I can’t help it, Sunday mornings (when you’re not working) are the best time of the week. Forget going to a bar on a Friday night, I’m all about the Sunday morning coffees. The outfits are casual and easy and theres no rush to be anywhere. Sounds like heaven to me! One thing I love about casual outfits are comfortable shoes and the casual shoe of the season has got to be the backless loafer, or the loafer mule as it can be called. These look smart, but feel comfortable and literally work with any outfit (okay, maybe not literally any outfit, but certainly most!). The ones I’m wearing here are the Topshop Kylie Loafers and are actually leather (sorry vegan team, I messed up here) but I do get a lot of wear out of these in the two colours that I have, which are blush pink and black. They aren’t currently available online but I do know they have silver and a purple tapestry style pattern in the Perth store at the moment. However, I have linked seven pretty cute, non-leather versions below too.
My loafers are incredibly beat up because I love wearing them so much but I kind of like the wear and tear of them and how they have a bit of character to them now. I honestly think they are worth a purchase.
My top three reasons to love backless loafers:
- They are the easiest shoes to put on. No zips, no buckles, no laces.
- They can look professional and smart or they can look effortless and casual.
- They are just the perfect addition to a chic, simple wardrobe giving you a Gucci inspired edge to any outfit.
I know a lot of people are a bit afraid of the loafer trend but once you have them, honestly you will live in them. Have you got a pair? What’s your favourite way to style them?
