The Comfy Footwear Brand Meghan Markle Loves Designed Slippers Just for Her—How to Buy Them
They are so darn cute.
Meghan Markle is a big fan of house slippers. No, not those shabby terrycloth versions that probably come to mind, but sleek slippers crafted from luxurious fabrics (think satin and velvet) that are stylish enough to wear out of the house. In fact, she's been spotted several times sporting the casual-yet-cute footwear, even on the set of Suits. So in honor of the upcoming royal wedding (it's just one week away!), one of Meghan's favorite comfy shoe brands, Birdies, designed a new bridal slipper just for her—and luckily, royal fans (or anyone who appreciates ultra-cozy footwear) can snag a similar pair for themselves.
The slippers designed for the royal-to-be feature a pearl-embellished heel and luxe satin, but the company has also launched a slightly more understated, yet similar style, called the Songbird ($140; birdies.com), that's available for purchase. Choose from three color options—blush, fuchsia, and citrine—all made with velvet and adorned with a decorative pom-pom. Seven layers of cushion keep these slide-on slippers incredibly comfortable, even through hours of wedding prep, or some relaxed royal wedding-watching.
If you want to wear a pair of Meghan Markle-approved footwear as you watch the royal wedding unfold on the morning of May 19, you're going to want to order your own pair of Songbird slippers ASAP. Once you feel how cozy they are, don't be surprised if you decide to leave them on all weekend—and maybe even wear them to the office on Monday morning.
