I was watching Top Chef and minding my own business when this horrible commercial came on. "Jeans" for you to sleep in. Complete with fake fly affixed. Apparently, someone thinks that jeans are hard to get on and uncomfortable--my advice is to then buy the right size and quit trying to wear something you stole from a 14 year old.
Here is why I think Pajama Jeans are only fit to be thrown away, a completely stupid trend. Your pants should not pretend to be something they're not. These pants are not jeans, they're spandex tubes that you probably shouldn't wear. They're not going to do you any favors--no way they hide cellulite, lumps or saggy bottom disease. They make it worse. Also, you do not need to look fully dressed, complete with jeans when you are sleeping. Worse yet, there is no need to wander around in public in your pajamas. PLEASE DON'T. No one wants to see you in your pjs. That's why we make regular pants. Regular pants aren't scary, they are your friend and you should wear them.
One of my favorite things is that the UK chain store Tesco has banned shoppers from wandering their aisles while wearing their pajamas. Seems reasonable enough. But, for some bizarre reason, people have decided that they must circumvent this rule and have decided that Pajama Jeans are the way to go. Now, what on earth makes people try to avoid wearing normal pants at all costs?!
