It might feel like summer has hit our little town of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, but the forecast is not so bright and warm for the next week. So, why not indulge in a little spring attire that is truly timeless and irresistibly comfortable?
I always viewed loafers as solely for the elderly, and I admit that was stereotypical and incorrect, as I myself have come to adore the loafer look. They are an absolutely perfect alternative to flats, with a more supportive sole, and fit seamlessly with any pant: my favorite is a pair of skinny jeans and the forever classic, black velour loafer. However, if this look does not fit your repertoire, I’ve included a variety of different loafers—ranging in price and personality—below. Shop away!

1) Classic Cool
These are the picture-perfect loafer: a little bit of a heel and a classic stripped pattern in canvas: so elegant yet chic.
2) Elegant and Timeless
If you’re in need of a formal and respectable flat, go for these. They look just like the utterly more expensive Stubbs and Wootin (a loafer investment) but cost less: no one would even know!
$49.99 (They’re even on sale!)
75 and under
1) Taste the Rainbow
These come in a whirlwind variety of different colors and add a touch of effortless cool to a simple outfit.
2) Oxford Overload
When talking about loafers, you must include the ever-present Oxford shoe: a pair of English elegance and springtime chic. I love these in gray—goes with everything—or try light pink!
100 and under
1) Basic Necessity
If you’re looking for a simple yet stylish statement, you must go for these. The splash of color in the orange or the every classic white and black add the last touch to a perfect outfit.
2) Into the Wild
These shoes combine the perfect touch of cheetah and the feeling of Michael Jackson’s studded shoulder pads. You will be sure to make a statement in these and might even return to the 80s! Hello Madonna!

1) Perforated and Perfect for Spring
My first response to these was “I need these!” Timeless yet so seasonal, this pair screams springy weather while still channeling the warmth of a loafer.
2) Sparkle and Shine
These are just too much fun to pass up. Enough sparkle to add color to a banal outfit and too much to make an emphasis: go for it!
