Fall Trend: Leopard Loafers

Hi loves!

Recently, I've been seeing leopard loafers everywhere.



At first I was a little wary of the trend. I mean, animal print on my feet? I wasn't in love. But then... it struck me. Leopard fever. I started having visions. Visions of loafers with red skinnies and leggings and leather, oh my! That's when I knew I had to get myself a pair. 

The beauty in these leopard loafers is that almost every designer has come up with their own version. The prices range from outrageous ($400) to the cost of a few drinks ($20). 


From left to right:

Stubbs & Wooton, $400 // Nine West, $70 // Gap, $50
Sam Edelman, $150 // Target, $20 // Steve Madden, $80

While the Target shoes are incredibly cute for $20, they probably aren't going to be the most comfortable. Keep in mind that with loafers, you often sacrifice comfort for cost!

Now for some style inspiration.







Is everyone else in love with these loafers like I am?
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Love, Cait

  7. Have not tried leopard loafers yet. They look adorable in the street style looks that you chose here! I would probably go with a look similar to the Nine West pair :)

  12. I actually have the Gap ones and I wear them almost every day. It's getting to the point to where I have to psych myself up to wear other shoes.

  21. I saw a pair of these today when I was out. I picked them up, considered them, and put them down. I figured I wouldn't be able to wear them with much. But now you are making me reconsider! I love all of those looks.

  24. Definitely love this look! I almost bought the Steve Madden ones on sale last fall, but ended up chickening out and getting plain gray...which I love, but they aren't nearly as fun! Maybe I'll upgrade this year :)

  25. I love leopard anything, but I am seeing these all over the place too. And the Target ones will probably be the ones I get...I will probably suffer some blisters, but for $20, I will suck it up! Love all the inspirations too!!
