Top 5 Lifted Loafers: Separate the Women From the Boys

I find things stolen from the boys very sexy. Your husband’s tailored shirt worn rolled up with a pair of hot pants; his jacket casually draped over a sequined dress. And who can forget Coco Chanel famously wearing Boy Capel’s cardigan cinched at the waist with yards of pearls!?

But shoes, those are one item that has always been difficult to nab from the men. Wingtip dress shoes don’t exactly always translate, but things are about to change. Fall’s twist on the classic loafer offers that refreshing sense of gender-bending appeal.

1. Tabitha Simmons Joan Tassel-Toe Pump: Perhaps these are named after the sexy Mad Men character. The retro vixen meets the dapper gentleman on these pumps.

2. Yves Saint Laurent Metal-Plate Loafer Pump: YSL is king of louche feminity, often with a masculine spin, and these plated pumps are no exception.

3. Gucci Suede Bi-Color Tassel Pump: A soft and classy take, blushing taupe suede sweetens a strong shoe.
At Bergdorf Goodman for $790.

4. Manolo Blahnik Darby: Spectators get in on the action with this chic felt-and-leather lace-up. Annie Hall would approve.

5. Fendi Wuthering Heights Laceless Oxford Pump: So quirky and architectural, this is the statement-maker of the bunch. The oxford has just elevated to the next level.
