Slippers are always a worthwhile investment, as the best slippers you could own are the ones that not only keep your feet cosy but also earn some style points, too. Not merely an autumn/winter trend, slippers are a worthwhile investment all year round. Whether you're after a pair for chilling out at home, or something a bit fancier to dress up your favourite pyjamas, slippers have come a long way. We've whittled down the best slipper styles to suit your taste - and budget.
On the luxe end of things, shearling or cashmere slippers are the elevated 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. Or, just team with your best dressing gown for a glamorous night in. If you're looking for something more simple, lots of high street stores have affordable and stylish options that are the next best thing to hotel slippers.
What is a good brand of slippers for women?
For an affordable option, our go-tos include UGG, M&S, and The White Company. If you're after a luxury, more trend-led slipper why not try Olivia Von Halle or Sleeper.
For a slightly trendier option, I love the vintage vibes of a mule or feather slipper, which will work perfectly with printed pyjamas. If you want to go full cosy mode, shearling and sheepskin slippers with thick or fluffy linings will do the job - UGG and M&S have great options here.
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 their quality and durability.
Best slippers for women to buy now:
You can't beat a pair of slip-on Mocassins for comfort and ease. These come lined with a Sherpa interior to keep your feet warm all winter.
These leather mules are so stylish I'd be tempted to wear them out of the house.
These classic shearling mules are made of suede and feature Radley's discreet logo on a metal stud on the side.
A new style for Just Sheepskin, the Kara, like the other slippers in the collection, features Patented DREAMstep® technology, a gel-infused memory foam layer that creates a long lasting fully customised fit, plus it boasts the JUST Guard®, a water-resistant treatment to ensure your sheepskin stays looking fabulous.
Ukrainian label Sleeper may be known for its feather-trimmed pyjamas, but it has a gorgeous selection of footwear too, including these shearling slippers that double up as great party shoes.
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.
Stylish and versatile, these are a true hybrid—working just as well with nightwear as loungewear and daywear. In a timeless camel colourway, metal buckles on the two straps ensure you can adjust them for the perfect fit. I've had the same pair of The White Company slippers for years, so they are definitely worth the money.
These super affordable slippers are also very robust—perfect for popping on if you want a more sturdy shoe around the house. With a faux fur lining, they're snuggly enough and warm, with a stylish stitch detail that adds to the rustic aesthetic. At only £29.50, they're a great choice for a budget option.
I cannot recommend Zara slippers enough as they are so affordable and such good quality—and this pair will transport you straight to a cosy ski lodge with their super fluffy finish. These slippers make me feel like I'm staying at a fancy hotel when, in reality, I'm sat on my sofa.
Crafted in Italy, these chic Deji Studios slides are made from wool and feature a rubber grip flat sole, with a super chic finish. Kind to your feet and comfortable to wear, they're crafted from naturally breathable and antibacterial Australian wool. These are the kind of slippers that are so stylish, you'll want to wear them outside the house, too.
Treat your feet to the effortless comfort of these soft suede moccasin slippers. The soles are textured for extra grip and a neat bow on the toes adds the finishing touch—did someone say grandma chic? Perfect for those chillier evenings, this is a study pair of slippers that will last for years to come.
Featuring 100% premium wool, these slippers are every bit as cosy as they look. They'll be sure to keep you warm throughout winter with a generous lining and super fluffy finish. Plus, the slip-on style means that they're super easy to slip on and off as you go about your day.
If you're after a luxurious slipper, these Christian Louboutin slides are an iconic choice and will keep you cosy while being incredibly stylish. With a suede outer and a wool-fleece interior, they're sure to keep you toasty. We love the slingback style too—very on-trend for autumn/winter 2023.
There's a reason UGG slippers are such bestsellers, such is their quality that they last forever. This starfish pink shade is perfect for anyone who wants to try something a little different, though the chestnut version is also a total classic. Not sure about either of those? There are a total of 11 shades to choose from.
If you're looking for high-quality slippers, look no further than INUIKII. These slides are covered in pale-pink shearling that'll keep your feet warm, and the rubber sole means you can even pop outside in them. And the best news? These delightful slippers are currently on sale.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
