If you thought loafers were meant for men only then let’s state the obvious—you are wrong! They may not have a feminine touch to them but wear them correctly with the right outfit and you will be cuteness personified. A great alternative to regular flats, loafers go with almost any and every clothing item. All you need is a comprehensive style guide to see you through. Don’t worry, we have that sorted out for you as well.
Go neutral: If it is a new trend you are trying, shed the perceived discomfort around it by opting for neutral coloured loafers. Black, brown and beige/grey are the classic ones to go for—these will allow you to mix and match with your staple outfits without having to go out of the way to match your shoes with your clothes. The Crocs Walu II Canvas W Khaki/Stucco Loafer should stand you in good stead.
Office metallica: Loafers may fall into the casual shoes category but since they are available in a number of versatile designs, the metallic ones blend right into the formal office environment. With a subtle sheen and classic silhouette, pair them with tailored suits or a formal shirt-pleated skirt combo and you will have aced the corporate attire etiquette.
Skinny walking: Your bottom separate should be such that it doesn’t overpower the slim, low-key appearance of the loafers. Skinny jeans are best suited to rock a casual loafer look. The more colourful the loafer, the better.
Printed and embellished: Take your loafer fashion up a notch by going for printed loafers with solid-colouredseparates. How about the Crocs Walu II Striped Floral Multi/Navy Loafer that is matched to a navy blue A-line dress? Team your tan blazer with a pair of leopard print loafers, or give people some serious fashion goals by pairing your lacy mini-dress with embellished/studded loafers. You will get heads turning for this one!
Channelling the androgynous spirit:While loafers can add oodles of points to your pretty quotient, they can also be used on days that you are feeling more androgynous than before. A simple tee and cropped pants is all you need. If you feel the entire look is too plain, go for tasselled loafers.
Retro rewind: Leather loafers should be your pick when you want to pull off a retro look. Slip these onto your feet while wearing a shirt dress or a flowy top cinched at the waist with a belt and worn over skinny leggings and you can crossover into a different era effortlessly. The Crocs Melbourne W Khaki/Cobblestone Loafer will suit this look just fine.
