An ideal summer footwear collection includes strappy sandals, flip-flops and comfortable mules. But the season is drawing to a close, which means it’s almost time to swap out your shoe rack – and some celebrities have already beat you to it.
Earlier this week, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Lily Collins all wore the same timeless shoe that we reach for every fall: loafers. Bieber styled a seductive LBD with white socks and black Chanel slippers, while Collins explored a park in a cream pair that complemented her mustard-colored puff-sleeve dress. Jenner, on the other hand, was spotted in Los Angeles in a barely-there black bandeau top, ombre midi skirt and patent leather loafers.
While The Row’s supermodel pick costs a whopping $1,050, the classic shoes don’t have to cost you a pretty dime. Take these Franco Sarto loafers, for example, which are currently available on Amazon for just $80.

Loafers have never gone out of style, but they were ubiquitous last winter. Karlie Kloss has stepped out in her tried-and-true pair of jeans and loafers several times, Bella Hadid wore a cheetah-print pair in Paris, and Jenner herself has revived the chunky ’90s version while browsing art galleries in New York City.
Since then, the loafer love has only grown stronger: just last month, influencer Emma Chamberlain’s “summer uniform” — which includes a chunky pair of loafers over white socks — went viral on TikTok.
It’s safe to say that loafers are a footwear staple, and their comfort and versatility proves why. You can wear them anywhere, from the office with jeans and a blazer to a date night with a romantic dress. From chunky picks like this pair by Steve Madden with an on-trend gold chain, to more elegant, understated styles like this polished Franco Sarto loafer, which comes in 11 colors, there’s a loafer for everyone.
While black is the classic choice, browns, tans and whites are just as versatile, and Collins showed how to wear lighter colored loafers with a pretty dress on these summer days. Find your perfect pair of loafers below before fall hits and shelves inevitably get cleared.
