Thank for God (and Phoebe Philo and Allessandro Michele) comfortable shoes are back on the map and I mean proper shoes too not just sneakers. I mean sneakers are totally fine too but a girl needs some variety, doesn’t she?
The thing is that fashion is rarely about practicality but when it is it goes with a big swung as people want to be comfortable when they’re commuting, picking up the kid or standing in the queue in the Post Office. And well, who doesn’t want to be comfortable?
But the other thing is most of the workplaces don’t go along with sneakers. It’s not serious enough, so for years you had just a few choices: ballerina shoes or pumps. So again, many thanks for loafers, slippers, babouches. Ok, granny chic shoes too.
Ladies with high fashion sense are wearing them like crazy. The offerings are quite big, everybody can find some nice pair on budget and with sky high prices too. I found my favorites in the lower range and I love them, they’re almost as comfy as sneakers and the quality is really good too without paying a bigger fortune. 😉
Speaking of high prices, Gucci’s classic loafers and slippers probably the hottest shoes right now so don’t be surprised when you see a bunch of them on the following pictures. So beware, I warned you. 🙂
As most of these girls I like wearing them with skinnes and vintage like jeans but they’re good for suit pants as well. Also, I think the key is to pull them off is balancing between feminine and masculine. And this is true for these shoes as well what leads us to the key of Gucci’s mega success. Ok, I bet they’re the best quality too but it couldn’t be so successful without this sensitive but super incisive mix of manly and womanly.
Do you like loafers too?
