4 Summer Loafers for Women

A few requests have come in summer loafer recommendations, so let’s round some up!

There are many opportunities to wear loafers in the summer: with shorts instead of sneakers or pair them with trousers. They are great for long days of travel or sightseeing.

Today, I have four chic options with good support in breathable materials you can comfortably spend your day in.

Summer Loafers for Women

We’re wearing them with straight-slim jeans in any color that hit at the ankle, or shorts of any length.

They’re more lightweight than lug sole and heeled loafers, and a lot more comfortable to wear in warm weather.

They’re ideal for busy days on your feet, on a vaca that includes lots of walking, or just at home running errands.

We’re seeing these in both traditional neutrals and pops of color, so you can really let your personality come out and shine.


Let’s start with the most expensive but worth-it shoe on our list.

M.Gemi makes a stunning shoe, with quality that matches its price.

They’re reminiscent of moccasins, but with a genuine gommini rubber sole that holds up to daily wear better than any moccasin ever could.

Their Felize Suede Loafer is their best selling shoe, of all time, available in range of shades.

Personally, for this quality and price, I would go with “latte” a wear-with-everything neutral ideal for warm weather.

These are a proper shoe with gorgeous details in suede which will add a richness to any outfit.

I see these paired with slim trousers and a crips button down, or shorts and a stripe Breton Top.

Next up, Rothy’s.

These are FANTASTIC.

Styled after traditional penny loafers, The Driver is done in Rothy’s signature knit so they are lightweight and machine washable.

Penny loafers are defined by a horizontal strap that runs across the vamp (tongue) of the shoe, with a slot where, supposedly, young men and students would keep a coin for the payphone. Hence, the name of this classic shoe.

You can pick up a neutral, or, add your pop of color.

Below we’re featuring the navy.

You could also pick up Dragon Fruit, Periwinkle or Aquamarine.

Birdie’s are another reader favorite brand. I have several of these that I rotate throughout the holiday season, so I’m excited to try this pair in trending raffia.

You have 17 limited seasonal styles to choose from – these sell out quickly so scoop on up if you are interested.

The run true to size.

Finally, we featured a lot of styles from Vionic a brand know for balancing comfort with style.

These versatile loafers are updated, classic and comfortable. Available in a dozen colors, in sizes up to and including a 13 with half sizes.

If you have a walking-heavy vacation, or that’s just your lifestyle, you’ll appreciate the springy rubber sole with deep flex grooves.

I have several pairs of M. Gemi drivers. They are pricey but extremely well made and I think a good value. They do run on the narrow side so they may not fit a wider foot.
