Three months ago, if you had asked me what the top 10 items on my Wishlist were I can guarantee that a pair of slippers was not one of them. In fact, not even close. Instead, I may have rattled on about a pair of work heels I was hanging to try on, or a new piece of jewellery I had been eyeing off.
But in light of recent events, slippers have suddenly gone from around #34 on my ‘items I need to buy before winter list’ to sitting comfortably at #1. How quickly things can change.
For those of us who have relocated to a home office, there’s no denying that even for the fashion-obsessed, work-outfit priorities have shifted drastically. Comfort has truly become king, which is why I have to eat my words and admit that spending a little extra on slippers doesn’t exactly seem like such a silly idea now.
If you’re suddenly in the same boat and are stuck on where to start, there’s no need to stress. I’ve put my shopping skills to good use to bring you the comfiest, but equally chic slippers to shop right now.
