Personal styling: Slip into some loafers

Loafers can be a tricky shoe to style, and often many men get it wrong. However, if styled correctly, loafers can upgrade your style and add that finishing touch to class.

The key is choosing a style that compliments the rest of your look, and making sure your trousers are cut to the right length and taper.

If you get these two things right, you can’t really go wrong. But if you’re still a little unsure, here are some top tips for wearing loafers.


Quality matters


Investing in quality leather loafers is essential. Cheaper loafers won’t last as long, especially if you’re wearing them without socks as the heat and sweat will get to the leather more quickly.

What’s more, higher quality leather will be more malleable to the shape of your foot, making them more comfortable.


Keep it simple


Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. Loafers are a big style statement, and sometimes a plainer pair will compliment your outfit better.

Linen or chino trousers pair well with loafers during warmer months and wool or denim is fine in the cooler months.


Socks or no socks?


The great thing about loafers is that they can be worn without socks, but make sure your trousers aren’t sagging over your shoes as this can ruin your look.

If you do want to wear your loafers with socks, match them to the colour of your trousers. Alternatively you can go for a complete contrast, if you wish.


The timeless loafer is a skillful blend of comfort and flair. Being laceless, they’re practical, and with plenty of options on offer – there’s something to suit every taste.
