Aside from the obvious comfort factor, velvet slippers are so effortlessly chic. They instantly elevate a simple pair of jeans and a sweater. Or, pair them with wool trousers and a jacket for work. Velvet slippers even look great with a casual skirt for a busy day of holiday shopping.
Interestingly, the style is actually borrowed from menswear. According to He Spoke Style, “Velvet slippers first became a prominent style for the fashionable man the way that so many menswear pieces rise in popularity – by celebrity endorsement. In this case from Prince Albert, Prince Consort of the UK in the late 1800s.”
This season, designers have taken the velvet “smoking slipper” idea even further, offering charming velvet loafers and flats. Above are a few of my top picks in a variety of both styles and price points.
