I want to at least try on a pair, I have really tiny feet and it could look really weird with the chunkyness and all

Except for driving, loafers are just a complete no-no for me. In fact I can't say I've ever seen a pair of loafers in my entire life that look attractive on any female leg/ankle shape...not ever...

I have a few pairs of loafers i love them i wear myn with cigarette or skinny pants i feel they add a masculine touch. They kinda remind me of something a bit mod. I have more penny loafer types but i am looking for pair of slipper type ones simular to obes softgrey posted (so thanks for ideas )

I bought the JCrew Bass ones too, MulletProof. I didn't want to spend a lot on loafers until I knew I would wear them. And I have worn the Bass ones lots. They look great with cropped pants, or skirts with sox. Very classic.

I've been feeling loafers for about a year now - or the slipper incarnation of them - the kind that stubbs and wootton do. I love the whimsy of their embroidery. there is also a company in London that do something very similar whose name i can't remember. but unfortunately stubbs and wootton are hard to get in the UK and nothing on ebay came up that fit (and I wasn't going to shell out $300-400 for a new pair ). My favourite pair had little embroidered grenades on the toe box. I love little twists like that. I guess I should just go ahead and get a custom order since I'm still thinking about the pair that got away

So I'm glad that more high street brands are taking this loafer look on now. I never find them masculine. It's what you wear with it. I think having a loafer can anchor an outfit and are a great alternative to ballet flats.

Apparently loafers with heels are a trend right now according to the magazine I'm currently reading.

I love this picture of Sofia Coppola in 1992 wearing fushcia-pink loafers with an all black ensemble:

Whenever I think of loafers I think of Audrey .. and more recently .. Nancy Drew (the recent movie with Emma Roberts).

I LOVED every single piece of clothing wore by her character .. and she did the penny loafers like nobodys business ... now the looks may have looked a wee bit too retro, but still I love em ...

wow, ernst thank you for those old pics! i like loafers to begin with but they just made me look at them at a different way..i'm from the north east so I'm used to the preppy look but they look so glamorous there! i already have a more classic brown pair but i think i'm going to get a black pair for the fall too for work, the kind with more of a slipper-like shape like many of you posted here. they have some cute ones at topshop too:



i was debating between something like these loafers or a pair of black ballet flats since my old ones kicked the bucket last year but i think i'll go with these
