You know those days when you just don't want to get out of bed and get dressed? Well, now you don't have to! Loungewear as everyday clothing continues to hang around in 2012. That girl at the grocery store or the mall who is sporting plaid flannels and a T-shirt didn't forget to get dressed; she's embracing the loungewear trend.

And designers are getting in on the act. In August 2011, designer Rachel Roy sported her jammie pants with Manolo Blahniks at a movie premier. The New York fashion label and retail store Rag & Bone is another designer embracing the lounge look, and they'll have plenty of cardigan and comfy PJ bottoms displayed. Of course, for those of us who don't get to the Big Apple for our shopping needs, you can find the same looks at Old Navy, the Gap or Aeropostale.

And if you don't want your pajama pants to look too much like pajamas, there is that strange hybrid, the pajama jeans, as seen on TV.
