Fall Trend Alert! Bright Patent Loafers

October 1, 2008 • Accessories


So it appears we are dedicating this entire week’s of fall fashion alerts to footwear. One trend that catches me by surprise is the patent penny loafer. For years I have gravitated to the more adult version, the driving moccasin, but I am loving the look of patent penny loafers in bright colors, not just the expected black or brown. Am I the only one who remembers my mother swapping out my shinny pennies for dimes just in case I needed to make an emergency call? (Have I just totally given away my age?)

About a month ago I saw a Cole Haan ad in a magazine for their new patent penny loafer and I must admit, I am coveting them in blue or purple.

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Patent Leather Driving Loafer $245
