Take Loungewear To The Streets

Stylist, blogger, actress, and TV host: You'd be forgiven for thinking that's the bio of four different people, but nope — we're describing the day jobs of just one dynamo, Grasie Mercedes. Whether she's helping style-seekers channel their inner Rihannas on MTV's Girl Get Your Mind Right or rocking a leopard turban and a Biggie tee on her (frankly amazing) blog, Style Me Grasie, Mercedes brings her own inimitable brand of swag to any look, like only a native New Yorker can.
Hoping to borrow a little bit of that freshness, we asked Mercedes for the scoop on how to style her two most loved fall pieces: the pajama-style top and the Motorola Moto X phone that helps her keep track of her beyond-busy life — and whose colors you can customize to set off any outfit (because let's be honest, what other accessory do you carry on the daily?).
Now, wearing PJs outside of bed might sound tricky to pull off — but Mercedes manages to take the look from happy hour to date night and beyond. Besides, when a girl hustles as hard as Mercedes, she deserves to be as comfy as she is chic, don't you think?
Click on for three genius, must-copy outfits that — thanks to Mercedes — you can put together in your sleep.
