There are few styles of shoes more classic than a pair of loafers. Traditionally a slip-on leather shoe shaped like a moccasin with a flat heel, the loafer has become an absolute wardrobe staple. However, the fact that the loafer has become so commonplace is also what makes it a bit, well… boring.
It’s for this reason that we’ve put our signature twist on the traditional loafer with a series of Fall Collection styles that step up this classic style. Here are a few of the not so-traditional loafers we’re rolling out this season.
It’s all about details when it comes to the “Jalen.” This embellished moccasin brings the loafer to the next level with studs, tassels, lacing, metal hardware, and stitching. Available in a series of animal prints as well as some basic colors, the Jalen looks great when paired with cargo pants and a sweater for a comfortable weekend look.
Typically smoking slippers are a bit simpler than the average loafer, but that is far from the case when it comes to the “Alvin.” This stylish yet comfortable slip-on shoe skips the basic color palette in favor of wild materials like the snake skin purple multi and the brahma hair snow leopard. Try pairing these flats with leggings, and a cardigan for an on-trend, feminine look.
The “Deanna” steps up the traditional loafer by adding a large wedge heel to give the shoe some welcomed lift. Perfect for the office; yet stylish and fun enough for a night out on the town, this British–inspired wedge is the best of both worlds. Try pairing with a pencil skirt and tucked in blouse for a fun yet professional office look.
Is it a loafer? Is it a boat shoe? Is it a moccasin? When it comes to the “Sebastian” the answer to all is simply “yes.” This fun style reworks the classic boat shoe by combining exotic leathers, vibrant colors, espadrille detail, and leather laces. With this combination of detailing, the loafer has never looked so cool. Try pairing this shoe with a striped tee and denim skirt for a fun, nautical look.
