Who would have ever thought that Julian Schnabel’s careless pajama style would spark a fashion trend? Indeed the iconoclast artist/filmmaker saw his signature bedclothes-for-day look reinterpreted at Céline (in cool batik prints that even Kanye West fell for this spring and pint-stripes for resort) and Tommy Hilfiger, where this fall, gentlemanly silk jammies stole the show.

Fretting this casual trend is a little too outré for you? Enter FLARE Associate Fashion Editor, Fiona Green, who shows that pajama dressing can also be office ready without looking like you slept at your desk.

Add ons
: “Accessories are everything; avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed by completing the look with bold jewelry and sleek heels or louche velvet loafers.”

Pattern play
: “Mix-and-clash eclectic prints for the coolest pairings, rather than wearing an overly matchy pj set.”

Keep it chic: “Finishing touches elevate a super laid-back look; forgo bedhead and opt for tidy hair and polished nails.”
