Trend Alert: Luxe Loafers

Trend alert: Luxe loafers

Elizabeth Olsen in ASOS Blazer

The classic ballet flat will never go out of style, but this year’s cold weather calls for a bit of a change. Winter loafers are versatile staples that work as well with slouchy boyfriend jeans as they do with opaque tights. This season, look for quirky details – like velvet slippers, cutesy animal motifs, punked-up spikes and pony-hair prints. Ditch the heels for a night out and instead embrace the comfort of a fancy flat. After all, if London’s most stylish girl, Alexa Chung loves them enough to wear them on the red carpet, they’re good enough for us.
