There are numerous cool ways to style black loafers. But it’s also been a while since I have even worn loafers – like we might be talking years. Hence this mood board of fashion inspiration was absolutely necessary to get my style juices flowing.
Prada is at the top of its fashion game and has been serving us cult item after cult item recently. From their nylon cross body bags, to their Monolith boots. Now one of my current favorites has to be their take on the classic black loafer.
This contemporary take on the timeless classic loafer has created the perfect shoe – with glossy black leather, a chunky rubber sole and the iconic triangular Prada logo. Its versatility means that it can be styled for so many occasions! Whether you want to dress them down with a pair of slouchy jeans and cable knit jumper or dress up with sheer black tights and your best LBD – the options are endless.
Not to mention you can find so many amazing dupes for this staple shoe. The only difference you’ll find is the logo and of course the price tag (which is one thing I can’t complain about!).
Keep scrolling for some fashion inspiration on how to style black loafers for everyday wear. These looks are easy to recreate and focus on simple and timeless pieces that will stay with you for seasons to come.
1. Jeans + T-Shirt
KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid! Focus on simplicity with a loose fitting comfy pair of jeans. To mix it up, opt for a colored pair in a natural tone – think sandy beige, a warm caramel or mocha brown. Complete the look with a white cotton t-shirt and matching leather belt.
2. Preppy Vibes
Loafers are inherently preppy. So why not focus on bringing the prep out by wearing them with a black tennis skirt and a soft knit jumper layered over a crisp white shirt.
3. Faux Leather Trousers
A sleek way to style these staple shoes is with leather look trousers. Play around with different textured pieces and a simple outfit will speak for itself! I love this look which again focuses on layering a relaxed jumper over a white shirt.
4. Everyday Leggings
Looking for comfort? Well this ones probably for you. Elevate your everyday comfy-casual look by wearing textured leggings or ones with a sheen like these. You can easily then pair them with your loafers for a super chill everyday look.
5. Smart Casual
I love an over-sized blazer and the boxy-ness of a large blazer worn with a more masculine styled shoe just works so well. Wear a total monochrome look like this or dare to go bold and wear a brightly colored statement blazer. Don’t forget to accessorize! If you are looking for some great affordable accessories, Amazon has some amazing finds and dupes.
6. The Statement Coat
A great way to style an outfit is to base it around a statement piece – like with this gorgeous aviator trench. Turn a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit into something effortlessly chic. I think that the nature of the loafer presents the perfect opportunity to experiment with socks. Whether you like just plain black or white socks, or socks with a frill trim or lace. It all will help add extra interest to your outfit without breaking the bank.
