3 Reasons Why the Loafer Reigns Supreme

It is no coincidence that the loafer has resurged in popularity in recent years.

As a casualty of the 2020 Pandemic, workwear fashion has transitioned from a "buttoned-up" to a "buttoned-down" aesthetic. Business casual has taken on a new meaning and many women have adopted this classic style as their "go-to" office shoe. 

In this Journal Post, we explore the nuances behind this timeless shoe and the reasons why the Loafer continues to remain queen.đź‘‘


1. The structured Style

The Loafer's clean silhouette makes her versatile and classy. Often showcasing classic hardware, wearing this shoe creates an allure of days gone by;  afternoons strutting down London's high street, bopping in and out of bookstores and eclectic shops. 

Throw on a pair of these beauties and create an instant smart, sharp office look. 


2. Comfort Is Key

An elevated alternative to the standard ballet flat, the loafer is an excellent choice for a comfy and trendy staple shoe. 

Our Luna Selene loafer features a plush gel insole and a 3/4-inch block heel to ensure maximum wearability. 


3. Her Timeless Versatility 

With her Norwegian origins, the loafer was dubbed the "Norwegian moccasin" as she rose in popularity. 

Today, the loafer is a mainstay for the fashionista who holds an appreciation for sophistication and elegance. 

Purchase a pair of these gorgeous flats and they will hold court in your closet for years to come. ✨
