Stylish to the core
No, don’t turn up your nose if you see your looker of a neighbour walking into your party in breezy pajamas. He is just road-testing a new trend — dormcore! Dormcore draws inspiration from the college dorms in the US. The trend declares that it is not ill-mannered or unpolished to move around in loose, comfy pajamas in public.
With fashion forward celebs wearing pajamas in public, there can’t be a more convincing endorsement of the trend. Recently, Selena Gomez stepped out in Paris wearing an ink blue Derek Rose London set. Selena managed to look every bit gorgeous in the set that she teamed with straight hair, red lips and winged eyes, colourblocking the look with pop red sandals. Rihanna also recently wore pajamas in public. The fearless fashionista stepped out in pink silk pajamas paired with pink satin robe and pink Marabou Boudoir sandals. American actor Woody Harrelson also turned fashion rules on their heads when he went dormcore at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 premiere. Harrelson walked in wearing a T-shirt, pajamas and socks sans shoes.
Dormcore is popping up on the global ramp as well with designers presenting fun takes on pajamas. Right from Alexandara Wang to Givenchy, the comfy wear is having a fun moment. Closer home, designers are experimenting with versions that can be confidently worn outside homes. Here’s some inspiration to rock the look.
