Loafers have earned a worthy place in our everyday wardrobes because they are equal parts stylish and practical. For those new to footwear staples, they are a type of slip-on that do not have laces, typically come in leather or suede and have a low heel. But keep in mind that the latter is the traditional version and these days there is so many different types of loafers to choose from. Two popular, modern styles? Super chunky loafers (as seen on Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, et al.) and bold, high-heeled designs.

Not only are loafers available at every price point, but they are also truly versatile. They go well with almost any piece of clothing, from denim jeans for mini and maxi dresses – especially the aforementioned traditional penny loafer styles that appeared in the late 30s. This style is easily recognizable by the small cutout on the top of the shoe that people used to store pennies in (hence the name “penny loafer”). Today, many loafers still have this detail as a classic design element.

So whether you want a modern pair of loafers or a traditional pair, we’ve rounded up 15 of our favorites to shop this fall and wear for every season to come.
