Gone are the days when flip-flops were mere germ-ferrying agents: This season, thong sandals have been (literally) elevated from flimsy rubber street-kissers to cushiony flatforms. Those opposed to sticking anything in their toes will be pleased with the selection of minimalist slip-on platforms that slightly resemble the iconic Steve Madden chunky slides we last saw at an early aughts middle school dance. 

Fun House Slippers

The house dress came to rescue our wardrobes from an all-sweatpants trap in 2020 and now, our feet are getting the same dressed-up, lazy-day treatment. House slippers can be worn in or outside of the house — or even by the pool — and are available in an array of poppy hues and fluffy materials.
