I Know What It's Like to Walk on a Cloud, Thanks to These Banana Republic Slippers
Last year, in an attempt to motivate myself through the quarantine, I started getting dressed every day as if I had somewhere to go. I threw on my favourite knit sweaters and denim jeans, or structured dresses, and even wore regular shoes around the house as part of the exercise.
This lasted a few months, but after a prolonged stay-at-home order followed by the arrival of winter, comfort became the priority. I swapped my fitted dresses for slouchier alternatives, and started looking for a pair of slippers that had as much style as the office-ready mules I wore, while keeping my feet snug. It took weeks to find an option that effortlessly blends warmth and style, but when I stumbled upon these the Sherpa Indoor Slippers ($54, originally $68) from Banana Republic, I knew they'd become my most worn shoes.
The sherpa fabric feels fuzzy on the skin, while the rubber soles are sturdy and supportive. I also find the silhouette very fashionable and designed to be breathable, so I don't have to worry about my feet overheating. The neutral colour makes them extremely versatile, which is why I've been wearing them with everything: a sweatsuit, jeans and a t-shirt, and a flowy dress. They are the definition of winter chic, and add a polished touch to any ensemble.
With the cushy feel and comfortable fit, the slippers are ideal for all-day wear, and pair well with semi-thick socks should you need a bit more warmth. They are some of my best finds, and there's a reason my sister tried to steal them from me. If you're on the market, I've rounded up a few other options from Banana Republic so that you know what it's like to walk on a cloud.
