You must've noticed that loafers massively came back into fashion. Not sure about you, but I keep seeing people wearing them every day. Mostly in the big, trends-driven cities. I am no exception, haha, and I also got myself a pair of those. First of all, I needed some mid-season shoes. Second, they are chunky and fit my body type well. Lastly, they are very comfy and fit my wardrobe perfectly.
In this article, I will show you a bunch of images and tips that I saved as my personal inspiration. I am curious if you agree with me and if you like this selection as well. Let's discuss it in the comment section. But first, I want to ask you the following:
So, before we jump into all the possible outfits and styling possibilities, let's look at how you can wear loafers per se.
Ways To Wear Loafers
|Barefoot||White Socks||Colorful Socks|
To me, these three possibilities serve as a base for any further styling possibilities. As mentioned, you can wear loafers barefoot, you can wear some white, black, or colorful socks, or even tights or stockings. Now, that we figured that out, we can start styling and experimenting.
1) Loafers & Jeans
This is probably the easiest and most comfortable way of wearing loafers. This would be my first answer to the 'How To Wear Loafers' question. I am not a fan of skinny jeans, therefore I would not recommend picking that style. The possibilities are endless here. You can wear loafers with straight jeans, with boyfriend jeans (sexy!), with high-waisted flared jeans, with cigarette jeans, and so on. You can also experiment with different colors of denim, of course. Let's look at some examples.
2) Classic Look
Now, that we looked at a variety of examples of wearing loafers with denim, let's proceed to my favorite outfit ideas. I called them 'classic' since they all include shirts, classic pants, or jackets. Originally, loafers represent classic shoes. Luckily, in 2021 we can wear them in a variety of combinations. Classic remains my fave, though.
You can observe a variety of possibilities here. Top-wise: an oversized white shirt, a white long-sleeve, a knit vest, an oversized jacket, a classic knit sweater, a trench coat, a sweatshirt. Combine with the following bottoms: classic pants of neutral colors. Add loafers, and voila!
3) A Skirt, Of Course
If you dig into Pinterest, you will find a bunch of images where loafers & mini-skirts are combined. And, indeed, it's an awesome way to style loafers! Let's look at some examples of how you can wear loafers with any skirt (mini, midi, or maxi!).
Which one of these do you like the most?
4) Other Styling Tips - Creepers, Leather, Accessories
And, of course, I could not leave this section unattended. Here I want to show you some unusual, yet cool, ways of styling loafers. This includes creepers, scarves, leather. Creepers are so unusual for us to wear, but I think they look so cool!
Loafers are definitely a massive trend nowadays, but a trend that fits my style, my taste, my wardrobe, and my budget. In many of these images, you can see the famous Prada loafers, however, you can find plenty of alternatives around mass-market (Asos, Zara) and more sustainable brands (recommended). I hope these images inspired you as much as they inspired me.
In the comments, do let me know which look you liked the most. And, I have one last question for you:
Thank you for your attention & till the next posts,
