Men’s Guide To Wearing Loafers

Mar 14, 2016 by Sarah (Day Styles)

Loafers can be considered one of the most stylish pairs of shoes of our time. They are elegant and sophisticated and are easily adaptable to any outfit you want to wear. Loafers generally have a minimalist design, but the way you style a loafer is extremely important! If you’re going to invest in a pair of loafers, you want to do them justice.

The Penny Loafer

The Penny Loafer is one of the most traditional styles of loafers you can find and is a safe bet if you need a pair of shoes that are minimalist and elegant. Since the 50s, these shoes have become an American staple and can now be found in many colors and textures to fit every man’s individual taste.

The Gucci Loafer

This is probably the most distinctive type of loafer you can purchase, with the metal clasp along the front. You do have to be careful when choosing the right Gucci loafer because they come in a rainbow of different hues. If you’re just starting your loafer collection, opt for colors that are neutral and easy to work with, such as browns, navy blues, and blacks.

The Tasseled Loafer

This type of loafer is a touch more playful thanks to the individual tassel on each shoe. It can be made in leather, patent leather, and even suede depending on your style and your outfit. The tasseled loafer is a dedication to beautiful European style and classic Italian menswear. You can pair these loafers with a well-fitted suit or a pair of slim chinos, and they work especially well if you purchase them in beige, brown, navy or khaki.
