Latest Trend for Teens: Pajamas at Prom?

When I was in high school, the big trend was the more rhinestones and sequins, the better. And although that was a long time ago (nope, I’m not giving you the year), it appears that things have changed quite a bit.

The Wall Street Journal tore a page out of Teen Vogue’s April 2012 prom issue this month to discuss the latest trend for prom, inspired by the mag—wearing pajamas to the dance.

Pajamas to prom? What happened to silk floor-length dresses and good, old-fashioned strappy heels?

WSJ claims that this new trend, menswear-inspired pajama looks for prom, is the hottest thing since peanut butter—and it all stems from adult fashions that grace the runway each season.

Jane Keltner de Valle, fashion news director for Teen Vogue, tells WSJ that young girls are taking cues from the runway and red carpet when choosing their looks these days, no matter what the event.

But isn’t half the fun of going to prom choosing your dress?
