When the sidewalks are slick with ice, and I tire of wearing boots everywhere, loafers tend to grab my attention. And while I have far more ballet flats than loafers in my closet, I am coming to understand their value for mixing up the traditional flat chaussure. My attention was captured recently by Sam Edelman’s leopard loafer. Already having a pair of his shoes in my closet which have impressed me with their quality and reasonable price, I am seriously considering adding this particular pair to my wardrobe.
Paired with either dark denim straight-leg jeans or skinny jeans depending upon your preference, wear the jean naturally or roll the hem for a fresh look. And since leopard is a neutral staple, add some fabulous color with Joie’s Ameline silk 3/4 sleeve blouse (I have three of their silk blouses – the Marru top – and wear them constantly – love!). A classic leather jacket, black sunnies along with a black crossover tote and you are set for a casually, chic outing or a day of travel in comfort and in style.
