For a casual summer look, it is generally accepted that loafers should be worn barefoot. But fashion has no strict rules and it's important to feel comfortable in what you're wearing: there are many occasions when it's appropriate to slip your feet into comfortable socks. For a fashionable look, or simply because the weather dictates it, thin socks will add a touch of sophistication to your outfit. At the office or for a casual evening out, it's always more comfortable to wear socks with loafers to keep your feet from freezing in rain or when temperatures drop. In winter or mid-season, the loafer-sock combo will be a formidable fashion ally.

Let's start with the most classic socks: neutral-coloured socks made of cotton or fine wool. They are discreet and won't steal the show from your loafers. They are also comfortable and breathable, ideal for your everyday looks. If you want to add a touch of colour or originality to your outfit, you can opt for printed socks. However, choose minimalist prints that don't clash with the colour of your loafers.

For a formal look, glitter socks, polka dot and elegant fishnet knee-high socks are also options to explore. How to match colours for a successful look? It's important to play with contrasts by choosing socks that contrast with the colour of your loafers. The trio we think is the best: brown loafers and navy blue socks, black loafers and red socks and finally black patent loafers and white cotton socks.
