Like many of you, I’ve retired all my heels this year 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. No surprise then to see that a number of comfortable (but still very chic) flat shoe trends have emerged this 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 21 best loafers for women that I’ve pulled together here. I’ve curated a selection from some of my favorite retailers, and the styles range from on-trend chunky loafers to pretty chain-embellished loafers and classic penny loafers. In other words, you’re sure to find a pair you love, no matter your taste, budget, or any other factor. I know I’ve already fallen in love with each of these.
Simply continue on to see why these are my favorite loafers of all and get inspired by a few outfit ideas along the way.
