5 Ways to Style Loafers for the Workplace

Loafers, those versatile and comfortable shoes, aren't just for casual Fridays anymore. They've transcended their laid-back origins and become a key player in the polished yet approachable work wardrobe. Whether your office leans towards business formal or embraces a business casual vibe, there's a loafer look to elevate your workday style. After discussing the five ways to style tan loafers, we would like to introduce you to our top-notch Loafers. You can also explore our variety of womens black loafers at Madison Maison. Let's dive in to learn the five ways to incorporate these comfy classics into your professional attire:

Five ways to dress down loafers for the office 

1. The Tailored Powerhouse:

Try this combo to bring out your inner boss lady—it's polished and full of confidence. Match a well-tailored pair of dark neutral pair of black, charcoal, or navy trousers with a pair of classic black loafers. This classic look is finished with a fitting jacket in a similar hue and a fresh white button-down shirt tucked in. This attire is ideal for crucial meetings, presentations, or days when you need to appear authoritative.

Pro Tip: To elevate the ensemble, choose loafers with a delicate touch, such as a gold chain or tassel adornment.

2. The Crafted Combination:

Loafers may be a transitional piece between feminine and masculine styles for a more stylish look. Consider pairing a boldly printed top with a tucked-in midi skirt made of a flowing material like satin or silk. Wearing a tailored jacket and tan loafers will counterbalance the softness. On days when you want to show off your flair without sacrificing professionalism, this ensemble is perfect.

Play with textures—here's a pro tip! For a little contrast, wear a silk skirt with a suede loafer.

3. Friday's Elevated Casual:

A casual yet polished Friday outfit goes well with loafers. Instead of jeans, wear dark wash chinos or cropped wide-leg pants to dress up your casual ensemble. A well-fitting crewneck sweater or tucked-in t-shirt gives a polished look, and loafers finish the look of carefree elegance.

Pro Tip: Choose a statement loafer in a striking hue, such as burgundy or emerald green, to add a flash of color.

4. The Chic Preppy:

Try a sophisticated yet cute loafer style to channel your inner Blair Waldorf. A fitting jacket and a fresh white button-down shirt look great with a pleated skirt in a timeless houndstooth pattern. This traditional combo is enhanced by the preppy attractiveness of tan loafers with a penny accent. This outfit is perfect for you if you want to come off as personable and young during networking events or client meetings.

Pro Tip: Accessorize with a silk scarf or bold jewelry to add individuality.

5. The Power Play in Winter:

Loafers are a great addition to winter outfits! Wear a knee-length wool skirt and dark tights with black loafers. Tuck a bulky knit jumper inside the skirt to add warmth and texture. Add a long wool coat to round off the look for a sophisticated, intimidating winter wardrobe.

Pro Tip: For better traction in the cold, choose loafers with a thicker sole.
