Loafers can often be tricky to style in the colder months, yet they can provide a welcome change from the sometimes samey boot or trainer. Practical, versatile and with plenty of options on offer, they can be worn casually or styled to formal occasions to complete an overall look.
As the perfect punctuation to a polished finish, follow D&D’s winter guide to help style your loafers with confidence.
Matched with well-tailored pieces, loafers are a luxurious addition to complete a crisp suit look. As events move indoors, they lend a classic yet laidback footwear option, compared to a more traditional dress shoe.
For the perfect finishing touch, wear ankle grazing trousers to complement a more contemporary aesthetic.
The durable thick soles of D&Ds offer a sturdy structure, enabling them to easily withstand harsher weather.
With emphasis on layering this winter, opt for a slim fit wool coat and tonal trousers or jeans for a sharp off-duty look.
Sock vs no sock
One of the most common misconceptions surrounding loafers is that you shouldn’t wear them with socks, which leads to many people disregarding them in the cooler weather. Well, not only are socks warm – surprisingly - but they also provide an opportunity to add some character to your look. Match them to the colour of your D&Ds for a classier appearance as seen on Eddie Redmayne and Ryan Reynolds. Equally, if you’re feeling more daring, opt for print or colour to lighten up more basic outfits. If you’re not keen on wearing socks, D&Ds will ensure your feet stay warm thanks to their padded quilted lining.
