Velvet Loafer, $120
Finding a special occasion shoe that doesn’t have a heel in a sea of stilettos is a challenge any time of year. Factor in the pre-holiday season and it’s next to impossible. So when I found this velvet loafer a few weeks ago, I knew we’d have to feature it for all of our readers who aren’t into heels and prefer a comfortable yet stylish flat. Velvet flats sometimes look more like slippers, which is perfectly fine, but a loafer style is more substantial and gives a menswear-inspired vibe to your look.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to feature items to get you through the holiday season. I see these going to a casual cocktail party in someones home, with a pair of pants and a cashmere sweater (check back tomorrow to see how to pull this together). You could also wear them with boyfriend jeans, a simple top and a statement necklace for a funky, slightly irreverent casual look.
The loafer featured above in neon pink velvet is also available in an array of prints and colors.
