Fluffy sliders have been a relatively Marmite microtrend for the past two years, often spotted on the likes of Gigi Hadid, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian West, but not quite embraced by the entire fashion community. Well, folks, that's about to change. After increased acceptance among VIP street stylers last summer, fluffy sliders are set to be everywhere when the warmer weather of 2018 finally hits. From Miu Miu's incredibly elegant pearl-embellished sliders to Prada's more Birkenstock-inspired take on the trend, S/S 18 is the season you'll see feathers, faux fur and even terry towelling taking over slip-on flats. And of course, the high street isn't one to miss out. If you're still not convinced, allow our pick of the best fluffy sliders out there right now to lure your affections.
