Slides have taken over the fashion world by storm. Yes, you’ve read that well. The same inconspicuous pair you’ve been wearing to finish errands or while lounging at the beach. All this time you’ve been a trendsetter without even realizing it.
Now that you are aware of this fact, you can invest in a quality pair at Freedom Moses and start planning your new outfits.
If you are still not sure how to proceed, mostly because you’ve only worn them with sweatpants and bathing suits, we have compiled a list of chic ways to style them.
1. Casual Chic
Let’s start with something familiar and simple like everyday wear. You probably have most of these items in your wardrobe, so creating an outfit should be fairly easy. Choose your best pair of jeans, your favorite T-shirt, add the slides, and voila — your look is complete.
This is a fairly basic look you can wear to a lunch date or while doing some shopping. It’s a simple way to look chic without putting that much effort into the outfit. You can always add some jewelry if you want to spice it up a bit.
2. Urban Streetwear
For all of you who are unfamiliar with the term, streetwear came into being during the noughties in California.
While it may seem complex, since it has many subgenres, it is mostly characterized by outfits that do not follow any strict rules. It revolves around casual clothing like sweatpants and oversized T-shirts with logos.
Now, how do we make urban streetwear style chic? It is quite simple really. Find your favorite sweatpants, preferably ones in a neutral color, add a graphic T-shirt, a leather jacket, and tie the whole look with a pair of yellow slides.
Nothing is chicer than a cute preppy outfit. This particular style has been extremely popular for decades and for a valid reason.
The focus here is on structured silhouettes, plaid prints, and embroidery galore. Creating a preppy look should be fairly easy because the rules are pretty straightforward.
Start with a basic top in solid colors, add a pair of plaid pants or a mini skirt, and you’re good to go.
This kind of look is normally paired off with loafers or high heels, but it can sometimes appear too old-fashioned. To create a balance between modern and preppy, you can wear slides instead for an ultimate chic look.
Your eyes are not deceiving you; you can create a pretty decent semi-formal look with something as laidback as slides.
Don’t overthink it! Pick your most extravagant suit or dress, preferably a brocade one with some print, and then tone down the look with a pair of understated shoes. We promise that your outfit will turn heads and for a very good reason.
You can dress up like pro while going for shopping with your friends. I am presenting you with the combination that I love the most.
You can wear the light-colored top with a black skirt and add up black plain slide shoes too. Take a black leather handbag with you to look more presentable.
Slides are open-toed and backless which makes them a great choice as your summer footwear, but you need to take care of your feet.
Make sure your heels are not dry and rough as well as your nails. Roughly rubbed nail paints and dry heel is enough to ruin your summer look.
Brands like Freedom Moses have a wide range of pieces that come in different colors and finishes. If a formal look is what you’re going for you might want to pick a pair that is matte and comes in a neutral color.
