black-loafersAs Spring slowly settles in and the sun graces us bit by bit with its beams, we slowly ditch our ankle boots & winter shoes for more summer’ish soles. And as every season has it… 2013 Spring will too bring us a new fashion trend. The Loafers, ladies! From the catwalk to the streets and to the posh feet of celebs these androgynous boy’ish flat pumps are making us forget the hot heels and channel our Tom-boys personas. As always my lovelies, I have to be honest with you… long long time ago I hated loafers. I thought of them as the ugliest shoes ever, who made my legs seem skinnier and made me look more shapeless. Truth is they’re a bit tricky and one can easily fall into the granny look with them (though if we look at the Olsens, that look is apparently quite trendy too, so… there you go). Or Taylor Swift for that matter. Sorry… but I find her style so boring for her age, and in her case, loafers are not helping at all. They’re too dull just like her outfit. So I guess the key is to find a balance: if you’re rocking an edgy or uber sophisticated look OPT for loafers as they will tone it down. Or keep it simple but add those details that make all the difference. olsens-loaferstaylor-swift-loafersFLYNET - Taylor Swift And Ed Sheeran Arrive At The Recording Studio In Santa Monicacoloured-loafers-fashion-trendloafers-2013-springcool-loafersToday I admit it: Loafers seduced me! Yes they are a bit masculine but NOW I love that, as I love the way they can easily blend and mix with so many other looks. Besides they are so comfortable, and contrary to belief (my past one that is) they look amazing with feminine clothes: dresses & skirts with or without tights. It gives you that boho-chic-innocent vibe. For a professional smart look, loafers are the best with trousers/skirts/dresses and a blazer on top. Keep them black for a basic smart look or go for printed or colored ones for a professional sophisticated style. I love the animal print ones and the bright colored ones. For a feminine look stay nude (ha! with your feet that is). Nude shoes elongate legs and make you look fab. To get that rich, sophisticated style don’t forget a cool bag, shades, a scarf and jewellery.

And speaking of masculine… you can get your boyfriend/husband a pair, as they’re the new Shoe Trend for Men as well. You’ll look like those super bohemian-posh couples who dress alike and look gorgeous :) So I can see why Loafers are the new IT Shoe of 2013 Spring. We’re all probably so bored with the flat pumps and just sought a reinvented version of them. So why not our grannies’ shoes :) Joking! Oh and another thing… they come in heels too, but I’ll tell you all about that in another post. Today I’m feeling comfy and these loafers seems just the right thing!

So let’s get some fashion inspiration from some truly great street looks. So many ways to rock the loafers look this spring… d1bb9afc70f796446b1feda4d9930c8cloafers-fashion-trendChloe Sevigny out and about, New York, America - 19 Mar 2010alexa-chung-loafersgreen-loafers-llokChristian Louboutin loafers… ah… still the best out there! Christian Louboutin Loafers - Leopard-GoldChristian Louboutin Loafers Glitz Nappa Black SilverChristian Louboutin Loafers

    I just ordered the Prada driving moccasin in beige. What types of looks from above would you recommend?

      great choice Tatiana! when it comes to loafers, cause they have a bit of an androgynous look, I would recommend anything statement style: bright colors, studded, funky prints, patent etc. I just feel that they’d really stand out and give a bit of sophistication with anything you choose to wear: be it simple jeans (or especially jeans/cutoffs) or dresses, tapered trousers, skirts (office style). That way you can keep your outfit simple and have fun with your shoes. Of course a nude pair (such as the one you got) is a tremendous investment – it will go with anything and give you the elongated legs effect. I bet you look fantastic in them! xxx

    Looks as if the ladies will have a great spring. These loafers not only look good, I’m sure they’re a good deal more comfy to walk in than high heels.

    I have always loved loafers, they are just so comfortable. I walk tons so it’s not always realistic to be wearing heels. Now I’m loving all the studded ones!
