Microtrend: The Statement Loafer.

By: Jen Shoop

The statement loafers currently trending are bringing me back to my early teens, when I wore a chunky lug sole black loafer from Steve Madden in rather literal homage to Alicia Silverstone. I’m loving this encore. I don’t know that I have the fashion gutsiness to try them with socks comme les street style starlets (e.g., Julie Sargent Ferrerri above) but I am into the idea of pairing them with a bare ankle and my demi-bootcut flares and my Agolde Pinch Waists.

If you want to go investment, I have been seeing these Chanels (Find No 3 below) and these Pradas all over Instagram. Something about the chunky hardware feels suddenly new? You can get the look for less with these (Find No 4 below) or these Madewells (find No 5 below). If you are liking the vibe but a bit intimidated, trying a pair in a neutral color softens the vibe considerably. Along those lines, I am loving this pair from Dolce Vita (Find No 1 below; $100 and incredibly similar to this chic pair from Tory Burch), this $109 pair with the interesting cord trim, and these TBs (Find No 2 below).

  1. I love a good loafer and am so pleased that they’re back with a vengeance this year! In a similar vein, I snagged a pair of Reformation t-strap maryjanes with a lug sole from Net-a-Porter — my take on the trend! I have an extremely thin yet slouchy pair of white socks from France that I’ve seldom worn … I think they could look cool with this silhouette, similar to the woman in the top image. We shall see!

  2. I adore the loafer in the picture of the girl with the jeans and the tan blazer that is shown twice. Did you link those? Sorry if I missed it!
