Let the slip-ons add a dapper touch to your party look

When it comes to footwear, loafers are no doubt one of the most underrated shoes around. Versatile and polished, the slip-ons can be worn for almost any occasion, from Casual Fridays to your weekend parties—all you have to do is slip into a pair and you're good to go. But still, when it comes to men's shoes, sneakers or Oxford shoes will always be the top picks. This festive season, we're championing the footwear as the must-have pair in every men's wardrobe—there's no better time to start investing in them. Want to dip your toes in the footwear? Try sticking to the classics with one from Tod's, Jimmy Choo or John Lobb, or the penny loafers from Prada—these plain options are fail-proof! Our advice? Go for designs with a little twist to stand out from a sea of leather shoes. We love the buckle detail on the Saint Laurent piece, the fringes on the Givenchy loafers and the vibrant stripes on Thom Browne's (with platforms for that little height boost). Lastly, if you're all for a notice-me finish, the monogrammed and embroidered velvet pieces from Fendi and Gucci respectively are made for you. Christian Louboutin's fully studded loafers are the ultimate flashy piece—just keep the rest of your get-up toned down to avoid looking OTT.
