The piece: Tory Burch Candide Smoking Slipper
The price: $325
Why we want it: Confession time: our secret to making it through holiday cocktail party season isn't a killer pair of heels — it's a chic set of flats. And there is no more festive — or glamorous — type of flat than a smoking slipper. Enter this velvet pair by Tory Burch, whose deep eggplant hue is only made more holiday-ready thanks to its sparkling embellishment. We're excited to wear these with everything from a slick pair of matchstick pants to a fit-and-flare party dress. Not only will you be completely comfortable, but in these shoes, you'll undoubtedly be the center of attention.
