The Adult's Guide To Pajamas

I don’t know about you guys, but my pajama drawer is a scary, scary place. First of all, it’s filled to the brim; I wish I could say it’s chock-full with satin sets and sexy slips, but the reality is quite the opposite. It’s like a black hole of old Christmas pajamas, high school T-shirts, and sweatpants of boyfriends past. Then, of course, there’s the oversized sweatshirts, mismatched socks, and ratty boxers — often worn together for a sleep look that’s quite the sight to behold.

Part of “growing up” — aside from say, landing a job or opening that first credit card — is finally taking the leap to throw those dreadful pieces out in exchange for quality, comfortable pajamas that are actually nice to look at. From printed robes to cute sleep shirts and matching sets, the world of pajamas is deathly underrated, and as a real “adult,” it’s time to take advantage. Who knows, you might just sleep better, too. Click on for 30 pajama picks that will finally replace that old college combo.
