My need to teeter on heels on a daily basis has led to a truly unhealthy obsession. In fact, I have toes that rival a ballerina dancers’. Thankfully, I can give my poor feet a break with the season’s latest “it” shoe: the loafer. The 2011 variations pack some serious punch with high fashion style, versatility, and of course, comfort. Pair loafers with everything from trousers and shorts to flirty dresses and drapey silhouettes. Check out a few of my favourite loafers for spring:
1. Go for an androgynous look with a classic loafer in a menswear-inspired shape with a touch of hardware. Stuart Weitzman loafers ($345), available at Browns Shoes.
2. Look for fun prints and tassel details for a unique look. My pick are these animal print moccasins from Zara ($39.99).
3, 4. Bright coloured loafers are a great way to add a pop of colour to your ensemble. Dolce Vita Marcela ($64.95) and Jeffrey Campbell Dunsmore ($124.95), available at Solestruck.
5, 6. Unique features like perforations and textured materials create a look that is spring and summer friendly. Aldo Eda penny loafers ($80) and New Kid Laser Cut Loafers ($149), from Urban Outfitters.
