Style Advice of the Week

Finally the leaves are changing colors and the temperature has settled to a nice yet chilled level on campuses around the country. Fashionistas and Fashionistos are pulling out their chicest trends in preparation for their campus-wide takeover this fall and I could not be any more excited to see what they pull together! What better way to bring in the new season than with a new pair of flats, and by flats I mean loafers!

Loafers are the “it” piece to have this season and Fashionistas and Fashionistos are making it their number one priority to make a statement with this piece this fall! I am all for the loafer on men and women. The fact that they come in so many prints, fabrics and colors make this closed toe, low heel shoe perfect for a night on the town or just walking to class. With celebrities and designers wearing this shoe for class and comfort, it comes as no surprise that Elle Magazine and GQ see this trend taking off in the fashion world!

This week’s Fashionista decided to give her ballet flats a shove in the back of the closet and came out with an amazing substitute: nude colored, patent leather loafers. I must say that this is my personal favorite out of fall fashion trends to be aware of this season! The way she adds the loafers to her look is done in such a sophisticated way! Our Fashionista decides to wear a black and white striped shirt paired with an oversized black pant that she has chosen to cuff to show off her loafers even more! Don’t forget her arm party of gold chains and bracelets that she dons to give off a more chic feel to the outfit! I absolutely love this ensemble and I hope you find that loafers are the best thing since bread was invented…literally.

To imitate this look, check out your local stores ALDO and Nordstrom and get a pair! And remember that what’s on your feet can take an outfit from dull to chic.
