Perhaps the desire to stay in pajamas has followed you on a morning grocery run or trip to your favorite café for breakfast. With brands like La Perla offering pieces at the intersection of ready-to-wear and lingerie, it is easier than ever to slip on some sneakers and head straight outside. While these pieces pair well with tousled morning hair for a woke-up-like-this look, you could even work some pieces into an outfit for the office. Picture lace bodysuits under cropped or wide-legged pants from The Row and topped off with a sleek blazer. Or picture palazzo pants in gorgeous prints that brighten up the office space when paired with a perfectly tailored shirt. Almost instantaneously you’ll have outfits that scream “office-appropriate”, “sophisticated” and “playful” all at once. After work, you can swap the blazer for a silk bomber with delicate florals. Bring a silk slip dress with you and head straight to a cocktail date from work. Light and easy transition pieces are in so kiss goodbye to nightmarish moments of chasing after cabs during the evening rush hour with unwieldy garment bags swinging wildly from your arms.
