Loafing is such a great word. It sounds exactly like what it is just lounging around comfortably and lazily. Unfortunately, even on the dreariest of days, most of us can’t afford to stay in and loaf around all day. There are errands to run, kids to pick up from school, trips to make. But for days when you feel like being comfy and cozy even when you absolutely must be on the go, the loafer is the perfect shoe for you. These low-key slip-ons will make your feet feel relaxed and laid-back, even if the rest of you has places to be.
Rachel Zoe Lily Loafer
Actress Ashley Greene knows the importance of being comfortable when she’s on the move. Whenever she’s promoting one of the wildly successful films in the Twilight films, she has to travel all over the world. Transatlantic flights are not known for being relaxing experiences, but Ashley makes an effort to be as relaxed as possible in her soft t-shirt and casual cardigan. Her bright red loafers add a pop of color and visual interest to an unfussy outfit, but they’re easy to slip off on a long flight or dash across the airport in when it’s time to make her connection. Stylist turned designer Rachel Zoe knows how important it is for her highly visible clients to look chic even when they’re traveling great distances. Her Merlot Velvet Lily Loafer is a flat that will treat your feet well throughout your daily travels without sacrificing a shred of style.

Even the simplest outfit can be livened up with a sexy animal print. Elle MacPherson personifies chic, even first thing in the morning when she drops her son off at school. Her skinny jeans and tailored men’s shirt are casually elegant when paired with a cropped leather jacket to ward off the chilly weather. But this outfit packs a great punch with the whimsical addition of black and white animal print loafers. You can take your cue from her and liven up your look with a slip-on animal print loafer from Charles Philip Shanghai. The Sheila Loafer in Bright Blue Leopard Satin ups the stakes even farther with a vivid splash of color.

Wear these with skinny black pants and a metallic top for dinner out and wow everyone with your sparkle and shine.
