Fall Fashion Trends: The Smoking Slipper

July 24, 2012 • Blahnik Tonic, Fashion Blog, Trends


Known as the “more sophisticated cousin of the ballet flat,” the smoking slipper is a comfortable and cute new trend for fall. Compared to the dainty ballet flat, the smoking slipper retains a more masculine appearance, but it takes a feminine twist as it becomes the new alternative to basic flats.

This slip-on style shoe is perfect for ankle-cropped pants and works well with playful skirts and dresses. The fun only continues with this trend when it comes to choosing the  ideal shoe. The smoking slipper comes in many variations such as bold colored shoes, animal print, studded or glittered slippers and cap toe designs to name a few. 


Next time you feel like going for a more androgynous chic look while still retaining your femininity, do it with these smoking slippers. They’re trendy, comfortable and make a statement. These shoes are sure to outdo any simple loafer a man might be wearing.
