If you’re looking for something a little lighter and more practical than the big boots that have been seen everywhere this season, and something heavier and bulkier than ballet flats, then loafers are what you need. In the new fall-winter 2022/2023 collections, you will find many fashionable models – from loafers on massive tractor soles to classic options for everyday wear.
Remember the patent Prada tractor platform loafers worn by all the it girls? Now this model has already acquired a cult status and is unlikely to go out of fashion, so you can safely buy it. Another model that fashionistas liked – Versace loafers, which street style stars often wore in a pair with white socks. Hailey Bieber, Alexa Chung, Kendall Jenner and Zoe Kravitz are fans of this neat school style and often choose loafers for their casual outings every day. But Kristen Stewart certainly outshone them all, swapping her smart shoes for a pair of Chanel loafers with white socks as soon as she stepped off the red carpet at the Oscars last month.
In the brand’s new collections, you can also find fresh interpretations of iconic flat shoes. Tod’s presents a model on a tractor sole with a massive buckle, which the brand offers to combine with knitted high socks, and Ferragamo – perfect loafers for all occasions – moderately strict and daring. Meanwhile, Coperni advises to invest in patent shoes, and Jill Sander to look at unusual pairs with a metal cape. If you are still used to choosing timeless classics, then you will find the most current models in the Miu Miu and Bottega Veneta collections.
All this proves that whether you invest in a classic loafer or a platform version, embellished or not, there are plenty of ways to style this trendy shoe. You can wear them with short pleated skirts, starched shirts and bombers, inspired by the preppy style, or you can combine them with a business pantsuit, blue jeans and knitwear, and even with floral dresses.
