15 Pairs Of Loafers To Snag For Spring That Still Feel Youthful & Fresh

Now that we've had a few consecutive days of warmth (crossing my fingers for more), the promise of summer days wean closer and closer, meaning I can finally stash away my winter boots once and for all. Finally, my flip flops, sandals, and cute loafers are taking over my shoe rack, and I couldn't be happier about that. If I have to wear my shearling-lined boots one more time this season, I may scream.

If you happen to live in the Northeast, you know the weather can be...tricky. And dressing for it — even trickier. One day, you may be experiencing sunny, warm days, and the next, it could be rainy and about 10-15 degrees warmer. It's no joke, and it's happened to me at the most inopportune moments. So, when the seasons have actually changed, and I know that warmer days are definitely ahead, I get way too excited.

Enter the practical flat: Super comfy and built for those summer days and nights, especially in NYC, when sandals sometimes just don't cut it in this concrete jungle. And my current obsession? Loafers. For as long as I can remember, I've always been super into menswear, and nothing borrows a style hint from the boys quite like a cool loafer. They're polished, they're put together, and most of all, they're comfortable. Could you ask for a better combination? I say no.

The hard part about shopping for loafers can be that, well, they look rather....matronly. No shade to my mom, she's the cutest woman out there, but sometimes, I want to look a little more youthful. So, if you're with me on this one, check out some options that still feel super fresh.
