When winter rolls around, boots can sometimes seem like the only appropriate shoes to wear. Sandals are pushed to the back of the closet, and those open-toed flats just won’t cut it. But if you want to change things up from your standard boots, try a pair of classic loafers.

One of the biggest trends we saw last year were the wildly popular Gucci styles. After all, they’re a classic wardrobe staple that can also withstand the cold winter months. Fashion girls have been wearing theirs with everything from T-shirts and jeans to ankle-grazing dresses. Whether you’re heading to the office or the airport, you can bet loafers will be in heavy rotation this season. Want to see our favorite styles?
