The classic look loafers gave to your school uniforms is now the polish they lend to balance your effortlessly cool basics. It's an update on the old-school favorite that makes them a lot cooler than they were in grade school. This time, pair yours with skinny denim, cargos, or leather pants, and forget the regulation-length pleats. For inspiration, we're looking to some of our favorite celebrity influences, like Natalia Vodianova, Nicole Richie, Olivia Palermo, and Jessica Alba who stepped out rocking their preppy versions with relaxed staples, casual layers, and femme contrasts in mini dresses and lace tops. This is exactly how we plan to wear the trend for Spring, letting our edgier separates play perfect opposites against the classic kicks.
