Light shoes-sleepers — incredibly comfortable, which visually resembles slippers. Today, in the review, we will consider the features and advantages of this summer shoe, as well as what to wear and effectively combine sleepers and how to make fashionable images that are relevant for all times.
Features of sleepers
Initially, sleepers were conceived and used as home shoes. They looked very impressive: they were made of velvet, had a silk lining and were often decorated with gold embroidery or other rich decor. As you have already understood, such shoes were only affordable for representatives of the aristocracy.
Later, the slippers “migrated” to the category of street shoes. Modern sleepers look much more modest, but at the same time they have become very popular summer shoes for both men and women of different ages.
The sleepers do not have zippers, zippers and lacing, they are easy to remove and put on, and are comfortable to wear during the day. Sleepers are characterized by:
- semi-closed shape,
- a small toe on the rise,
- with a neat “tongue”,
- thin sole or wedge heel;
- some models have a small heel.
Sleepers can also differ in the upper material: textile, natural or artificial leather, nubuck or suede.
Advantages of sleepers
Practical materials allow you to comfortably wear the sleepers during the day, even in hot weather. These shoes will perfectly fit into your wardrobe if you prefer outdoor activities, city walks, as well as the convenience and functionality of shoes.
Designers offer a variety of models — both universal ones that can become part of a seasonal capsule wardrobe, and original sleepers with prints, tassels, fringes and other decorative elements that will become the basis of a bright outfit.
A recommendation from stylists: sleepers are worn with underclothes or on bare feet, but not with socks.
Shoes-sleepers + jeans
The combination of sleepers and basic jeans is the perfect option for a casual summer look. You can match this tandem with a top or a light shirt, add a leather belt and decorate the image with a bright accessory — a straw hat, a designer bag or large sunglasses.
Sleepers + light-colored trousers
Sleepers and light trousers are the formula for a beautiful feminine summer look. Sleepers are perfectly combined with narrowed models of skinny trousers or cropped trousers. You can complete the image with the following items of clothing:
- a blouse with ruffles and ruffles;
- original top + oversized jacket or jacket;
- basic T-shirt;
- a shirt in light colors.
If your outfit is made entirely in a light color scheme, then a bright accent can be made on the sleepers-choose bright prints, ornaments and decorative elements that will decorate your favorite summer shoes.
Sleepers + Dress
Comfortable, as well as practical sleepers can be successfully worn in a duet with a dress or skirt. For a spectacular image, mini or medium-length dresses are suitable. To create a light and airy image, you can choose lace models of sleepers, or textile sleepers made of pleasant, light textile materials. To create a more extravagant image, leather or velvet textures are suitable.
