Rad Or Bad? The Fancy Pajama Pant

While there are some lingerie that we're down to wear anytime—there are some pieces that we only mean to wear when we close our eyes to get some zzzs. We bemoaned the presence of pajama pants in class throughout our college days, but, it seems now that wide-legged and silk pants—sometimes even complete with drawstrings or questionable prints—are rearing their sleepy heads once again. Designers from Miu Miu to Reem Acra have put these comfy separates on their runways, and the sartorially minded are taking note, especially on sweltering summer days. So, should pajama pants be forever condemned as a fashion faux-pas? Or should they be welcomed as a easy, breezy summer staple? Weigh in, below!
