Mansur Gavriel Suede Mules, $395; Gucci Jacquard Slippers, $695; Jil Sander Velvet Slippers, $495
When Alessandro Michele released a backless, fur lined version of the ominous Gucci loafer for his debut collection, it unleashed a footwear frenzy. Naturally, with everything the house of Gucci creates these days, that shoe was at the top of every fashion insider’s shopping list. Fast forward a few seasons and the slide style- be it a loafer or sandal-has become a superstar in its own right. The slide is pushing fashion even further away from the heels only universe it once was as designers and savvy girls alike are pairing it with everything from jeans to evening wear. It serves as the perfect canvas on which to express your style. Go minimal with the alluring, brightly colored options from it-bag label Mansur Gavriel’s new shoe collection or perhaps try a walk on the maximalist side with this season’s whimsical, brocade covered offerings from Gucci. Carry the trend effortlessly into next season with fall’s most coveted fabric: velvet. Jill Sander’s square toe creation is uber-luxe, making it a great companion to all of your cold-weather finery. Either way you lean, just slip on and enjoy the comfort that comes with each step.
