A classic flat shoe without laces, the easy slip on nature of loafers makes for a versatile footwear choice. Opt for traditional leather or suedes for typical smart casual style, or experiment with plush velvets and shiny patent finishes to add excitement into your look.
Loafers - the original slip on shoes
Pair tan tasseled loafers with chino shorts and a light linen button front men's shirt with roll up sleeves for summer smart casual style, perfect for long lunches in pub gardens or balmy evenings spent at BBQs. In summer, don't forget to pair your tan loafers with hidden trainer socks or bare feet - ankle socks are a big no no for smooth style. For women, black city shorts with pastel or brown shades of suede loafers and a navy striped breton t-shirt give a nonchalant Parisian attitude to your look, and are even more charming with loosely braided hair.
A clever choice for both smart and casual occasions - loafers
Loafers are a great alternative to traditional dress shoes for smart occasions. With a more laidback edge, loafers look spot on with cool mid blue three piece suits - accessorise with a traditional pocket watch or pocket square and Wayfarer sunglasses for a quirky touch. Women can adopt loafers into their workwear wardrobes for a touch of fashionable style. Pair deep burgundy velvet slimline loafers with cropped wide leg trousers and a soft silk blouse, and add a co-ordinating soft leather burgundy bag for office power dressing.
Enjoy the casual comfort of a new pair of loafers from Zalando
Loafers are the most iconic slip on shoe around. This style of footwear had its heydey in the 1930s. It was in this decade that straps started to appear across the front of the loafer. As well as serving a decorative function, this strap was also used to secure small items, especially pennies. That is why loafers with this decoration on are often called 'penny loafers'. The items in our collection of loafers boast a wide array of other design details however. Whether you are looking for something with eye catching tassels, a shiny buckle, or a glamorous bow, you are sure to find inspiration for your new wardrobe addition here.
