A single-breasted, pajama-stripe suit with a shawl collar and a navy polka-dot scarf are twists on classic menswear, embodying the new casual/luxe vibe.

Obama Pajama Party Host: Carrie Fisher and friends Venue: Ronald Reagan Building Crowd: Supporters of a nonprofit group that gives sleep togs to needy kids Dress code: "Pajamas or black tie / nightgown or ball gown" Which means: Pinstriped pj's, bunny slippers under ball gowns , adult-sized footed jammies and, for the more fashion forward, may we suggest Dolce & Gabbana's spring 2009 pajama-party collection? Quote of note: "Absolutely I'm wearing pajamas [to the party]! I wish I could wear pajamas everywhere. I spend a lot of my life in bed, which sounds a lot more sensual than it is. . . . I'll probably wear this sort of pale green nightgown that I got from a store in Paris called Sabbia Rosa &mdash' on the Left Bank — slippers and maybe even a velvet robe." — Actress, author and event hostess Carrie Fisher More: • They're first ladies of fashion too | Photos • The rules: What to wear to the unofficial inaugural balls • L.A. movers and shakers prep for Obama inauguration • A peek at the official 2009 Inaugural Ball sites • Obama Inauguration Events in L.A. • Is Washington the city that fashion forgot? • Lookback: Barack Obama went Hawaiian casual at Occidental College in L.A. • Michelle Obama's inaugural dress may set tone for her White House style • Obama memorabilia displayed in homes | Photos Peter Stigter
