September brings in the comfortable cool air. That also means no more flip-flops and sandals for the next few months, at least for some of us. If you are in the midst of updating your fall wardrobe, I am going to offer you some help with your shoe shopping – for loafers and flats. If you kept up with the Fall fashion scene, you would’ve noticed suedes and velvets are the trends this season. Velvets especially goes a long way, as it adds more quality to your ensemble – royals and aristocrats love velvets in festive colors for a reason.
I, myself a huge fan of all things low and flat-heeled footwear, and happy to say have a decent collection of them. They are not just stylish and comfortable, they go well with anything. When I say flats, I include everything from ballet flats (like this pair!) to loafers and in-betweens. Loafers are perfect footwear for Fall weather. You can wear them with colorful dress socks or with just liners. Dress up or dress down, there is always a pair that fits your style.
As far as the loafer history goes it was Gucci who made loafers fashionable with their Gucci Horsebit Loafer. The classic Gucci loafer is mostly solid color genuine leather. Times have changed and now Gucci loafers come in all different shades – like the bright graphic jacquard pair on this story.
So, here are seven trendy loafers to consider. They range from Derek Lam’s $295 Piper loafer to The Row’s $1,195 Alys calf hair loafer.
