Let’s start off with some fashion vocabulary, because one of the
common mistakes is to mix up loafers and moccasins.
Shoe Trend: Loafers!Loafers and moccasins count as slippers or slip-ons, but although they look pretty similar, there’s one thing that makes the difference: Loafers have flat heels and moccasins don’t!
Now that it’s clear what shoe we are actually talking about, let me tell you a bit about the revival of this shoe-classic.
Loafer’s been around for decades and became popular in the 1930s when students at the most prestige universities in the US started wearing them. Later on Gucci was one of the first to bring loafers to Europe, when the shoes traditionally had a leather bridge or two tassels in the front.
Loafers are perfect for a chic office look and due to new designs and variations of the classic loafer, featuring animal prints and glossy lacquer looks; this wardrobe staple as finally conquered every fashion-lovers heart.
Combine them with ripped boyfriend jeans for a casual look or high waisted skirt and blouse for an office look, the styling options are endless!
