The following article is about different ways you can wear loafers. It’s always fun to wear menswear-inspired clothing and footwear. I tell you honestly, this is my favorite type of footwear and I do like to wear it in different ways. So, how to wear it and with what? Loafers became popular in 1960’s thanks to Gucci fashion house. There are known several types of loafers, including tassel loafers, penny loafers, and embellished designs.
1. A shiny silver pair of loafers is ideal for underlining your individuality. You can try this footwear with a smart-casual suit, or keep things relaxed and ladylike by adding a sleeveless blush dress with Peter Pan collar and pleated skirt. If this combination looks too much girlish to you, then you are free to add a denim shirt to cover your shoulders.
Most of these shoes are made of qualitative leather, but you can find the ones made of suede. Women’s loafers can hardly differ from men’s styles, yet there are wedge designs, low heel or mid-heel versions. As for the wardrobe, I recommend wearing this footwear with business style clothes. But I do see women who prefer to wear loafers with jeans, creating casual, ethnic or boho-inspired looks. I personally like to wear loafers on bare feet, but you can try it with tights, golf socks or gaiters. My personal advice: do not overdo your look, otherwise, you risk to look old-fashioned. I do love to see women in simple tees paired with blue jeans and classic loafers. Anyway, I do recommend to take a close-up look at some of my favorite outfit ideas you can recreate this year.
