Loafers are an emerging force in women’s footwear, thanks to designers showcasing these preppy pairs’ versatility during last year’s Spring/Summer presentations. Last season, the casual favorite saw extensive style exposure as models, celebrities and street style savants showed off their pairs in gender-bending blazer-and-trouser looks or flirty day dresses.
This summer, the trend’s momentum is showing no signs of abating. In fact, loafers are getting even better as designers roll out chicer updates of the classy shoes. Nicholas Kirkwood lands on top of our list as the brand designed a pair of loafers featuring the cap toe trend. These suede and glitter loafers, arriving in a stunning electric blue shade, easily steal attention for its summer-perfect toe cap detail.
While loafers are beloved for their androgynous appeal, the multicolored glitter and wavy black leather trims dressed up the pair, making them viable for chic after work rendezvous as well. The pair also afforded a dash of elevation with its structural one-inch heel. From the vivid burst of color to its sensational detailing, we’re counting on these suede and glitter loafers to pass as summer’s stylish beater shoes. Whether it’s a pair of jeans or shorts that you’re itching to sport, we reckon Nicholas Kirkwood’s stunning pair has to be the one to wear. These are available at Net-a-Porter for $895.
