Emma Roberts Wore the "Boring" Shoe Trend That's Quietly Been Gaining Ground

Sorry if this offends you, but for the longest time, I considered loafers a "boring" shoe style. I have nothing against them but never really thought of them as cool or current. Now, though, that the classic shoes are having a bit of a renaissance this season, and in seeing how Emma Roberts recently styled her pair, I may be sold on them for good. The American Horror Story actress stepped out in Los Angeles recently wearing a pair of heeled loafers in such a chic, polished ensemble that it left me searching for a pair of my own.

Roberts opted for a block-heel pair from Freda Saldavor and styled the style in a very '70s retro-cool way: alongside a denim button-front miniskirt, brown knit tee, and cat-eye sunglasses. She seems to favor the classic shoe style, as evidenced by a recent outfit involving a fun leopard-print pair that we quickly dubbed the It flats of fall 2018. To see how Roberts styled her loafers and then shop her whole look—along with some similar shoe styles from Freda Salvador—keep reading.
