Slippers – Your Winter Style Staple
Even though this week it was 72 degrees in November, we know winter is on the way. Long, cold, dark winter. And I don’t think I’m being a fortune teller if I predict that we all will be spending more time at home this winter, than in winters past. Less going out, more staying in. Dark at 5pm. Cold and snowy. Germs floating everywhere. That’s what we can look forward to. While this scenario could sound dreadful, I’m going to re-frame it to sound cozy. A time for hibernation perhaps. So, if there’s a place in your wardrobe to invest, to really get the return on a cost per wear basis – it’s your house clothes and even more specifically your house slippers.
Because even me, an infamous shoe addict (yes, honey, I do need to pack 3 pairs of black shoes for a weekend away – they all serve a different purpose). I tend to not change my house slippers with every outfit. It’s more of a slippers for a season or two and then they get old and grungy (and smelly too if I’m being honest – barefoot + sweat = stink) so I replace them. Usually with the exact same style – because A. I’m not that exciting and B. my slippers are more function than fashion. But also because in the past I’ve only really worn them at night or on the weekend. But now, I’m wearing them most days, all day long. So, it’s time to shake things up a bit. The moral of the story is, I’m on the hunt for a new pair of slippers.
