WORDS BY FLORENCE TROTT
Chanel and Bottega Veneta perfectly captures the mood of this polished trend.
No one masters the ladylike loafer quite like Chanel, but since this is one of the trendiest styles on the market, there is options.
A little bit old-fashioned, a lot stylish, ladylike loafers give your day to day look a much-needed dose of decorum. After months in slippers, we’re ready to swap our shearling-lined booties for something more refined. Enter the grown-up loafer. Bottega Veneta’s Madame pumps are the perfect antidote to a tired lockdown wardrobe. A narrow, squared-off toe, heaps of gold hardware and a playful heel make them the go-to shoe for your big fashion comeback.
Loafers are the antithesis of streetwear, and their traditional take on glamour laughs in the face of minimalism. But despite the old-school associations, this season’s breed feels fresh and new. Just because they’re polished, doesn’t mean they can’t be casual. Ganni’s embellished style work just as well with jeans as they do a sassy mini. Look to Loewe, Khaite and Bottega Veneta for a contemporary take on the classic loafer. For those that like the finer things in life.
