If you’re looking to update your look from the ubiquitous ballerina flat, and aren’t too excited about the casual aesthetic of Tom’s slip-ons or laceless oxfords, then this season’s loafer might be just the thing. Velvet, patent, studded and animal-print are haute for fall and at affordably chic prices. Pair with this season’s bright cropped slacks, cigarette pants, and skinny jeans with a neutral top. Or rock it in reverse: a neutral camel or black pant with a pop of color on top.
