The Backless Loafer..Save vs Splurge

2.23.2017

Style Theory: The backless loafer has been seeping into footwear trends for a couple of years but is really gaining momentum this Spring/summer. In different colours, embellished or not, they are chic and comfortable and look great with ankle length jeans and a cashmere jumper, blouse or simple tee. They finish off an outfit perfectly and are the ideal style solution if you struggle for shoes that are on trend but also comfortable and cool for the spring.

So the next decision is whether to invest in this style (ie.Splurge) or opt for a high street option..here is my edit of the best..
Gucci Princetown Backless Loafers £430
The original and one of the best but a big investment. These look great with jeans and a sweater and I love them in the street style photo above with the black crochet skirt and black sweater - super chic..
Gucci Princetown Shearling lined loafers £715
So, more 'out there' and a little weird looking at first but once your mind and taste has adjusted to them they look pretty cool on and feel like you are wearing slippers outside!
Gucci Princetown Shearling lined loafers £715
Loving the pink too..
Gucci £480
I have these in the fur version and adore them. They look gorgeous on and I love the rose detail, if you have big feel like me they look less long that the plain ones and are so flattering on. You can match them with almost all colours..definitely ones to splurge on if you are going to splurge and they are cheaper than the classics! 
*On all Gucci shoes size down at least half a size they come up big!
Gucci Princetown Velvet Sipper £530
Now if money was no object these I would buy these too, they are stunning, so eyecatching and look amazing with the purple velvet Gucci bag in the photo above.

Now let's look at the high street versions which are also pretty gorgeous..
River Island £30
Faux leather, but looking every inch super stylish and very Gucci-esque.
River Island £30
I love the (faux) leather and suede look of these loafers, they would look fab in the summer with pale blue ankle length jeans and a white blouse/boho top.

River Island £30
Slightly more 'out there' but these silver leopard print loafers look amazing on, wear with jeans and a simple black boho blouse and let the shoes do the talking.
Boden £98
These look so so designer and very Gucci-esque and have 20% off today with the code 2C2V (making them £78.40) All you need to do is match them with a navy back or navy blazer then mix up the rest of the your outfit, a pair of ankle length jeans, a pick shirt and a navy blazer would look fabulous.
Boden £98
Love these so much too (and don't forget 20% off with code 2C2V)
Dune £75
A fabulous 'tribute' to the Gucci loafers, these are beautifully soft leather and tick the box for a fraction of the price.
Dune £75
Loving the gold too, they would look fab on tanned feet with dresses or jeans.
Office £62
Super cosy and look gorgeous on, these Office loafers will be useful in the spring and cooler summer days.
I would highly recommend dabbling in the backless loafer trend, I absolutely adore mine and cannot wait until this crazy weather ends and I can wear them more..here is how I have styled mine..




Are you a fab of the backless loafer, have you bought a pair yet or did you wear them the first time around (like I did) and are not sure you want to revisit the trend?

As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxx

  29. Spartan Keto This is one of the most common weight loss myths out there. It is illogical to think that your health and weight are going to be in balance if your nutrition consists mainly of twinkies, chips, and donuts. Sure you can burn it off by exercising, but most people whose diet consists of mainly junk food are probably not disciplined enough to stick to a workout routine. I do know a few people who, from the outside, look like they are in good shape, because they are not "fat, but who have high cholesterol.

  36. Best Back Massager Other electric back massagers are handheld and look very much like a regular shower-head. A button is pressed and the tip either vibrates, rolls, beats, or kneads. Handheld electric back massagers are great for isolated aches and pains and are more flexible in treating muscle pains for it can be used to treat thighs and arms as well. Some handheld electric massagers come with infra-red devices that claim to sooth and rejuvenate tired muscles. These handheld massagers are great for massaging not only yourself, but your loved ones as well.
