18 Reasons You Should Consider Swapping Your Boots for Loafers for Fall

While everyone has their sights set on bulking up their boot stash this time of year, we’re switching gears. Loafers are the fall-appropriate footwear that can jazz up practically any outfit. And the latest crop of loafers is designed to complement both your workwear and off-duty wardrobes. More and more designers are adding adventurous details and funky accents to play up the laid-back, slip-on silhouette. From animal-inspired buckles to tassels to faux pearls, the 2019 incarnations are anything but boring. Plus, they’re just as comfy as any pair of lug sole boots in your closet.
