When it comes to finding stylish and comfortable footwear, there’s only one style you should be considering this year: loafers.
The flat shoes have been around for decades, yes – but they’ve been making a comeback in recent years with the introduction of chunky styles from designers like Prada, Gucci, Dior. In fact, there’s very few designers who haven’t spotted the trend and created their own iteration.
I’m absolutely sold on chunky footwear. Not only does it give you extra height, but I find it way more (sorry to use the F word, but…) flattering than thin-soled shoes.
I’m averse to wearing high heels, but I can get behind platform loafers because they’re actually comfy and surprisingly versatile.
Here are a few we think you will love, from & Other Stories, Russell & Bromley, Zara, H&M and more.
