To loafer or not to loafer?

Asos leather trousers - Asos gold cuffs - Sekonda watch - Asos spiked cuffs - Louboutin metal cap loafers - leopard studded loafers

Putting together some the items in my shopping wishist I noticed it came out a pretty aggressive combo!  I think leather trousers are a must have for a girl who think at Kate Moss as a style icon. They're usually expensive so why don't get them at a discounted price? I finally found some gold and punk accessories at a competive price and a gold watch I like: it's simple and it has a vintage feel.

This winter we saw loafers becoming more and more popular. Until now when women wanted to take a break from heels, be comfortable but still be stylish they chose ballerinas. Loafers were considered comfortable and young (think at keds or vans) but very casual. A lot of time ago only the pope used to wear custom made loafers (and Michael Jackson),  later on a  few welthy entrepreneurs started to like them and wear them in formal events: it's loafers mania. Loafers have now arrived into women wardrobe. I judged them too casual at first but now I definitely like the rock versions you see above. What about you? Are you into loafers or not?

La mia wishlist di oggetti da acquistare ai saldi รจ decisamente aggressiva. Beh i pantaloni in pelle sono un must have per una ragazza che considera Kate Moss una style icon. Essendo spesso costosi sono il perfetto acquisto da fare ai saldi. Da Asos ho trovato dei bracciali punk borchiati  e l'orologio dorato : essenziale e dall'appeal vintage.

Quest'inverno abbiamo assistito all'ascesa del trend delle loafers. Prima del loro avvento, quando le donne scendevano dai tacchi, sceglievano di indossare le ballerine rimanendo eleganti e alla moda. Fino ad oggi le loafers erano un scarpa giovane e comoda (come le keds e le vans) ma sicuramente molto casual. Molto tempo fa erano conosciute come le scarpe del papa (e di Michael Jackson), il solo ad indossarle in eventi pubblici, poi alcuni imprenditori lo hanno imitato. Oggi le loafers sono arrivate nei guardaroba delle donne. Personalmente le ho giudicate troppo casual all'inizio mentre ora indosserei volentieri le varianti un po' rock illustrate qui in alto. E voi che ne pensate? Indossate o no le loafers?
