Loafers: The Must-Have Shoe for This Fall

Loafers have come a long way.

What used to be only a traditional leisure shoe for men or statement shoe worn by prep students in the 1950’s, has now been remixed and updated with new colors, textures and styles for a more fashionable twist – making the classic flat slip-on shoe a comfortable way to still be fashion forward while spicing up your casual look.  They are also a great transitional shoe option for fall and can be worn with a variety of looks from preppy-chic to uber-feminine and dainty ensembles.

While sometimes you can’t escape a fierce high-heeled shoe, it’s definitely nice to have a chic alternative that still has the same cool factor.  Take a slice out of fall with these super chic and updated takes on the classic loafer.
