A loungewear set is not complete without a pair of the best slippers. Whether you’re working from home or just relaxing on the sofa, top-quality slippers are a welcoming self-care treat that also feels justifiable, because a cozy pair will keep you warm and stop you from putting the heating on too early.

Brands such as UGG and The White Company have really upped the ante with their slipper offerings this year, with a plethora of styles to choose from both brands. With designs to suit all budgets and levels of coziness, we’ve rounded up our favorite styles that will have you swapping your shoes for slippers the moment you step foot in the house and are all guaranteed to work seamlessly with your wardrobe (whether you're wearing your best leggings for lounging around the house, or your best jeans for hosting).

How we chose the best slippers

There are many elements to a top-quality slipper to consider and we took all of them into account when curating our edit of the best slippers this season. Practicality is paramount, obviously, but we've also considered style and how proudly you might wear your pair both inside (and occasionally outside) the house. 

Whilst slipper boots are a go-to for winter, fluffy sliders have become a firm favorite on Instagram and they’re perfect for keeping your feet cool and comfy during the warmer months too. In our edit, you will find everything from spa-like mules for slipping in post-shower, to indoor-outdoor sliders to keep your outfit looking smart.

Finally, warmth and comfort were also key factors that influenced our choices—after all, if a slipper isn't warm and cozy to wear, what's the point?

Stories behind each product

Whilst the designs are modern, Toast pieces are timeless. Each slipper has an origin story so you know exactly where and how it’s made. For example, their v-front style are made in a small factory in Nepal that positively follows fair-trade principles. The wool is laid out to dry on the roof of the factory with a view of the Himalayan mountain range behind. The wool is then carded, teased apart, and felted by hand! Lots of them can be adjusted and they also stock a few house names like Birkenstock.

What type of slipper should I get?

Mules: Mules have no backs to them so are easy to slip on and off without having to bend down. A good option if your feet get too hot in full-on slippers but may not be as sturdy as some.

Boots: Boot slippers are perfect for when temperatures drop as they come up around mid-calf so will keep you seriously toasty. Look for rubber soles if you want them to keep their shape over time.

Pumps: Like ballet shoes but fluffier, these can be more secure than a mule but are often lighter so may not be as warm in the depths of winter.

Sliders: A sandal-slipper hybrid these are backless and have an open toe to allow more breathability. They have one or two straps across the top of the foot. A good all-year-round option that's bang on-trend.
