How to Style Your Loafers This Spring

How to Style Your Loafers This Spring
Exactly how to style your new loafers this spring.

Dateless in both style and design, it comes as no surprise to hear that the loafer has yet again been dubbed spring’s shoe of the season. Celebrated for their versatility, functionality, and dash of sophistication, loafers are both practical and adaptable.

Whether you’re after a preppy addition to your Spring ensemble or simply looking to invest in a fresh set of footwear, loafers are a style of shoe we fashion enthusiasts would call a trans-seasonal staple.

Able to be worn year-round with almost any and every garment, loafers are a wardrobe essential in their own right. But what are the best ways to style them?

Here are our favourite combos!

With A Tailored Trouser

Nothing says office-bound like a sleek tailored trouser and statement pair of loafers. Whether the sun is out or there’s a forecast of rain, loafers are ideal for any commute to and from the office.

Selecting loafers with either silver or gold metal detailing will also add a luxe aesthetic to monochromatic or neutral-coloured work wear.

With A Pleated Skirt

One easy way to instantly look polished and put together is by pairing your loafers with a pleated skirt. Although this pairing may not sound that fashionable, a chunky loafer and a free-flowing skirt complement one another very nicely.

With both items acting as strong focal points on their own, it is crucial to ensure your choice of loafers and skirt enhance one another, rather than compete for attention.

With Hosiery

When worn together, hosiery and loafers create quite a statement. While sheer styles of hosiery add a high-end aesthetic to the classic shoe, monochromatic hosiery – particularly black – remains the preferred option for everyday wear.

If your current pair of loafers features bold embellishments, opting for colour-blocked styles of hosiery will help balance out the two items.

With A Maxi Dress

For a modern take on 2022’s uptown chic aesthetic, pair your thick-soled loafers with a soft floor-grazing maxi dress.

When correctly styled together, this duo has the power to add both personality and individuality to any look.

With A Flared Jean

Considering loafers are notorious for drawing attention to the lower half of our body, partnering the shoe with your go-to pair of flared jeans makes for styling success.

But which loafers should you go for? Here are our best picks.

Miu Miu Penny Loafer In Black - $1,570

Miu Miu reimagines the iconic loafer in a bolder version with oversized volumes and heel. In the '50s, loafers were part of school uniforms worn by prep school and college students in the U.S. Annoyed by having to wear a uniform, students started inserting a shiny penny in the slot of the leather band, giving rise to the name "Penny Loafers."

Miu Miu Slingback Leather Penny Loafer Mules - $1,640

In the 1950s, loafers were part of the uniform worn by American college students. Opposed to wearing a uniform, students started inserting a penny in the slot on the leather strap, which originated the name "penny loafer." This timeless footwear synonymous with tradition is reimagined by Miu Miu in the new collection in a bolder version with kitten heel.
