    As we’ve all learned over the years, there is one pair of footwear that is always worth investing in, and that’s the best slippers for women, as well as some seriously good loungewear. Whether you’re after a cosy pair for chilling out at home, or something a bit fancier to dress up your favourite pyjamas, there’s a style for everyone.

    The long and short of it is, slippers are absolutely an essential item you need to be spending your hard-earned cash on – guilt-free – no matter the weather or the occasion.

    Now we’ve got that point firmly out of the way, it’s time to take a look at your options, and there are much more than you’d think. On the luxe end of things, shearling or cashmere slippers are the bouji finishing touch your tracksuits or dresses need. Because it’s still worth looking great at home, isn’t it?

    On that point, the best slippers for women can be a way to add a bit of zhoosh to an outfit. For example a velvet moccasin or satin slip-on is a great indoor alternative to a party shoe. Lots of high street stores have affordable and stylish options that are the next best thing to hotel slippers.

    For a slightly trendier option, I love the vintage vibes of a mule or feather slipper, which will look extra chic with another one of this season’s biggest trends: the joyful dress.

    On the classic side of things, you’ll never go wrong with sheepskin, knitted or fluffy slippers, and UGG, M&S and more have some great options for those.

    In terms of budget, there is something for everyone. You’d be surprised how many designers have entered the slipper arena, with lavish designs. Yes, they are on the pricier end of things, but when you think about it, the cost-per-wear factor is definitely advantageous.

    With that in mind, enjoy some guilt-free shopping with my pick of the best slippers for women, available to shop right now – and while some of them are a little bit pricier, this is reflected in the quality and durability.

    The best slippers to buy now:

    I’ve scoured the internet and handpicked each pair of slippers in this roundup based on the brand, the style, the fabric and the colour. Team Marie Claire UK have even tested some of these styles themselves, so you know you’re in good hands.

    For a long-lasting slipper, I always go for something with a sturdy base, however if you want something lighter for summer, then a slightly thinner, slip-on style should do the trick. Fluffy slippers are perfect for keeping your feet warm, however they can shed, so if you want to avoid that, I recommend a waffle or towelling material. Keep on scrolling and take your pick…
