  • Lockdown 3.0 is upon us, and one of the best ways to feel truly comfortable at home is to invest in the best slippers for women, as well as some seriously good loungewear. Plus, with the cold spell we’re having, there really is no better time to invest.

    If you’re trying to save money right now, this is possibly the only piece of footwear you won’t feel guilty about buying (well apart from walking boots that is), given you are probably getting so much wear out of them. In other words, they are an essential item.

    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 knitted tracksuit bottoms need. It’s not like any of us are dressing up right now, is it?

    That said, slippers 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. Zara and H&M have some 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 slipper, which will look extra chic with another one of this autumn’s biggest trends: the knitted dress.

    On the classic side of things, you’ll never go wrong with sheepskin, knitted or fluffy slippers, and UGG, M&S and John Lewis have some great options for those. Those are slightly more durable fabrics too, meaning you’ll still be able to wear them next year.

    With that in mind, please scroll down and 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.
