How to Wear Loafers for Women
One of the current fashion trends are loafers, a type of shoe that has always been worn by men and that is only recently being created for women too. With these shoes it is possible to create a casual, urban and modern look, stomping across the line that separates masculinity and femininity. In this OneHowTo article, we'll explain how to wear loafers if you're a woman so you can keep up with the latest trends and look fabulously chic.
The easiest way to wear them is to pair loafers with regular jeans or skinny jeans, which will highlight your feminine curves and give you a sexy, cool look. Loafers are a type of men's shoes; therefore, pairing them with highly feminine clothes will create an interesting contrast whilst also highlighting the best bits of your body. This creates a contemporary, casual and on-trend image.
A perfect office look would be to pair them with some skinny jeans and a blazer, which will add a professional touch. You could dress them down with a pair of dark jeans or, if you prefer, a pair of more formal trousers.
Of course, the secret of this combination is that the trousers end above the ankle, making a style statement with your in-vogue shoes.
Another more style-savvy option is to wear a more formal top, e.g. a shirt or elegant blouse and a blazer and wearing shorts underneath. Your legs will add a sexy and feminine touch to your look, a real head-turning outfit. In winter, choose flesh-coloured or transparent tights for the desired effect.
As you can see in both images, a maxi handbag goes perfectly. Above all, the shorts should not be too short. However, make sure they're not longer than knee-high, so that you can play on that male - female contrast and stand out in the crowd.
Another idea that is very fashionable these days is to wear a skirt with knee-high socks, reaching either just below or above the knee. This style plays tribute to the schoolgirl look and is gaining more popularity. To avoid a look that is too obvious, pair this look with loafers or brogues which will add an innocent air to your clothing. You'll look fabulous!
Now for a look that is bang-on trend: pair two highly fashionable items together, a cape and loafers. When we talk about cloaks, we refer to the old type ones that our grandmothers used. This old-fashioned style has come back in fashion, but with a more modern air. It is a garment that is a hybrid between coat and poncho, perfect for any occasion.
A great way to wear this piece of clothing is with skinny jeans and loafers. This will create a very modern and current look. If you are attending a party at night, opt for more dressed-up trousers or, as we mentioned earlier, some shorts, for a stylish sexy look.
Combine loafers with a short dress to highlight the contrast between masculinity and femininity. In these cases, keep legs bare or wear some sheer tights. Another option is to wear socks that are colourful, for a eighties, fun style.
The ideal accessory for this style is, as you see in the picture, a wide-brimmed hat. It will give you a very sophisticated and modern air, creating a strong, confident and sexy image. Read these tips from OneHowTo on how to choose a woman's hat.
Another good way of wearing loafers for women is to pair them with a season garment: oversized jersey. With this combination you can again play with the feminine and masculine aspects, creating a very sensual appeal. To show your womanly body, choose something tight on top and, to keep the look pretty, carry a cute handbag and wear accessories like earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc.
