7 Cool Pajamas And Sleepwear Sets You Could Theoretically Wear Straight To Work

It may feel like you’re in a bit of a holiday wasteland after the winter holidays and Easter or Passover festivities, just waiting around for an excuse to eat copious amounts of food and lounge around in your pajamas at your parents’ house. While you may not be able to take a day off of work to watch Netflix in your PJs, you might be surprised to learn that you can actually wear said PJs to work. April 16th is National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day, a sort of Casual Friday to the extreme that may even make you feel excited to get out of bed in the morning. And because it falls the day after Tax Day, I think that you more than deserve it.

While you prepare for the brilliance that is Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day, you might want to brush up on your “How to Be Productive in Your Sweats” skills — and possibly invest in a pair of work-appropriate pajamas just for the occasion. They may be great for sleeping, but your PINK short shorts leftover from college and that Goo Goo Dolls T-shirt that’s covered in holes aren’t exactly cohesive to your five-year plan — so shop these instead.

Plaid Sleep Set

Plaid Sleep Set, $42, Gap

If you want to really go all out on Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day, this warm flannel sleep shirt and matching pants will make you the best dressed in your office.

Sleep Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit, $25, H&M

If you’re a jumpsuit type of girl, you’ll love lounging at your desk all day in these one-piece pajamas. Just add a long cardigan to make it work-appropriate.

Coffee Tank

Coffee Now PJ Set, $13, Forever 21

Tell your coworkers how you really feel about mornings with this cheeky sleep tank. Just add your favorite PJ pants and a cozy zip-up hoodie to create the perfect Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day outfit.

Vintage Pajama Set

Vintage Pajama Set, $95, J.Crew

There’s nothing more classic than a great vintage-style pajama set. It also doubles as the perfect fancy staycation outfit after Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day is over.

Chic Sweatpants

Women’s Twill-Waist Sweatpants, $23, Old Navy

They may not technically be pajamas, but it’s hard to find comfy clothes that are chicer than the current slim sweats.

Wild and Crazy Sleep Pants

Zebra Sleep Pants, $49, Anthropologie

If a full flannel sleep set isn’t really your style, pick a pair of boho-inspired sleep pants in an eclectic pattern. Just add a slouchy T-shirt and throw your hair in a messy bun.

A Feminine PJ Set

The Mayfair Pajama, $52, Victorias Secret

Turn the classic menswear-style pajama set on its head with a set in a fun, feminine print just like this one.
