As we’ve all learned from over a year of lockdowns, 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 when unexpected snow hits (wtf?) or a lighter pair for spring/summer, 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, no matter the weather.
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. 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 or raffia slipper, which will look extra chic with another one of this summer’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 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.
