All The Reasons Why Loafers Are Cool Again
Chic and versatile, the loafer has shed its bookish association in recent years, and our latest pair are the ones to watch. Initially designed for menswear collections, loafers are now a staple for everyone and lend an easy instant polish – whatever season you’re styling for. If, like us, you’re eager to bring a new finish to your looks after what feels like a lifetime of casual dressing but not ready to re-embrace heels, it’s time to slip into the loafer. This is a shoe that feels right for now.
In a similar vein to a trusty tailored blazer or that oversized shirt we love to shrug on, the loafer can pull together any outfit and will become a go-to signature. As we transition into the autumnal months, we’re embracing a chunkier silhouette for a modern feel, complete with a rounded toe and fringe detailing. Style with our latest split hem jeans, a shirt, and a vest knit for an effortless look that won’t feel out of place in elevated settings. Think back-to-work mode but with a cool, fresh edge.
If you’re looking to style your loafers after-hours, team them with a short leather skirt and a white T-shirt for high-low dressing at its most contemporary. And for finishing touches? Chunky gold jewellery. Alternatively, if you’re looking to restyle summer dresses for the autumnal months, just add loafers with chunky marl socks and a leather jacket for a foolproof transeasonal look.
The secret to styling loafers is simple: combine them with simple staples and chic layers when the temperature drops for all-agenda outfits. It’s true; loafers really are cool again.
