Like many of you, I’ve retired most of my heels in recent years for, well, obvious reasons. Comfort is now my top priority when getting dressed, and I’m especially discerning when it comes to which shoes I’m going to wear. It’s no surprise then to see that a number of comfortable (but still very chic) flat-shoe trends have emerged this past year. The number one among them? Loafers. Maybe it’s because they add a polished vibe to any outfit, maybe it’s because they’re practical and easy to wear, or maybe it’s because they’re a perennial favorite that will never really go out of style. Whichever the reason, they’re the dominating flat-shoe trend of the moment, and I’m so here for it.
If you’ve been eyeing the trend but haven’t found a pair you love just yet, then look no further than the eight best pairs of loafers that I’ve pulled together here. I’ve curated a selection from some of the top retailers, and the styles range from on-trend chunky loafers to pretty chain-embellished loafers and classic penny loafers. You’re sure to find a pair you love, no matter your taste, budget, or any other factor. I took input from our team and scanned through online reviews to find the best of the best.
