House shoes are really where it’s at right now. Not only are they one of the defining pieces of 2020, but they’re officially a major trend for 2021, as evidenced by the S/S 21 collections. One of the standout footwear trends that is set to be huge next year, house shoes are intended to be worn at home, but also just about everywhere. Whether you’re pairing fuzzy slides with a shirt dress like we saw at Balenciaga or wearing logo slippers with ankle socks and a pretty slip dress like we saw at Coach, the styling ideas are honestly endless.

So, which cool house shoes are worthy of adding to your shopping cart? I have plenty that I’m eyeing and ahead I’m highlighting all of my favorite styles. From cloud-like fluffy slippers to fashion insider-approved clogs (yes, you read that right), these are the cozy shoes you won’t want to change out of anytime soon.

Equal parts understated and cool, pool slides are the shoe trend that always read as effortlessly chic. You can still snap up the original designs from brands like Nike, but designers including Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga also have their designer versions.
