The best women's loafers you can buy
- Loafers are a classic shoe style that can be paired with anything, from work trousers to floaty dresses and rompers.
- Our favorite is The Modern Loafer, an elegant, classic, slightly pointed style from the basics experts at Everlane.
Loafers are one of those rare quintessential shoe styles that can be worn with just about everything in your closet. Office-appropriate trousers? Check! Floral sundress? Check! Velour tracksuit? Well, maybe not, but you get the idea.
A bit more polished than regular flats, with a cool menswear spin, loafers add flair without distracting from the rest of your outfit. They're not boring, but they don't (usually) make a huge statement either, which means they're easy to style.
You'll want to get a lot of mileage out of your loafers, so they need to be comfortable to wear for long periods of time. It's worth spending a bit more money for a supple pair that won't give you those horrible back-of-the-heel blisters.Since many of the best loafers are priced below $200, we're not necessarily talking about a huge splurge, depending on your budget. The Modern Loafer, an elegant yet understated pair from Everlane that costs $168, is our favorite.
