If you’re not ready for over-the-knee stiletto boots or sky-high platforms, then step into the most sought-after flats of AW22. The preppy slip-ons are comfy, stylish and the heel-of-choice for influencers and fashion editors alike.

Traditional loafers are where it’s at right now and we’re grateful for their glorious renaissance. Worn with classic tailoring, their enduring elegance is steadfast. However, those looking for an edge will love the heavier designs, especially when teamed with floaty dresses, faux leather trousers or jeans with an oversized blazer. The ultimate combo is the chunky-soled shoes with a pair of ankle socks. Look to Hailey Bieber for inspo.

We can thank Prada and Gucci for the rise of the loafer. Beautifully crafted, they became instant bestsellers, but if your budget doesn’t allow it, every label from & Other Stories to Kurt Geiger has created a sleek take on the designer must-have. Look out for statement soles, varying colourways or chunky buckles for that contemporary update.

Take your pick and shop our edit…

Loafers are the quickest way to give your new season wardrobe an instant update. Go for neutral or classic shades to complement everything from your denims to winter florals.
