Pajamas


Pajamas originated in India. Consisting of a jacket and trousers in soft cotton, silk or rayon worn for men’s sleepwear from the 1900s.

Beach and lounging pajamas for women , often distinguished by very wide pant legs , came into vogue in the 1920s and 1930s. They were the precursor to modern slacks.

They begin being worn as women’s sleepwear in the 1920s.

In Italy in the 1960s, very full legged pajamas were worn in the evening at home and gained popularity as palazzo pants.
