The humble loafer is becoming an increasingly popular choice of footwear. It probably has to do with it being the preferred choice of shoe for modern style icons and “It” girls such as Alexa Chung. When choosing a pair of loafers, look for slimmer styles with details such as tassels and fringing. The following are just a few preppy loafers you can find online.
1 Asos Madge Suede Loafers
These preppy loafers feature equally preppy embellishments. They have fringe and bow detailing at the toe and stitch detailing at the back of the heel. The pinkish stone colour of these shoes adds to the feminine aesthetic. Wear these with skinny jeans and a Breton striped top for a timeless look.
2 Topshop Moses Moccasin Stud Loafers
These loafers have a certain moccasin inspired design at the toe. They come in a natural tan colour and feature bow and fringing details at the toe. They also feature stud embellishments at the toe. Team these loafers with a Peter Pan collared blouse and high waisted shorts.
3 A.P.C. Tasselled Suede Moccasins
These A.P.C. loafers just exude preppiness. They come in a midnight blue colour and have a stacked wooden heel. They feature tassel and stitch detailing at the toe, and suede lace detailing at the sides. The dark blue colour is fairly neutral and would complement a range of outfits. Dress them up with a full skirt, or dress them down with a relaxed pair of pants.
4 Topshop Marcus off White Loafers
These shoes have a classic penny loafer design. The off white colour is also fresh for the summer months. They have a low front and stitching detail around the toe. White shoes can sometimes be hard to style, so start off with a neutral colour palette and gradually add colour as desired.
5 Carvela Libel Tassel Front Loafers
Price: $99.00 at asos.com
These red loafers will brighten up your wardrobe. They are made from a vibrant red leather and feature a wooden heel. They have a tassel at the front and stitch detailing around the sides. These would look great paired with a classic combination of a white shirt and denim A-line skirt.
6 DV by Dolce Vita Marcela Tassel Front Loafer
These loafers appear to have a slimmer shaped body. This may be attributed to the almond shaped toe. These preppy loafers have a low rubber heel, brogue-style detailing, and tassel embellishment at the front. The taupe suede leather would work well with this season’s pastel colour palette.
7 Rachel Antonoff for Bass Kissing Hearts Flat
The Rachel Antonoff for Bass range has only recently been released, but it is selling out quite quickly! These two-tone loafers have a cute interlocking heart cut out on the top of the shoe. They also have decorative white stitching around the toe and a thick heel. Pair these preppy loafers with a full skirted dress and navy blazer for a schoolgirl inspired look.
Some people love the look of the loafer, while others don’t. For the most part, I am a fan of this type of shoe. Which, if any, of these preppy loafers did you like best?
