Ironic or iconic?
Loafers are having a moment.
You can put a penny in the top. Dads and grandpas everywhere have sported them forever. Boarding schools encourage them.
And we are unexpectedly loving them... and loving them with sweatpants too.
Why do loafers just feel right at this moment when we're wearing so many knits and comfy materials for lounging and keeping warm?
Though they are preppy and luxe, loafers are also easygoing. They are solid and stable givers of a crisp and jaunty step that will play well with the other pieces in your closet. The sleek shoes immediately add classic refinement to any outfit which is quite welcome right now as our work from home loungewear quite often ends up being worn outside the home.
Read on for some lovely loafer looks that will inspire pairing this wardrobe classic with denim shorts, socks, sweatpants, and basically everything.
Here are some shoppable options, whether you splurge or save:
