I'm Calling It: These Loafers Are the Most Stylish Shoes of 2022

Is it just us, or is it easy to lose count of the number of designer-shoe unboxing reels on Instagram lately? If it isn’t those Prada chunky loafers, it’s Celine sandals or the Saint Laurent slingbacks we told you a few months back would be key for 2022. And on the subject of Saint Laurent, you’ve most probably spotted the fashion house’s penny loafers without even realising. The classic flats have been given an understated twist with the YSL monogram adorned subtly on the side of each pair. In addition to our wish list of spring basics that are set to become staples this year, we’re predicting these are going to be huge for spring and beyond.

Bridging the gap between scruffy winter boots and toe-baring summer sandals, the loafer is the sleek way to slip into spring. And when style queen Pernille Teisbaek wears the particular pair in question with leather trousers and a knit vest, naturally we’ll all want to re-create this perfect pairing. But for now, loafers with socks also get the seal of approval from fashion editors and influencers everywhere. This clever combo is also a way to wear them in, as we all know a new pair of slip-on shoes needs to soften up to be comfy. However you choose to wear loafers, we’re here to tempt you into trying out the loafer trend with Saint Laurent’s style, along with so many more from the likes of Ganni, Gucci, Tod’s and Prada.
