Some shoes are obviously sexy. Teetering works of art, that flaunt the foot and transform the wearer to goddess. And then there are flat, closed toe loafers! Staid, comfortable, practical and lacking any distinct fabulousness. The loafer portrays nostalgic roots to preppy, college graduate looks, but then catapults itself into a class of its own when you think about the rise of the Gucci loafers, in the day. The loafer has a spotless reputation. It is a proven mandatory statement that never really fades in and out of fashion. It remains.

ShoeSales loves a preppy loafer and always includes a style in our seasonal line up. The style that ticks the boxes for me is PENNY. The stonewashed leathers give a rustic look to the loafer and can even dispel flavours of Boheme. All leather linings, socks and outsoles makes this particular loafer a dream to wear. So, if you have just lashed out and bought a fabulous pair of flat loafers (after spotting them everywhere), but not sure which outfit to pair with, let us tell you loafers can go with almost any look. Check out our ShoeSales inspirations…..

As spring / summer comes in, you should bring your shorts, shirts, polo tees, aviators and of course loafers to the front of your wardrobe.  Super model Alessandra Ambrosio owns this look with cut off summer denims and optional pet poodle!

And  if you’re not a girl with shorts then you can go for a white shirt, denim jeans, sunglasses and an over sized bag just like Mallika Sherawat has donned in this image.

An understated stylish and chic look can easily be pulled off with the classic, flat, closed toe loafer. Our exclusive style PENNY, made by our premium brand Raspini, is definitely a style to put on your wish-list. The lighter stonewashed shades of blue and taupe are perfect for those spring days ahead and well, a black loafer in your wardrobe is an essential staple. Basically, the laofer looks great with anything from jeans to trouser-suit, from skirts to dresses, blazers to leather jackets, as they adapt to all these outfits and give a bit of masculine strength and that ‘je ne sais quoi‘ or effortless ‘I don’t care‘ attitude to the girl wearing them.

Cheers to loafin’,

I have been shoe-obsessed for the greater part of my life! From stick figures with elaborately illustrated heels as a child, to my first part-time job in a shoe boutique, to a Cinderella tale of marrying into a 'shoe' family! I was a destined cobbler. The last 20 years have been dedicated to footwear design. I blend my knowledge of colour, material and form to create silhouettes that evoke glamour and elegance. I draw every sketch, select materials and finalise each construction detail that produces all shoes. I do this with passion - appealing to conservative, eclectic and adventurous personalities and tastes. My philosophy “give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world!” Google Plus
