The loafer returns
The penny loafer has been off-radar for years but I’m sensing a return to the collegiate flat. In my student years it was all about the preppie Bass Weejun worn with ankle-grazing stovepipes and a Harrington jacket, topped off with tortoiseshell Ray-Ban Wayfarers (yes, it was the eighties!). This time round it looks more exciting – check out these Christian Louboutin for Chris Benz neon leather and mesh loafers, spotted at New York Fashion Week…

What a match made in footwear-heaven. The mesh and vibrant orange look amazing.

Hey Riz, I think penny loafers need to be shown off so I’m thinking ankle-length stovepipe pants with stripy socks and a poloshirt, or with opaque tights and a mini sweater-dress with pockets. Maybe they’d work well with next spring’s nerdy look in which case I like the idea of 3/4 length smart pants, ankle socks, a button down shirt with sleeves rolled up, and some geeky glasses!
