What We Want to Wear: 11.11.2020



ABOVE LEFT: I love my old Ugg scuffs, so much so that the lining at the heel is practically non-existent. I’m eyeing a replacement with another Ugg—this Dakota Slipper  ($100, Nordstrom). Instead of the usual suspects in brown and beige, though, I’d go for this pretty “wildberry” suede. BELOW RIGHT: Family-operated German company Haflinger is known for its ultra-comfy, durable footwear, as well as its graphic styles. This cute Coffee Slipper ($85.95, Nordstrom) conforms to the shape of your foot the more you wear it. Boiled wool makes them feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter. RIGHT: Subu is a short version of the Japanese expression “sutto haku butsu,” which means slip-on shoes or shoes you can put on in the blink of an eye. Subu Indoor/Outdoor Slippers ($55, MoMA) have durable soles with an outer nylon shell that’s stain- and water-resistant, thanks to a special Teflon coating. The soft-cushioned insoles are filled with polyester down. Think of them as a warm down jacket for your feet.

ABOVE: We especially like this lumber jacket pattern (it’s also available in red and black and six other colors) on Birkenstock’s Zermatt Genuine Shearling Lined slipper ($99.95, Nordstrom). It looks cozy enough for lounging around the house or venturing outside it. Why? It’s shaped like a foot, has arch support, a warm lining and a rubber sole.  BELOW: These Acorn Moc slippers ($44.95, Zappos) will hug your feet in faux fur uppers and a faux shearling lining. Like this new generation of slippers, this one has a rubber sole for traction.


LEFT: Stay snug—and feel fashionable—in a long sweater like this army green Raya Wool & Mohair Blend Cardigan ($430, Nordstrom). RIGHT: Why not wear hot pink in the middle of winter? Slip on Boden’s ribbed Rosslyn Fluffy Cardigan ($130, Nordstrom) with tortoiseshell buttons to chase away cold-weather blues.



LEFT: Inside/outside wearability applies to this Phoebe Floral Jacquard slide ($120, Birdies), which combines the softness of a slipper with the look of a designer flat. Comfort comes courtesy of quilted satin, memory foam, arch and heel support and a no-slip rubber sole. RIGHT: The fashion forward may just want to splurge on these camo-print shearling, clog-like Sleek Slippers ($180, Anthropologie) for themselves or as a gift for a trend-loving friend, who will be tempted to wear them day and night, inside and out.



LEFT: Cozy? Not so much. But this Mission Lurex Sequin Cardigan from Maje Paris ($340, Bloomingdales) sparkles with style (and the look of a much more expensive Chanel jacket). RIGHT: A knit cardigan/ jacket from BA&SH (the brand is named for the first two letters of the founders’ names—Barbara and Sharon), this Brut. Sweater ($395, Bloomingdale’s) in navy with light-catching round gold buttons projects a relaxed military vibe.


LEFT: Everlane delivers on basics like this ribbed Cropped Cardigan ($110), made with plush, warm alpaca that’s supposed to resist pilling.
Also available in ivory, tan and black. RIGHT: Mango’s wool-blend Chunky Knit Cardigan ($99) looks aces with jeans, but I could also see throwing it over a tailored pajama top for an impromptu Zoom.


LEFT: Sorel gets into the slipper business with this Go Mail Run Slide ($75, Nordstrom), a pouf of fluffy faux fur grounded by a rubber sole—just the thing for short dog walks. RIGHT:Mattress manufacturer Tempur-Pedic weighs into the slipper market with Vallery ($77.95, Zappos). Its faux fur collar and fleece lining will keep your tootsies toasty.


LEFT: Cable sweaters like Madewell’s Pointelle Cardigan ($110) check the right boxes for chunky but not too heavy thanks to airy eyelet details. Besides this mossy green, it’s also available in ivory and lilac. RIGHT: A bomber jacket-like Textured Knit Cardigan (Mango, $99) with long puffed sleeves, side pockets and front zipper to wear now through early spring.

  1. Yep. That army green cardigan — had a sweater coat like that ages ago and wore it to death. Oh, and the hot pink Uggs…

    Love all the coziness! Especially like the Japanese slippers and the long army green cardigan. Just right for those days when the longest walk is to the mail box.
