Chanel's New Loafers Have Become an Obsession of Mine

Loafers haven't been around for a while. Sure, they kind of bubble up as one of those wardrobe basics we will always feel passionate about, but they haven't really been in the fashion spotlight for a while. Back in 2015, it was Gucci's Horsebit backless loafers that became the ubiquitous shoes of the season thanks to Alessandro Michele's new reign at the fashion house. Then after that initial buzz, which did admittedly last a couple of years (and the style still stands up today as a modern classic), everything went a little quiet on the loafer front. Now, in 2021, they're everywhere again, and this time nearly every designer you can think of is taking part. Well, dear readers, I think I've found the ultimate designer loafers to beat all others: the Chanel loafers. A model wearing loafer...

I Just Found 23 Pairs of High-Street Loafers That Look So Expensive

There's something immensely satisfying about a classic item of clothing being declared a "trend." Whether it's a beige trench coat or timeless shoe, clearly, these sorts of items don't need the additional PR. (They get plenty of attention without it, dahling.) However, just like an overlooked silver-screen actor who gets their long-overdue Oscar, it's nice to take a moment to appreciate those wardrobe heroes that have survived the decades. This year? It's the humble loafer's turn to enjoy the spotlight. With a history that stretches back to 1926—it was reportedly first created as a household shoe for King George VI—the loafer might've started out as a menswear staple, but fast-forward 95 years and it's a shoe that has been well and truly embraced by womenswear designers. Prized for its ...

Styling Your Loafers With Socks Is the Newest Trend, and I'm All For It

There's something so nostalgic about pairing your leather loafers with a pair of socks. While '90s shoe trends are still very much relevant, I'm most excited about seeing the latest revival: pairing cozy socks and my favorite leather shoes - loafers. While everyone has been styling their Dr. Martens with high socks, allow me to turn your attention to loafers. Whether it's styling a pair of striped socks with gorgeous vintage Chanel loafers that are dreamy as heck or opting to style plain leather ones with white high socks, the options are endless. I particularly love that I can now wear my go-to fall shoes well into winter and spring. Emma Chamberlain loves this trend, and I love how she styled hers with a turtleneck and nostalgic beaded necklace, too. Ahead, have a look at some pairin...

Tyler, the Creator Wearing This Checkered Sweater With Yellow Loafers Is *Chef's Kiss*

IMO, Tyler, the Creator pretty much won 2020 with his latest outfit. While most of us *ahem, myself included* have been wearing cozy sweatsuits and haven't been as motivated to get dressed up while running errands, Tyler was a ray of sunshine wearing this colorful outfit. The rapper was seen getting groceries in Los Angeles wearing a checkered zip-up sweater that had pops of yellow, green, brown, and blue. To add to the preppy feel, the sweater also featured a collar. He styled the colorblock piece with brown cuffed trousers and a white face mask. In my eyes, the star piece was Tyler's bright yellow loafers, which he paired with long white socks. His outfit was *chef's kiss*, not that I'm that surprised, since he's always flexing his style game on and off the red carpet. Tyler's inspir...

These Loafers Are the Most-Sought After Item for Autumn

The iconic Prada triangle logo is an image known the world over. From saffiano leather totes to mini nylon cross-body bags, brand's emblem is an instantly-recognisable symbol of designer luxury. In recent years, the triangle logo moved beyond simply handbags and is now appearing across clothing, hair accessories and hats. This season, it also features prominently across the label's footwear collection, with Prada's new logo branded loafers gaining an almost cult status among the fashion set.Created in both black patent leather as well as more pared-back tones, Prada's loafers have captured the attention of Pernille Teisbeak, Gosia Boy and more, even appearing on the feet of a few Paris Fashion Week attendees earlier this month. Although loafers are quite a timeless classic, Prada's rece...

All the Chunky Boots and Loafers We Are Obsessed With Right Now

When it comes to footwear this year, the general rule is the chunkier, the better. In summer, many of us lived in Teva sandals and chunky two-strap sandals, and for winter, our soles are about to get even thicker. Last year, track-sole boots were the coolest things to have on your feet, thanks to designers like Bottega Veneta and The Row, who gave the Chelsea boot a tougher makeover with thick, sturdy soles. These stomping boots are destined to be even more popular this year, as designers like Prada, Bottega Veneta, and Dior have continued to iterate on these practical chunky boots, and they have also been the dominant footwear trend across contemporary and high-street brands this autumn/winter.There are still dozens of chunky ankle boots and Chelsea boot styles around. However, designe...

5 Totally Different Ways to Style Gucci's Classic Loafers

Gucci loafers have been quite the mainstay in the world of fashion for the past few decades. What's more, they've gained even more popularity over the last handful of years, as Creative Director Alessandro Michele has worked to put Gucci back on the map for a new generation. The classic leather flats have continued to be sold in black and brown leather, but the lineup has expanded tenfold, as colors, prints, new materials, and backless silhouettes have quickly emerged. The best part of a pair of splurge-worthy Gucci loafers? They can be styled with absolutely everything. Whether you are a proponent of casual denim, want a low-profile heel to wear with a party dress, or are looking to make an edgier outfit a little more tailored, Gucci loafers are a constant go-to for the fashion set.
