Loafers: Thumbs up or down?

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Have you ever seen the film Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn? She wore classic black loafers with cigarette pants and a black turtleneck. She looked super stylish with a hint of tomboy-ish charm. I mostly stick to my ballerina flats but this autumn I swapped them for a classic pair of brown loafers and every time I wear them, I think of Audrey's impeccable style. My favourite take on them is rolled-up pants with an oversized sweater or layers! Lovelies, are you wearing loafers this autumn? Would you? xo

P.S: Also, ushanka and tomboy style.

I love the look of loafers. I think they're kind of edgy. I've got a great guest blogger post today, by the way :) xo

I haven't worn loafers in forever, although I've been thinking about getting a pair lately... I can't say I love them in general, but the right style of loafer with the right outfit can be super cute. :-)
