The saying goes “April showers bring May flowers” which always holds true year after year. Right now, we are stuck in the showers part of the saying which means a lot of overcast days, rain boots, and umbrellas. But what do you wear on those days when the rain holds back and you aren’t constrained to those rain boots?

With the amount of walking I have to do across campus to get to class, I like to center my outfit around my shoes. While I have a wide variety of shoes, my choice for class is often based on two criteria: they must be comfortable and cute. This being said I searched for a pair of flat loafers that would withstand the walk to class, and I found the perfect pair.

The flat loafers I am wearing are the perfect addition to any outfit. I consider these loafers to be a basic item, and you can easily match them to any clothing. I chose to pair them with my Levi’s 501 jeans that are fitted but not quite skinny jeans. For my shirt I wore a white and blue stripped off-the-shoulder top. To finish off the look, I added my camel trench coat and kept it simple by not adding any jewelry. Pairing all of these items together is cute while also casual at the same time, the perfect classroom combination.

While I paired my flats with jeans and a top, one can easily pair loafers with any outfit. Try opting for a loose dress or skinny jeans and a boxy blazer. However you decide to style these shoes, you will look trendy while walking in comfort, just make sure to look out for puddles if you opt for a backless pair of loafers.
