Embellished Loafers

Embellished Loafers
March 2013
The season’s go-to flats glam it up with jewels, embroidery, and plenty of color. Locals share tips on working them into your wardrobe  

BLAKE VAIGNEUR, Creative Director, Rowen Footwear
“Women are loving the luxe feel of embellishments, which are a great way to feminize the loafer trend. Keep the look casual by pairing the shoes with pants, shorts, etc.—they aren’t meant to be dressy.”

“Throw these on like you would your favorite pair of black boots. For day, I’d wear them with skinny tapered Mother jeans and a slouchy sweater. For night, a black mini shift dress.”

DESMOND KINLAW, style blogger, Chinos and Cheesecake & Charleston grit
“Don’t wear them with patterns or anything bedazzled. Keep your supporting cast understated so the look doesn’t get too busy.”
