After reading whowhatweardaily.com this morning, I was so curious about hostess pants (they showed the silk pair above from the line Elizabeth and James). Apparently women wore hostess pants when entertaining at home starting in the 50s, then the pants became more casual with bright prints in the 60s and 70s. I Googled hostess pants and found that women also wore hostess gowns, which were usually made of beautiful fabrics, reached the floor, and were often worn every night to the family dinner table. I love love love the idea of these outfits since I spend so much time at home. I don’t want to get dressed in something that I would wear out, but wearing pjs all day is not attractive or appealing either. I think the patio dresses that are big this season are also a great style to wear around the house. If someone stops by, you are not in your robe, but you are very comfortable. Hostess clothes are a more stylish choice than the Juicy Couture track suits and add a bit of originality to your lounging wardrobe. Just look how fabulous the Hostess Barbie below looks (available on Amazon).
