The Low Down on Ladylike Loafers

Don’t forget to enter our Corral cowboy boots giveaway!

I think we can all agree that there has been a transition from cutesy clothing to more ladylike wear this season…and what is more ladylike than a sophisticated loafer heel? Vogue has a most tasty mention of them in their September issue!  As far as styling goes,  I’m thinking that heeled loafers would look awfully killer with a classic sheath dress, pencil skirt or trousers. I would love to hear what you think about this “trend” lovelies!

If I still worked in a traditional office setting, you can bet I would be rockin’ the heck outta this look. I still might. The dude, my toddler for those of you who aren’t familiar,  is my real boss now, but I bet he’d like to see mama all dolled up. HA!

This sheath would be a fantastic  partner for the pretties above. Here in Florida, we’re still experiencing wicked hot temps, but as soon as it does cool down, a cardy would finish this look to perfection!

And since we’re on the subject of shoes…get ready to be seriously jealous. Rosebud Network member Holly in Heels has one amazing hubs. He created a shoe closet for her. If you’re prepared to drool, click here!

    I’ve got a pair of Tods — heels, tassels — from more than five years ago. Keep meaning to give them to the thrift store because they just don’t look right on me! You’re not a 6.5 by any chance, are you?

    I love my Cole Haan loafer heels… I picked them up before they were a “trencd” just because they made me feel a little professor-ish and who doesn’t occasionally want to feel smarter than they are? 🙂

    I swear I had that exact pair of Nine West loafers in 1998 when I started working … hmm, does that make me old or ahead of the curve? Unclear.

    i have an unhealthy love affair with non-heeled loafers! especially since i live in a country with cobbled stones and uneven pavements….loafers have saved me from many unexpected falls that have plagued my friends who trot around in heels! hehe

    I love those black nine west ones! I am in no convincing here!

    I cannot believe she A. has such beautiful shoes, B. has such an amazingly smart husband and C. has a closet to convert into a ” shoe closet!”

  6. Stephanie says

    Obsessed with the RL ones. They come in black too, but def not as stellar. An FYI to anyone splurging, they run REALLY small. I know both colorways are available on too if Saks is all sold out.

    I wish I had kept the pairs I had when this was in fashion back in college. I do have a coach pair that I might break out this season. Since like you I do not have an office to justify a polished look I was thinking of styling them with ankle socks underneath an old fashioned looking a-line skirt.

  8. Jenny says

    Gah, those Prada ones are making my day! I love this trend. Anyone remember back in the day around the time Tom Ford took the world by storm at Gucci, there was a Gucci ad with shoes like these? I’m probably the only one who does and I have that ad somewhere in my crazy inspiration books. Perfection!

  9. Kerr says

    I love this look. I had a few pairs back in high school. We had a dress code and had to look like little office workers every day of the week. If only I had not gotten rid of the shoes!

    This trend is going to be a tough one for me. Sort of brings back some horrible corporate days memories that I would really rather forget. Loafers and kahkis and Ann Taylor suits. Never again!!

  11. Kari says

    Hmm, I haven’t managed to get into the loafer trend yet, but the heels look great! I can totally imagine them with a classy sheath dress. There you go, putting ideas into my head again…
