You can thank brands like Gucci and Sies Marjan for making a case for the loafer comeback.

And loafers in 2018 are much louder than they once were—decked with heritage iconography, color-blocked, embellished with ribbons and rhinestones…. Quite a different look from the solid leather versions you might’ve as part of a uniform. Spring’s best loafers are of a distinctly fashion-forward breed—check out (and shop!) some of the coolest styles on the market right now.
