The Stylish Flats That Are Making a Comeback This Fall

Though I’ll still drool over the highest of heels in pretty store window displays and online, the practical me, she wants ALL of the flats. And thankfully, most fashion girls agree: flats are where it’s at; thus the popularity of Valentino Rockstud Flats and Miu Miu’s uber cool ballerina-like flats. And this fall season, one of the biggest trends in cool girl flats: the classic loafer. Believe it or not, the loafer is going to be taking the fall streets by storm. Just search Who What Wear to find dozens of fashion’s IT girls wearing the Gucci loafer. I actually first fell in love with loafers when I studied a semester abroad at Cambridge. British girls wear loafers with such effortless style, and right then and there, I knew I had to have a pair of my own. Since then, I’ve had a few pairs of J.Crew loafers, but some of the newer styles are so chic, I’m having a hard time convincing myself I don’t need an updated pair this fall. The touch of masculinity and nod to a school girl uniform gives the shoe some edge, but the season’s twist on the classic is giving them a bit of sex appeal, especially when worn in funky and unexpected ways.

The best part about a pair of loafers is that their timeless style only gets better with age. A good pair of loafers should be made of soft leather that will break in beautifully. I’m crushing hard on this luxe velvet pair of Gianvito Rossi loafers, though this affordable Zara version and adorable J.Crew pair are both looking pretty good too.

    Girl I am SO with you! Any style that doesn’t hurt my feet is ok with me! Loafers are the best for school and work.

    OK, so I love, love, love flats but I can’t decide how I feel about this mule/loafers trend. Some are super cute but $600 for the Gucci loafer?! Can’t say I’m sure I love it….

      Trust me, $600 is WAY out of my budget, but there are definitely some cute, affordable options that I totally dig. 😉
