There’s something so effortless and comfortable about silk tops and pants, and several contemporary womenswear designers have taken notice.

Impresarios like Stella McCartney, Amy Smilovic of Tibi and Nicole Richie of Winter Kate have created silk printed tops and pants that resemble pajamas, but are designed to be treated like ready-to-wear.

The relaxed separates have been spotted on celebrites like Beyonce and Rihanna. They team the silk pieces with heels and ornate accessories for a dressy look.

The “dressed-up pajamas” sensation is truly one-of-a-kind, turning the notion of pajamas for night on its head. The same way lingerie has been revamped to work for day, silk separates are given new life with the pajama trend.

What do you think of dressed-up pajamas, Clutchettes? Would you wear them?

    Maybe one piece at a time, like the pajama bottoms with a different top or vice versa but not together.

    noooooo i wish they would quit calling these pajamas! black folks are already going out in public in pajama pants, slippers, and rags already!!!! LOL

    Well I wear sweatpants, yoga pants, and pajama pants out in public anyway. They don’t look like sleepwear so I go out and about in them. And yes these are definitely pajamas especially what Rihanna and Nicole Ritchie are wearing because I have some satin pajama pants like that too. I’d rather this trend fly by though.

    It looks dumb on them to actually dress it up and make it look fashionable. If you want to wear some pajama or sleepwear pants, by all means go ahead but I’d rather not take part if this is some sort of “trend”. Nicole Ritchie looks like she tumbled straight out of bed and that is not cute! No bueno!!

    At least if you’re going to wear sleepwear, make it look like it’s not actually sleepwear. Sheesh!

    I don’t mind it. It’s just a two-piece playsuit if you ask me :)

    I still think these all make nice looking real pajamas to wear around the home. I just can’t do the outside thing…

    I just saw some on Rachel Roy’s site, they’re a bit sleeker, not so slouchy. I’d wear them if I was hosting a New Years Eve house party, so I wouldn’t have to worry about being cold in that thin fabric!
