A casual take on loafers

Blue jeans, a merino sweater and a pair of sneakers is without a doubt a great casual look. But what if you replaced your trusted sneakers with a pair of loafers instead? You will be surprised how easy it is to elevate your outfit by doing so.

4 general tips when wearing loafers with jeans:

1. For a more casual look, go for materials such as suede or grain leather.

2. Straight-fit jeans with more width in the leg opening gives you a nice drape.

3. It can be easier to combine a lighter shade on the loafers with jeans that have a lighter wash and vice versa.

4. Since this is a casual take on how to wear loafers, you can forget all the style-rules and wear them exactly how you want to.

Fabric, texture and color

Just the mere thought of combining a pair of loafers to your favourite jeans might scare you off. But hear us out, there are several ways to do this. You can match your jeans to a more versatile and less formal fabric such as suede. You can also play around with different colors and textures on your loafers until you find your perfect match. A pair of medium brown suede loafers can go really well together with lighter denim, and a pair of darker loafers in grain calf can easily be combined with denim in a darker blue shade.
