Loafers used to get us thinking of comfortable footwear for dads of a certain age. No longer. The shoes previously reserved for fatherly figures and private school teens are making appearances on the most stylish gals ever since Alexander Wang paraded a metallic version down his fall 2011 runway. Stefano Pilati updated the style when he showed loafers emblazoned with a metallic plate at his spring 2012 Yves Saint Laurent show. Pair them with cropped pants to show off a bit of ankle, and when summer comes along they'll be the perfect compliment to a cute pair of shorts.
