The loafer, from high-heeled to flat, is fast becoming a wardrobe must-have as they hit upon a more refined look while being completely comfortable. And it’s hard not to become infatuated with this pair of Prada Classic Leopard Loafers. Although pricey at $795, they make for a shoe that we bet you would get years of wear from.
So, how about a more budget-friendly doppleganger?
The Vaneli Jabez Camel Jag Hair Calf Loafer at Zappos is (probably) just as cute, right on trend and is sure to become a wardrobe favorite too. Best, they come at a fraction of the Prada pair’s price tag and are on sale for $81.99 as of press time!
So why not?
And while it takes a certain spirit to rock and animal print, if leopard isn’t your thing, or you’re more of a high heel kind of girl, have no fear, the loafer is right on trend now and there’s got to be something to suit your fancy out there.
We’ve pulled some fab styles for you to think about…
