The newest style staple in shoes is the loafer, an almost ballet flat/oxford hybrid. It bridges the gap between the lady-like and ultra-feminine bow front ballet flat with the menswear-inspired chunky oxford. The missing link has been found and these celebs try on a few different styles that compliment any outfit. A great neutral, a bold pattern or a bunch of hard rocking studs can add impact to a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt. These will be your newest get-up-and-go shoes.
Jessica Biel and KORS Michael Kors Danett Loafer
Jessica Biel is a style superstar and she has easily mastered the art of looking stylish and effortless while walking the streets of New York. The rough-and-tumble attitude of the Big Apple doesn’t faze this sweet starlet, whose shoes are vintage inspired and practical to be rushing through the busy city. If you can’t find your size in a thrift store to pick up a pair of these 70’s styled shoes, classic Americana brand KORS Michael Kors has got your back. The Danett Loafer is a timeless shape, with just enough modernity and ease to make these the perfect walk-about shoe.
“The Body” aka Elle Macpherson has spent her life donning the cover of Sports Illustrated and obtaining supermodel status. Now, she spends her time with her two sons in London, living the life of a normal mom. You can take the girl out of modeling, but you can’t take the modeling out of the girl. Her style hasn’t faltered as she transitions from in front of the lens to behind-the-scenes. Her bold spotted loafers could never say “soccer mom” and a patterned loafer never should. Sam Edelman has created the perfect loafer in the Alvin Loafer, with on-tend calf hair and leopard spots to keep your feet from getting bored.
Kelly Osbourne and Jeffrey Campbell Elegant Stud Loafer
A spiked loafer is probably the hardest style to pull off but rebel child Kelly Osbourne was made to wear these shoes. With a hint of ‘50’s inspiration and a whole lot of badass studs, these not-so-ordinary shoes are the perfect balance of lady-like and radical. What better company to make the perfect pair of studded loafers than Jeffrey Campbell? The Elegant Stud Loafer is just as its name suggests, elegant, with its fluid shape and mismatched studs. These aren’t for the sartorially shy; they definitely warrant a few double takes.
