Loafin' around - Slide into next season with style, says Annmarie O'Connor.
Alessandra Michele kicked off loafer love this season with his furry horsebit slide (as worn by Alexa Chung); a style crush which dominated well into autumn/winter 16 (hirsute or otherwise).
Opt for backless styles to bridge the wonky weather divide or pay it forward in premium leather and animal print for a more practical pay-off.
Insider tip: Autumn/winter 16 sees squared off toes, brocades, penny loafers and kiltie fringing; as well as metal and hardware trim.
You know where you heard it first!
Do Casual Friday with an office shirtdress or dial down a flirty mini for Saturday night drinks.
Wear with frayed jeans and an overshirt for layered loveliness.
Make like Gucci and opt for prissy blouses and knifepleat skirts.
Pair with a culotte suit and slogan tee for breezy brio.
