With the holiday season in full swing, it’s time we started getting a bit comfortable. The temperature outside is dropping, while the fireplaces and radiators are getting cranked up inside. Holiday movies are starting to play on endless loop on all channels, gingerbread lattes and peppermint hot cocoas are readily available, and pumpkin pie, sweet mashed potatoes, buttery biscuits and hearty stews are just a Seamless click away. Yes, the stores and streets are filled with glittery dresses and sparkly stilettos, but when the snow starts to fall and Hugh Grant is on tv, why bother getting all dolled up?
Sometimes the best wardrobe solution is dressing down, and that cozy, comfy look starts from the feet up. When spending a night in, slippers are an essential part of feeling at home (after all, you don’t want to tire out your feet with all those long walks to and from the bathroom and kitchen). A solid investment that won’t cost you a pretty penny, there’s no reason not to have a cute pair of kicks for kicking back.
Below, I’ve dug up a few of the best pairs I’ve found on the web. Get inspired, and then get settled on the couch. Your feet will thank you.
