If you miss dressing up, you’re not alone. With nowhere to go these days, opportunities to showcase personal style are slim—but what about experimenting with something you can wear around the house? We’re talking socks and slippers. Yes, you read that correctly. So many of our favorite brands make comfy options that are cute enough to show off on Zoom. Go ahead, try it—all the inspiration you need is right here.
Gone are the days when foam footwear exclusively referred to poolside flip-flops. These cocktail-inspired slides (appropriately named Spritz) are practically begging to be worn with tie-dyed socks, proving to all the naysayers that summer is not canceled.
There’s nothing chicer than an all-black look. You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of Birkenstocks with an extra-cozy shearling lining. Grab glitter polka dot socks for an added flair.
Comfortable shoes are usually lacking in the style department, but we’ve found the exception. Everlane’s top-rated sandals slip on with ease. Pair them with rhubarb-hued socks.
We’re loving these kooky feathered flats to add glamour to your everyday routine. Couple them with Ganni’s color-blocked socks, and you’ve got yourself a look special enough for any Zoom call.
Who says waffles are just for breakfast? Hay’s citrus-colored slippers will make you feel as if you’re walking on a cloud. Just add Technicolor socks and you’ll light up any room you stroll into, even if you’re the only one there.
Just because you have to get out of bed for virtual meetings doesn’t mean your feet have to. Conducting business in these (cruelty-free!) Peruvian-made alpaca slippers is the next best thing to staying under the covers all day. For added shine, combine them with eye-grabbing metallic socks.
Maybe you were saving your silk socks for a special time or occasion, but guess what: That time is now, and the occasion is padding around your apartment recipe testing and crafting. If you’re trying to keep them clean for brighter days ahead, add a pair of velvet slippers, because…why not?
As the king of decoupage, it’s no surprise that John Derian’s handcrafted slipper collab looks fit for royalty. Couple with striped socks and a side of scones, and you might as well be vacationing in Buckingham Palace.
Amazon’s budget-friendly option has a memory foam base for extra comfort. When paired with sheer checkered socks, you’ll be ready to walk right into a ’70s-style music video.
