If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of this season, it’s loafers! They make for a fashionably chic alternative to the already popular ballet flats and can dress up (or down) any outfit.
They are a classic shoe and can be easily worn with shorts, skirts, pants and dresses.
Loafers aren’t newcomers to the world of fashion. The iconic Penny Loafer, popularized after the late Michael Jackson made them a part of his signature style, have been around for decades. Some of you may have even owned a pair when you were younger.
Designers like Steve Madden, Jimmy Choo and Gucci are just some of the big names contributing to the loafer craze. The loafers today aren’t like our grandparents’: They come in an assortment of colors and styles, including fuchsia, aqua and studded designs.
I often like to pair mines with skinny jeans and a simple white v-neck. I also like to wear a solid colored pair, like Steve Madden’s black pony hair loafers, with a sheer, flowy top and leggings for an uptown chic look.
