How many days a week do you wish you could just sleep until noon? Or not set an alarm at all? Though that’s not exactly realistic, I’ve found a great, and not to mention chic, way to wear your pajamas to work! Well, kinda. These amazing striped wide leg Derek Lam trousers (similar here) are a great alternative to your normal work pants or jeans. They’re loose enough to be comfortable in the warm summer weather and tailored enough to be appropriate for the workplace! Plus the vertical stripes are super elongating and a fun change from a solid color.
I paired these pants with a Derek Lam top, which is as preppy as it is cool girl chic. I love the layered effect and the fringe! This top is on the pricey side, but you can easily recreate it with a sleeveless button down like this one and a textured tank like this one! See? Who said you can’t layer during the summer? I finished the look off with my go-to summer slip-ons by ACNE Studios and a good pair of sunnies by Gentle Monster and my Derek Lam bucket bag.
So do you think you could wear your pajamas to work? If repetition is not a sin, I would repeatedly be wearing wide legged pants and slides all day every day! It’s one of those outfits that scream “I am too cool to care,” but more importantly it’s incredibly comfortable and makes me feel like I’m still on vacation in Morocco. (Not to mention that these Acne slides were COMPLETELY inspired by the Moroccan babouche slippers.) Be sure to check below for my pj-esque picks!
