The New Outfit Combo You Won’t Have Done Before

The coolest new combo for summer is here and yes, it’s as simple as pairing a dress with our fave classic shoe: loafers. From grandpa to Gucci, loafers have fast become the biggest shoe of the summer, so of course we’ve been pairing them with everything in our wardrobe. Skinnies, shorts, you name it we’ve tried it. But nothing quite compares to the effortlessly cool dress and loafer duo…

We’re not the only ones who think so, either – celebs have been championing the look and now everyone worth their style salt is getting a slice of the loaf – ahem – action.

Lily Aldridge was spotted pairing hers with a flowing white shirtdress, making for a seriously sleek get-up with a girly edge. Follow her lead with bare legs and sunnies, or pack an extra preppy punch with cute frilly socks.



Dakota Johnson, meanwhile, nailed the Gucci girl geek look opting for a cute lace dress complete with ribbon bow tie and classic tan satchel.



The dress+loafer combo isn’t just for the daytime either, go for backless shoes and dress up with a figure flattering frock and red lippy come date night.

As for the office, this combo’s way comfier than heels and a trouser suit, and for an added bonus, no-one will know if you forgot to paint your toes! Soz.

Convinced? You should be – pair loafers with any (and we mean any) frock you own and you’ll bag yourself style points sooner than we can say shop. Expect this dynamic duo to become your go-to look for seasons to come.
