Loafer, the menswear inspired shoes have been in the limelight for quite some time now. Also called the new IT shoe of 2013, these androgynous boyish flat pumps have transformed from ramp-wear to street-wear.
Studded, sequined, leather or suede, you can pick them up in an array of colours, prints and materials.
This season give those pumps and open toes a break and go all out with heeled or flat loafers with chic splashed all over. Team these with a pair of high waisted pants or shorts. They are trendy and yet so comfortable. Invest in a pair now.
Styles you can opt for
The classic kind: First made popular in the 30s, these classic shoes have skyrocketed in popularity ever since. The Prince Albert Loafers come in a variety of colours and prints. We are totally in love with royal blue ones with gold embroidery. A sequined pair in bottle green look great with dresses.
Kiltie loafers: These with little frills on the flap look best in leather or suede. Wear them with a pair of straight pants and fold the helms a little.
Animal prints: Like your clothes, shoes also look trendy in these prints. And loafers in animal skin are all the rage now. Pair with a maxi dress for best results.
Go for bright hues: A pair of yellow or hot pink loafers can totally change your look. Keep the attire simple if you are going for these. They look great with denim shorts.
If you are going clubbing: And if you plan to wear these to a party, then you have to be little careful while selecting your style. A pair with studs and sequins look stylist with dresses, sheer blouses or linen shirts. The heeled kind with leather detailing can work wonders with pants or full length skirts.
