It’s nice when, every now and then, insanely uncomfortable sky high heels aren’t the only thing that’s trendy. Years back it was the ballet flat; last season, it was the smoking slipper; and now, it looks as though throwback loafers (yes, as in penny loafers minus the penny) are coming back with a major way.
Now of course, loafers are an old classic. But like many trends this season, spring’s best loafers have been updated in cool, attention-grabbing ways. Rather than brown leather with penny holders, the loafers you should be shopping feature colorblocking, bright neon details and thick, chunky soles. You can even go all out in a pair of metallic loafers!
