DESIGNER LOAFERS AT FASHIONETTE
Whether in suede, nappa leather or even in glistening patent leather, the timeless design of the loafer continues to enjoy great popularity among trendsetters and fashion icons. As far back as the early 1920s, the initial designs of the much-loved loafer quickly found favour in the USA. In elite American colleges in particular, designer loafers became the go-to model for the Ivy League. The most popular continues to be the penny loafer, which has a small slit in the leather detail at the instep of the shoe. With a small heel, the trendy loafer is not only considered extremely stylish footwear, but as a unisex shoe it combines both feminine and masculine attributes to create a perfect style. Then as now, men and women combine cool designs like the tassel loafer with shirts, chino trousers and, very importantly, socks, ensuring the continued popularity of the university chic trend. The loafer continues to guarantee a classic and fashionable look. At fashionette you will find a wide selection of luxury ballerinas and designer loafers.
FASHIONETTE LAYS THE WORLD OF BALLERINAS AT YOUR FEET
The ballerina – The success story of the flat shoe favourite began as early as the 1950s with actress Audrey Hepburn. The style icon’s childhood dream was to become a ballerina. Renowned Italian shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo consequently designed her first flat shoes in this popular silhouette for a film role. The chic women’s shoe became the Hollywood star’s trademark, not least because of the illustration on the cover of Vogue. The model created a small fashion revolution that was celebrated by women all over the world shortly afterwards. A new trend shoe was born! Since then, we can hardly imagine life without the comfortable everyday companion. The ballet-inspired classic visually elongates the leg for delicate, feminine moments. Whether for a leisurely stroll through town with your best friend or as an elegant companion for the office – ballerinas have since become the all-purpose weapon of choice for the shoe closet. Following the worldwide hype around the trendy shoe in the 1960s, it managed to win the hearts of fashion-savvy women again in the 80s. To this day, the flat evergreens are part of the standard repertoire of any well-stocked wardrobe.
BALLERINAS AND LOAFERS – WHAT ARE THEY?
Both loafers and ballerinas appeal for their comfort above all else. Both shoes are flat and therefore a comfortable counterpart to chic pumps or high heels – but the shoes do not lack in style! The loafer in particular boasts a classic look and elegant leather details, meaning everyday-chic outfits are guaranteed. The low shoe comes in either a traditional slip-on design or with laces, but always close-toed. Compared to the more elegant loafer, ballerinas offer a more classic casual look with delicate and feminine silhouettes. The trend shoes do without too many details, focussing rather on a simple design. The understated style complements any outfit and shines both as part of everyday looks and with dressy evening wear. The often closed-toe shoe also comes as a slingback with straps at the heel, offering an exciting alternative to the classic ballerina. Whether you go for a loafer or ballerina, both models make for an extremely versatile shoe.
