Effortlessly chic slippers can become your party-ready darlings 

Slippers are the It-shoes. You know – those backless, effortless-to-put-on, stylish ones that are often called mules, slip-on sandals or Moroccan slippers. Not those cheap floppy ones hidden somewhere you can’t find in your bedroom. This summer, these chosen slippers are designed to shine. 

Charlotte Olympia’s Kitty Flats have been seen on numerous celebrities and fashion bloggers, but the Kitty Slippers are new this season. Released with the brand’s Brazil-inspired spring/summer 2017 fashion show (called Let’s Go Bananas), the slipper version in six vibrant summery colours will be your new velvet dream.

The luxurious Mia Mule by Alberta Ferretti has added its “summer version”, which uses denim on some of the pairs. Handcrafted with embroidery details, beadings, silken floral patterns and exquisite colour tints, you shouldn’t expect them to come cheap – but it’s still worth investing in a pair.

Presenting French couture for more than 90 years, Rochas embodies femininity and romantic grace. The open-toed mules in its recent collection are supremely rich and make a strong fashion statement, such as the peachy-satin pair with gold-and-silver crystal, the silvery patent-leather pair with stud embellishments, or the lavish gold-tone pair that’s fully sequined.

Fur is usually for reserved winter, but a little bit makes for an extraordinary style statement for a summer evening date or a dinner party. The rose-nude Miu Miu sandals bring together fur and satin, heeled at a manageable height, while the turquoise feather pair with a crystal-embellished mid-heel is another luxe choice. Make sure your nails are done up nicely, too.

The Princetown slippers have become an icon of Gucci since their launch in 2015, covering a wide range of styles including jacquard, brocade, fur-lined, lace, glitter and more. This new satin pair is particularly special. In addition to a mirrored heel, the decorative crystal bow is removable with an elastic band, so switching between embellished and basic is that easy.
