Platform Loafers are the fall 2021’s hottest footwear Essentials

This time last year, I was allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllg about a good lug sole boot. The thick look felt like a long step from the fluffy slippers I had been wearing for months, and the idea of ​​stomping around in something big and fat definitely won me over. This year, though, I’m not quite ready to venture into the boot territory, so I plan to style some platform loafers as the perfect sartorial segue between seasons.

In my humble opinion, loafers are deeply underrated. That said, I have a feeling this is their year! Often dismissed as a “work shoe” or pushed to the recesses of the mind and solely associated with private school uniforms, loafers can be incredibly chic when worn properly – edgy, even! Has all the fashion TikToks about Dark Academia taught you anything ?!

When it comes to fall and winter footwear, this year’s trends are varied. Do not be surprised if you see your favorite influencers switching OTK boots to cowboy boots. If you’re looking for a trend that feels a little more timeless (but still has an unexpected flair), go for the faithful loafer that is literally elevated by chunky platform soles this season.

Below you can read about a bit of loafers I have already pre-styled in my head. I definitely need a pair in each color.
