Pyjama pants are a BIG trend at the moment and I’m LOVING it! If nothing else they are incredibly comfy and I’d happily live in them 24/7. The only problem is they can be rather tricky to style as you don’t want to look like you’ve just rolled out of bed.
When I spotted these ZARA cropped, flowing trousers I knew I had to have them and at £15.99 you can’t argue! One thing I would say about them is they’re perfect if you’re on the shorter side, like me, but you might struggle with these ones if you’re tall, so I’ve added some alternatives below:
I thought I’d share a few of my favourite and fail safe tips to making pyjama pants look polished rather than asleep on the job!

I particularly like these ZARA ones because they’re so synched in at the waist which gives a much more elegant silhouette. Definitely try and find a pair that will nip in at your waist, not only is it far more flattering, but it also majorly detracts from that “still wearing last nights PJs” look.
Also add touches of interest or glamour to give that finished or perfected look. I went for a pop of orange in the shoes and carried it through to one of my bangles which also has a splash of orange. These little touches are how you successfully tie the look together so it becomes a style statement rather than a sleepy mess.
Even a bit of bling can work; try an amazing statement necklace for example. My only word of warning is not to go too overboard because if you’re doing a daytime look with pyjama pants the contrast of glamorous jewels with the laid back look of the trousers will definitely look at odds with each other.
Finally I think baring a touch of skin really helps in making pyjama pants look a little more presentable and sexy, rather than slobby! I styled my top to be slightly off one shoulder. Personally I’ve always believed less is more when it comes to baring flesh and there is something really sexy but still elegant about showing a bare shoulder or simply your décolletage.
I couldn’t have been happier or comfier in this outfit and I’m sure it will become a summer staple. Let me know if you have any more styling tips for pyjama pants, would LOVE to hear them!
