Timeless in Penny Loafers

I’m a girl who loves classic style and SHOES, so even though penny loafers seemed so 1970s ago, they will always be a timeless shoe in the fashion world.  Penny loafers can be worn by any age group.  The key to wearing the right penny loafers is to keep your look sleek and simple while stile creating a modern edge. 
Mint Message:
As a substitute for flats, try penny loafers since they are rarely worn by the everyday woman.  Plus, penny loafers can help you to stand out as a classy chica and sets you up to be among the classic trendsetters!
When choosing penny loafers it is very important to know how you will wear them.  If you do not adore classic penny loafers, consider shoes that are penny loafer inspired.  For instance, kitten heels or a low pump can be as swanky as traditional penny loafers. 
Leather penny loafers are the best choice since synthetic ones can look very cheap and tatter quickly.  Remember, whether you are going for a classic or modern pair, penny loafers can make you look timeless!  Go out and invest in a good pair of leather penny loafers today so that you can get generous wear out of the shoe by wearing them to work or out and about on the weekend.
At work, wear a feminine blouse and slim pants with your penny loafers.  Any pant with a slim leg that fits at the ankle will show off your loafers.  If you are in an innovative work environment, play up your loafers with bright colored hose, socks, or tights.  Penny loafers can also be worn with a blouse and pencil skirt.
If you own a pair of modern penny loafers that have a heel, try wearing a pair of wide leg trousers or a sheath dress with tights and a tailored blazer.  This will make your daywear look even more appealing at the office!
Let’s say that you want to go and hang out with your girls after work to have a cocktail or you’re having a dinner date with your hubby or boyfriend, wear a shirt dress in fabric that has some sheen, you may also even wear something that is made out of cotton.  Ensure that the garment has a belted waist or wear a belt to create a feminine or hour glass shape.  Your loafers will really pop once you create this look!  For a weekend day look to meet up for brunch or have a casual evening out and about, you can wear menswear inspired garments.  For instance, try wearing a long sleeved blouse with a vest and skinny pants or jeans.
Dark denim jeans create a classic edge and look really great with penny loafers.  Wear a skinny or straight legged pair of jeans that hit right at the ankle or just slightly below it.  Top your jeans off with a tailored cotton shirt or frilly blouse to create an effortless look.

  1. They are exactly like they are pictured and were comfortable on. The color was great. I returned them, ultimately, because they just seemed to skinny looking and I like a rounder shape penny loafer.
