Like Tom Ford’s red-velvet Orson loafers, the two slipper designs shown here can add flair to a pair of jeans or a trim tuxedo. The Alberto Moretti tassel loafers (available at Barneys New York, www.barneys.com) are made from dark-blue velvet and trimmed with colorful tartan piping and tassels. They are $695 per pair. The $795-per-pair Jimmy Choo Sloane slippers (www.jimmychoo.com) are made of sculpted leather, covered in calf hair, and stamped with a sheened brocade. Both slipper designs have hard leather soles, making them more street-ready than most.
