Men’s lounge slippers. Well, that’s exactly how they look like. I’m talking about the “IT” shoes that’s so hard to ignore this season – loafers, or what others call as slip-ons. Clearly, this is another piece of man-thing that women seem to have whole-heartedly adopted.
Personally, I would like to stick to my feminine ballerina and pointy toe flats; they’re feminine and definitely a lot more flattering. But for those of you who are loving this trend, here are five stylish loafers you can grab from Free People.
Obviously, although I am not exactly crazy about this type of shoe (I seriously think they’re a tad too unflattering), I can’t help but look at the various choices that are available. The curiosity eventually led me to create this entry. Check out these five loafers and tell me which one you’d rather take home with you. To purchase, simply head over to Free People.
For those who love stripes and zebra prints, here’s a classic looking pair from Jeffrey Campbell. The Essie features a printed mohair upper, an inch thick heel, and also comes in Brown if you want something richer in color. It’s a pair that’s striking enough to get noticed, but subdued enough to blend in, can you appreciate?
Jeffrey Campbell Essie Loafers, $128
Retro loafers anyone? The Pierre features an upper made of tapestry fabric printed with a vintage looking design that will surely remind you of your grandmother’s drapes and curtains. I know it doesn’t exactly sound attractive but for those who love the 70s, these shoes are IT.
Bass Pierre Slip On, $70
Now although I am not exactly fond of loafers, if I had to wear a pair, it would be these glittery slip-ons from Sam Edleman. I think these are utterly glamorous and exquisite. An even more stunning Rose Gold is also available, one which I absolutely love…
Sam Edelman Metal Shimmer Loafers, $150
For those who like it a little exotic, this snake printed design from Dolce Vita is the perfect choice. The classic color keeps it versatile while the reptile print keeps it interesting. A perfect balance!
Dolce Vita Sicily Slip Ons, $84
If glam isn’t enough, how about something with a bit more edge to it? This creation from Antik Batik features metal discs all over for that rock n’ roll kind of style. Can you appreciate?
