Loafers, oxford-styles and other tasselled shoes are becoming an increasingly popular style of shoe. Thanks in part to a surge in preppy and conservative styles of dressing. A common design detail of these shoes is the tassel. These days, an abundance of shoes feature tassel accents, incorporated in a range of designs.

These tasselled shoes take the loafer trend to the next level, quite literally! The high crepe heel adds to the appearance of a more sophisticated shoe. The navy suede is a material that you wouldn’t normally expect, but one that works quite well with the overall design. These would work great with a range of more polished outfits. Think shift dresses and cardigans or high waisted skirts and blazers.
