Banishing these slick slippers to formalwear is a thing of the past, tuxedo slippers are becoming a more versatile part of stylish men’s wardrobes.  And as per usual, like any decent sartorial find enjoyed by men, women are interpreting them for themselves, as well.

No matter your gender, the tuxedo slipper offers many style options for the current season and beyond.  Rendered in canvas, the slippers make the perfect casual summer shoe.  Left in the traditional velvet and they are a far more stylish alternative to a certain shearling boot in chilly months.  Finished in patent leather and they add a sophisticated edge to any ensemble.

Personally, I am aching for a pair of tuxedo slippers with the full-on old school treatment, maybe even my family crest embroidered on the toe in fine silk.  Whether I sport jeans or trousers with those bad boys, I will be one dapper dame.

My vintage sweet spot is tingling for these quirky needlepoint loafers.  They come in all kinds of kooky patterns and motifs.  And like their fancy velvet cousins, they can even be monogrammed.

Of course we cannot all break the bank over our newfound love of tuxedo slippers, so I have found a solution in Gap’s new offering of loafers for ladies–sorry fellas.  Available in so many lovely textures, colors and patterns, I may need more than just one pair.

Enjoy your new slippers–inside and out.

Much love and good shoes,
