a while

    • Anni

      Do it! But maybe use them as separates (only put one pc into your outfit) to play it safe if you are a little shy / work in a stuffy place, and if you feel sloppy add a pair of fancy put together shoes. I think the universe and MR have been singing the praises of the layered slip all season so all clear there too.

    This is everythingggg. Mostly because I just bet my boss I could wear pajamas everywhere for 31 days straight and make it look FIRE. It’s officially day 13, but this just gave me even more inspo/motivation/legitimized the past two weeks of my life.

    All of my pajama looks so far are on my insta: @cat_noel !! #teampjsforever

  • in Indonesia longer trend really dress like that. As long vest dress shirt that makes the appearance of added cool.
    if in the view seen from the photo above, it looks like the style of Korean style.

  • Actually you coat and jacket is perfect..
