How to Wear Slippers Outside of the Bedroom
For decades, heels shaped our views on women’s fashion, with the pain merely being a side effect of the aesthetical appeal. Christian Louboutin once said, “I wouldn’t take it as a compliment if someone looked at one of my shoes and said, ‘Oh, that looks like a comfortable shoe,” which would lead us to believe that flats could never have the stature and the sophistication of a pump, wedge or a stiletto.But something amazing happened in the last couple of years, where we saw the ushering in of the athleisure trend, putting our comfort at the forefront of high fashion. Runway show after runway show, design houses have flattened the heel of their footwear, creating chunkier heels and flatforms. However, it was the strong presence of flats that indicated the evolution in fashion, as flat shoes have taken over heels as the new must-have. Even slippers are seeing their light of day beyond bedroom walls.
Fashionistas in the blogosphere and Hollywood have proven the versatility and functionality of the slip-on to help style minded women embrace the lounge shoes. But in case you’re lacking outfit inspiration, here are a few suggestions you can work off of.
A Blazer and Leggings

Stilettos may make your legs look slender, but the black and white colors of the slip-on are perfect for a monochromatic office appropriate look. Feel free to carry vibrant colored back for some extra pop.
A Tee and Black Slip
We all know that the easiest way to dress down the sexy slip is by layering it over a white tee. While the Kardashians have opted her options such as OTKs, moto boots and sandals to match the hue of their dress, others have chosen to pair the ensemble with tennis shoes. Sneakers and the slip together make a great combination, but if you’re looking to switch things up, step into an effortless pair of slippers to make use of two boudoir staples in your outfit.
Experts say that the style of your jumpsuit will determine whether you should wear heels or booties with the one-piece, but no matter if it’s cropped and fitted or wide-leg, slippers will do your overall look justice. For a formal twist to the jumpsuit, wear it with a slipper with a thinner, metallic strap.
