THE NEW-LOOK LOAFER

Flats are the new heels, according to the style set. In Style fashion features editor and founder of blog EnBrogue.com Hannah Rochell discusses the appeal of the backless loafer

Seen on the Gucci spring/summer 16 catwalk and the pedicured feet of every fashion editor, the backless loafer is the hottest shoe shape this season. Practical and comfortable for our unpredictable summers – with a covered toe for when it’s chilly and rainy, and an open back to let the air circulate when it’s hot – they’re versatile when it comes to styling, too, looking equally good with classic blue jeans and a white shirt as with an on-trend floral-print dress or maxi skirt. There’s never been a better time to ditch the heels and get into a pair of stylish flats.
