The pajama trend, while nothing new, is largely uncharted territory for even the most ambitious among us. For one, what exactly is it about a pair of PJs that can transform them from around-the-house garb to something socially acceptable to wear in public?

And whether you’re wearing your pajamas alone or as a set, they should be relatively slim-fitting, lest you want to look like you’ve simply forgotten to get dressed. Ahead we found 17 pairs of chic-as-hell pajamas that you can totally wear outside the house. But, if you resolve to keep them indoor-wear only, we hear you.
