While sneakers and dresses have been the cool-girl uniform for awhile now (and one I’m still loving, because duh), it’s not the right look for all offices or for days you want to look a bit more polished but cannot with heels. That’s why I’m obsessed with the loafer trend for fall. It’s my next shoe investment and probably my only one this season. It’s versatile, elevating jeans and a tee, but I really love how the prepster staple looks paired with a dress. It keeps the look chic and put-together but feels less try hard than heels and is infinitely more comfy for running around town. And if flats just won’t cut it at your office, it’s a step up commuter shoe that you won’t be embarrassed to be wearing if you bump into a coworker before you can stash them under your desk.
