This week: Lately I have noticed a lot of celebrities—like Kate Moss, my idol—wear loafers and I really want to try this look. I am not fussy when it comes to colors or anything, but I do have a budget! Thanks so much! –Marie
Hi Marie. It’s true, loafers are having a moment right now, which means you are lucky because there are tons of great options on the market! Let’s start with Nine West’s Succeed Loafers ($32), which come in a chic, red faux-alligator. We also like Wanted’s Summer Stud Loafers ($30), thanks in part to their studs and in part to the fact that you can choose from two different hues. A little further up the price ladder, we have J Crew’s Lexington Suede Penny Loafers ($138), which we just adore. They come in four different shades and have a really chic, really smart feel. Last, but certainly not least, we have Jeffrey Campbell’s Spiked Loafers ($158), which have an edgy twist that balances out the sophisticated silhouette. Happy shopping!
