Flat lovers rejoice! It looks like one of the most popular shoe trends for autumn ’16 is going to be the fancy-yet-comfy loafer. This blast from the past shoe is here to stay, it seems.

We’ll admit we were slightly skeptical at first about these 1970s throwbacks. However, after scrolling through some street style pics on Instagram and Pinterest, we’ve kind off fallen in love with them.

Loafers have crept up on our style radar recently mainly thanks to the Gucci AW16 collection. They’re taking the fashion world by storm.

These mannish shoes can actually look incredibly sophisticated, whether styled with skinny/boyfriend jeans, a pretty summer dress or an edgy A-line skirt. There’s so many different styles to choose from too – from funky metallics, chic leathers and suedes to edgy backless versions.
