Not Your Grandma's Loafers


I have something to admit. I've been lusting over (cringe) loafers. Before you write me off as someone with bad taste in footwear, I'd like to point out that pretty, feminine, candy-colored loafers are the ones catching my eye. Loafers like these:

1. Bianca sailor girl suede shoes, $49.90 ♥ 2. Isaac Mizrahi silver driving moccasins, $20.99 ♥ 3. Charlotte Russe heart loafers, $18.99 ♥ 4. Hot pink vintage loafers, $28.00

Of course, I can't help but adore the more expensive blue suede ones, but they sadly aren't available in my size. However, the cheep Charlotte Russe ones are awful cute. I'm loving the chains with the little hearts!

So, what do you think? Can loafers be a "fashion do" after all?

Teen Vogue seems to think so:

Note to self: Pair loafers with white tights and a sweetly whimsical ensemble. Cute preppy boy optional.

Hehe, I feel fashion savvy. I may need to place an order at Charlotte Russe ASAP, because I've been house-bound with a nasty virus and am feeling woefully in need of something cheer-inducing.

I totally think loafers are a fashion do. They're as classic as a ballet flat with more of a prep edge. Doing them in a bright patent color or metallic gives them a bit of trendiness.

So no, I don't think you have bad footwear fashion sense.

Of course, I rarely meet a shoe I don't like.

I have little red suade loafers I love, sadly they are falling apart. However, loafers can definitely be cute.

I remember when I was little,I would laugh at my dad because he wore loafers. I thought they had a funny shape, but as I grew up I started to like their shape and style. And now, they've actually become popular!
Fashion is about recycling..this is why we keep seeing the return of 80s style clothes, ballet flats, etc.
