Loafers Influencing Women’s Footwear for 2012

Have you noticed a few more loafers on people’s feet?

Business MeetingIf you’ve been looking at women’s feet for the past few weeks you may be noticing an interesting style trend. Loafers are working their way back into fashion. In fact, all styles like the penny, bit, and lace loafer are all becoming part of the latest footwear trend. Women everywhere are starting to wear loaf heels, loafer flats, and perhaps even in the spring we’ll see some loafer sandals.

It’s a loafer world and people are getting excited.

The style is throwback to an earlier era. Karrie highlighted the move toward ’60s fashion a few days ago. She was right on the money. Last month Karrie also mentioned back to work styles and included a popular loafer.

Get ready for some loafers. They’re back in fashion.
