We really can’t remember the last time we considered a pair of flat comfortable shoes that weren’t sneakers. Those sneaky sneakers have infiltrated themselves into all parts of our lives. It’s almost as if there is a sneaker for every occasion, which makes choosing anything else ‘uncomfortable’. Well for Fall 2020 the sneaker finds a serious contender to its title of ‘most reliable shoe’. The loafer has stormed almost every runway for Fall, making a great case for this contemporary classic.
As we’ve mentioned before, Fall 2020 is all about upgrading basics. I find it quite interesting how Fall 2020 fashion was actually shown before the onset of COVID. At that time, the world had the environment at the forefront of its concerns, yet the clothing is almost perfect for our new COVID existence. The essentials, and most reliable of lockdown pieces, namely sweatpants, bathrobes and and printed sweaters have all cropped up on the Fall runways, be it in a more formal form. The coats are bathrobe in style, cut generously for luxurious and most likely sustainable fabrics, and the pant of the season mimics the sweatpants comfort without skimping on formality. In true form, the loafer has come in as an upgrade to the summer sneaker or mule. The reliable 80’s shoe, has been given a makeover, its often chunky platform, and semi-sheen leather match perfectly to the relaxed attitude of fall fashion. Whether you are a Prada loafer girl, with its chunky sole, a shoe that has officially reached cult status. Or perhaps a dressier Gucci platform pump kind, or even a JW Anderson fan, there is plenty of choice. Click here to check out our top 20 picks.
