We’re counting down the days until we can lose the loungewear and get dressed up to go out again – but for those of you who have become accustomed to comfortable dressing, you’ll be glad to know that one of the biggest shoe trends for spring 2021 is the trusty loafer.

Comfortable, easy to style and as chic as they come, loafers have been an important part of a capsule wardrobe ever since Gucci brought them onto our radars in 2014.

Prada, Balenciaga and Simone Rocha are just some of the designers who are favouring the style again this season, this time adding a chunky sole for a 2021 update.

Are loafers in style in 2021?

Loafers are one of spring’s biggest shoe trends this year, with Prada’s brushed leather loafers leading the way. If you’re on more of a tight budget, read our guide to Prada loafers dupes that are available on the high street now.

Chunky soles are the key detail this season, toughening up the loafer for spring.

As always, we encourage you to embrace trends with longevity, favouring pieces you’ll keep forever and those that will always give you confidence over fleeting trends you’ll only wear for a season.
