Borrowed from men, women’s moccasins and loafers are practical, elegant and easy to wear. All qualities which make them a wardrobe essential. In sportswear or casual mode, these town shoes will go with you wherever you wish to wear them. Their shape and their unrivalled comfort give you the reassurance of being well shod in all seasons.
Their design and ease of coordination with a polo dress, city trousers or jeans make them irresistible. Women's leather moccasins with eyelets always look good. This very British detail is sometimes replaced with a little bow, fringing or a decorative bar. Without heels or set on a wedge heel to perfectly support the foot, moccasins are available in an endless range of colours. The basic colours - beige, navy, black or white - are timeless. Light-coloured moccasins are the best choice in fine weather for wearing with jeans, shorts or a straight skirt. For tackling a day of shopping or going on a trip, moccasins are the perfect way to pep up an outfit.
The presence of cut-outs and details make them even pleasanter to wear. Those slip-on shoes for women are also easy to wear and an elasticated vamp fits the shoe perfectly to the foot. Hidden behind stitched leather strips, elastic provides comfort and improves the fit for wide feet. The styles without interior seams in soft leather offer total comfort for sensitive feet. With them on your feet, you can trek through museums, stroll all day long on holiday or cover kilometres of corridors without getting tired. Soles with a raised heel and non-slip sole support the arch and prevent slipping. You can lengthen your stride safely while maintaining a good posture. With so many qualities, you can better understand why some women always have a pair of moccasins in their shopping bag!
You can combine jeans with a shirt or a plain white T-shirt and a blazer with a pair of black women's loafers. Smooth, matt or satiny leather will make this combination more casual while a black patent finish will accentuate its sophistication, especially if you finish off this outfit by coordinating the colour of your handbag with that of some heeled loafers and slip on a black or beige trench coat complemented with a silk scarf. In spring or autumn, you can replace these tops with a cardigan or jumper chosen in pastel shades. In fine weather, you can wear a pair of moccasins with a shirt dress for a casual chic look or a striped polo dress to accentuate the summery aspect. In recent years, stylists have experimented with original finishes and colours. Vibrant shades modernise classic ensembles as do prints imitating leopard or snakeskin or creating an iridescent effect.
