If there is one shoe that summarizes spring and summer, it’s undoubtedly the loafer. It’s casual, comfortable, but classy at the same time. There’s tons of variations from tassels implemented into the upper to simple and sleek designs. Here are some useful tips for styling men’s loafers this spring.
What Pants To Wear With Loafers
When it comes to loafers, just about anything goes. For pants we recommend a nice pair of cotton chinos. They are lightweight, come in a variety of colours while matching the casual but classy nature the loafer offers. Jeans work just as well but assure you get a proper slim fit. Baggy jeans are always a big no-no. Since it’s the spring, this list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning shorts. Just like chinos, cotton shorts are comfortable and go great with loafers. You can also get them in other materials but always focus on good fitting and versatility.
What Shirts To Wear With Loafers
You can get away with some rather simple shirts every spring and summer. With loafers a classic t-shirt or polo never fails. Unless it’s a chill evening, it’s best to avoid sweaters, hoodies, and alike. Cardigans can work if they are light but always check the weather ahead of time. Dress shirts are another consideration when wearing loafers. Imagine brown loafers, khaki shorts and a white dress shirt on the golf course, sounds nice doesn’t it? You don’t have to go overboard to create an awesome ensemble.
What Accessories To Wear With Loafers
Since we are going for a more casual driven appearance with loafers, we want to apply the same strategy to our accessories. When I think of spring and summer, I think simple watches and bracelets. Canvas and plain watches of any brand will do just fine.
Putting these style tips together will give you a sophisticated but simple outfit you can wear to do anything. It’s formal enough to get dinner but casual enough to go stroll near the beach.
