Move away from the ballet pumps, there's a new flat in town and we can't resist its more masculine shape. Choose from our top 10 edit for an instant spring update
Forget the classic ballet pump, this season we’ve fallen head over heels (sorry…) with slipper shoes. Comfortable, stylish and bang on trend at the moment, what’s not to love?
Slipper shoes are just as convenient as your favourite pair of flats, but with a more masculine edge. Ultra chic and very fashionable, slipper shoes are the perfect way to update your look. Shoes this gorgeous deserved to be showed off, so pair with cropped trousers or a knee-length skirt for maximum effect.
Whatever the occasion, this new footwear trend is a fabulous choice. Whether you want to update your work look, are heading out for a night on the town or want to nail that relaxed but chic look for a weekend in the country, these are the shoes for you. The great thing is that they’re exceptionally comfortable, so whatever the day throws at you, slippers shoes can handle it – pain free!
Embarking on a day of shopping in the city? No problem – these beauties can handle hours of pounding the pavement, while looking fabulous. Going out to an event where you’re not quite sure what the dress code is? Play it safe and avoid looking too casual or too dressed up with a stylish blazer, some fitted black denim jeans, a chunky necklace and a pair of slipper shoes.
Sometimes building your whole look from the ground up makes perfect sense – particularly when you choose a head-turning pair of shoes like these sunny yellow Uterque slippers. The woven design adds to their unique appeal and we guarantee every time you look down, the buttercup hue will raise a smile. Slip them on with a denim skirt, this season’s knee-length culottes or simply your favourite pair of cropped jeans for style perfection.
