In the past, it was a fashion faux pas to wear your slippers outside the home, just like it was with your pyjamas too – but times have changed in 2024 with comfort at the forefront of our minds when getting dressed every day. 

Celebrities like Elsa Hosk and Bella Hadid have shown us that wearing your house shoes, slippers, Ugg boots or whatever you nickname them, outside the house is just as chic as the next ‘it’ sneaker. In fact, in 2022, A-listers and social media made the Platform Ugg Boot viral overnight with many adding to cart and rocking them anytime, anywhere.

So, whether you’re a slip-on, ankle boot, low cut or platform girlie and still wondering whether you’ll look too unhinged or daggy to wear them out; here’s your permission slip to do it and own it! Stuck on how to style them? Here’s some winter inspo guaranteed to exude comfort and style.

A slip-on style works best with a soft, flowy loungewear set you can vege in on the couch or head out to the café in without the need to change. Instead, just add layers like a trench coat, cross-body bag and sunglasses if you’re heading out.

For a casual coffee date or errands, swap your trackies for an equally as comfortable baggy jean. Whether they be high or low waist, a soft pair of loose, full-length jeans with pool perfectly over the top of your boots, staying in the cosy lane. Add snug sweaters or a relaxed bomber up top.
