The Smoking Slipper and Ladylike Loafers

Dressing 'for the boys' is a theme that has been running through the fashion scene for a good few seasons now. In footwear we have seen man-style lace-up brogues take center stage and the loafer trend is just so huge right now!

And the next step in the evolution of this trend in footwear is the emergence of the smoking slipper - so named as it was the style of footwear worn my men together with their silk pyjamas and smoking jackets in years gone by (total Hugh Hefner style!). This is definitely an item to watch for next Winter.
