Slides have been around for many seasons, but they are definitely having their time now. From the humble pool slide, redefined in luxe fabrics, prints and embellishments to its sleeker counterpart, there’s a slide for everywhere, no swimming necessary.
There’s no need to confine the pool slide to the, well, pool. They can look chic and effortless for any daytime occasion.

For an easy daytime look, these Gucci slides work just as well in the city, as they do poolside and give an edge to a classic, casual, monochrome outfit. Don’t be afraid to experiment with a pool slide, it works with so many styles from dresses to pants to jeans and gives an unexpected edge to a look without straying into too “young” territory.
