Smoking slippers are no longer just for men. This classic style is now becoming available for the female wardrobe as luxurious new flats. Smoking slippers can easily be dressed up or down, and they offer the comfort of your favorite worn-in house shoes. Once you step into a pair, you may want to put your heels on hiatus.

Take a look at how these four fashion bloggers styled their smoking slippers.

1. Menswear-Inspired

Like Brittney of Beauty v. Brains, why not pair masculine shoes with a chic menswear-inspired ensemble? Brittney’s white tuxedo jacket and black trousers are correctly proportioned to flatter her figure, giving this outfit some ladylike elegance. Her accessories, including the red smoking slippers, also add femininity.

2. Cute and Comfortable

Carrie’s outfit is soft and airy, like the perfect pair of pajamas. Her cat-face slippers complement her laid-back look and add a touch of quirky personality to it. It’s easy to see that Carrie from WishWishWish feels great in this look.

3. Funky Dress

Jess’ patent leather slippers help to anchor her textured black minidress. Her pink blazer adds structure, and it also acts as a standout pop of color. This is a great look for a night out with friends, and the slippers will ensure happy feet. Her blog, Jess Loves Fred, is unfortunately no longer available online.

4. Leopard Print

Kelly’s outfit is fun, comfy, and generally easy to wear. The combination of a chambray top with cutout shoulders and pink skinny jeans is unexpected but successful. Here, the leopard-print slippers are a lovely final touch. You can see more of Kelly’s outfits at Sequins & Shadows.
