Let's Hear it for the Boys

When you hear the word “loafer” you might automatically picture your grandfather sitting on a velvet chair in his robe, next to the fire with a pipe in his mouth. But the elderly aren’t the only ones who can pull off these sleek pairs of shoes! Slipping on a pair of loafers is a way to add class to any outfit while still keeping your feet nice and cozy. With his gold embroidered and black velvet loafers, this Fashionisto is changing the classic “old man” shoe into something hip and fashionable.

As an alternative to the velvet jacket, this Fashionisto is wearing an airy, lightweight Polo Ralph Lauren flannel that he keeps slightly open giving the ladies a peak into his heart, or his chest. Wearing a lightweight flannel is perfect for the spring weather that could be pretty unpredictable here in New York. Everyone has a pair of blue jeans in his or her closet right? Well jeans are a classic pairing to any flannel shirt like this Fashionisto shows, as he sports a dark wash gray denim pair. To both flaunt those classic grandfather loafers and keep cool in the warmer temperatures, he smartly rolls the jeans up to calf level.

This Fashionisto accessorizes this classic outfit with a standout rose gold and black watch that I’m sure people would not be looking at just to check the time. Not only does he prove that style has no age limit, but that you can also take a smart pair of loafers from night to day. Respect your elders with amazing style!

Hint: Going out later on in the night? Simply layer on a blazer to dress up the outfit. You can even channel your inner grandfather by making it velvet!
