TREND: Slip On Slip Off

Almost six years ago, the Northwestern University women's lacrosse team visited the White House causing an uproar. Pictures of the visit surfaced in various media outlets and people were shocked to find out that these girls wore flip flops the White House. It was a major fashion faux pas back then. However, times have changed and you can now wear slippers without committing a major fashion crime. Just take a look at this Fashionista.

Today's Fashionista is wearing a pair of worn out vintage suede slippers with a fringed gray dress, olive oversized button down and a tribal necklace. She used a black belt to cinch her dress at the waist and was carrying a black bag to pull everything together. Her style looks cool and effortless without looking sloppy at all. Her slippers came as a total surprise when everyone around me was wearing sandals and flip flops. Her laid back slippers added a fresh twist to the New York outfits I was seeing around me and it‘s the perfect balance between style and comfort.

Lucky for us, slippers are a huge trend this spring according to Savoir Flair. Various brands like Bottega Veneta, Topshop and even Zara have all caught on with this trend, making it accessible and affordable to us. Slip on a pair like these orange ones from Topshop for travelling for easy security checks or slip on this pair of zebra printed slippers from Zara for a cruise around town paired with cropped trousers for an effortless chic style just like this Fashionista.
