Simone Rocha

Simple socks with elevated details…

These have become our go-to for accessorizing a relaxed outfit. We love pairing them with a monochromatic look and letting the pink speak for itself. The little ribbons on the back and the signature Rocha pearl attachment speak volumes without being fussy. ($171, Farfetch)

Soft slippers with a hint of glitz…

We can’t get enough of these eye-catching slippers. Wear them around the house, or take the no-slip rubber sole for a spin on your next errands run. They come in three different colors and all have a gold lobster “mum” brooch that can be removed and worn wherever you’d like. It goes without saying that these would make the cutest gift for the mom in your life, too. ($44, Wolf & Badger)

A shoe that does it all…

You’ve probably never seen a shoe like this. This multifunctional shoe can turn into a sandal, mule, and sneaker just by peeling off the knit upper. They come in three colors and are made with a plant-based sole that customers say feels great after all day wear. Use code SKIMMJOI15 for 15% off. ($98, Amazon)

Warm slippers made from recycled wool…

These are the real MVPs of house slippers. They’re super padded and are made from recycled merino wool, so you can feel good about your environmental impact and keep your feet warm at the same time. They’ve also got natural rubber soles so you can dash out to the mailbox in them. Psst...get $10 off a $100 regular-priced item with code SKIMM923, valid from September 7 through September 21. ($39+, Allbirds

We’ve got these in two colors, and we’re begging for more. They’re soft, fluffy, and don’t fall down thanks to the elastic stretch. They’re durable and easy to clean, too, so you can wear them every day (we know you’ll want to). ($20, Alo Yoga

Everyday slip-ons made with the environment in mind…

These are 100% vegan, from the natural rubber sole to the organic cotton upper, and take eco-responsibility a step further than most — for each pair purchased, the brand plants two trees in the Brazilian rainforest. They come in seven different colors and (hallelujah) are available in half sizes so you can find your perfect fit. ($79, Cariuma)

Reebok sneakers if you need a new year-round go-to…

You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of Reeboks. They’ve got that vintage flair with a midsole that’ll absorb impact — so if you’re running around all day, you won’t feel a thing — and the low-cut design gives your ankles full freedom and mobility. ($79.99, DSW)
