Did you know that April 16th is National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day? But in the #MeToo era, there are some pajamas that both men and women might want to not wear to work. Here are some types of sleepwear outfits to avoid on National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day.
Pajamas are mostly revealing by nature. They are meant to be unrestrictive, comfortable and mostly worn in private. As a result, they often will show a lot of skin. Avoid rompers and other outfits that reveal too much for the workplace. Bear Romper ($9.99).
See Through Pajamas
It’s almost too obvious to mention, but anything see-through should stay at home. There’s no need for your coworkers to see your nipples or normally hidden tattoos.
Even if your pajamas aren’t see-through, make sure they also aren’t too tight. A tight outfit leaves little to the imagination.
Encourages Inappropriate Behavior
Make sure you don’t have any text or images on your pajamas that might encourage inappropriate behavior. For example, these innocent pajamas include the phrase “Bite Me” in their pattern. As a result, you should probably expect several coworkers to bite at you or make sexual biting comments. Bite Me pajamas ($24.99).
