The Fancy Flat

 

 

The loafer or slipper is a slip on shoe, low and lace-less shaped like a moccasin. One of the first designs was introduced in London by Wildsmith Shoes, called the Wildsmith Loafer. They began as casual shoes, but became popular in America as city lounge shoes.  Gucci was the first designer to introduce the loafer as a dressy shoe with a tassel on the front or a metal tab. This shoe became trendy once again in 2016 and it is here to stay for the rest of 2017. The loafer is more like a fancy flat that can be comfortable yet appropriate to wear with jeans to tailored pants. A dressier version of this cute shoes can even replace your heels and be worn with skirts and dresses. The loafer is a versatile shoe for all tastes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slip-on_shoe
