There’s no denying the appeal of jeans, likely the most versatile item in most wardrobes, but wearing them day in, day out can feel a little like Groundhog Day—particularly as we edge nearer to the end of spring. After wearing jeans exclusively with boots (or perhaps slippers) for what felt like forever, we’re looking to switch up our footwear for something more seasonally appropriate. Although sandal weather feels imminent, to get us through the in-between season when there are still plenty of chillier days, we’re wearing loafers.

With the ability to add a polished vibe to any outfit, it’s little wonder that loafers feature in the regular rotations of social media’s sleekest dressers. You can thank Gucci for marking their return to the style agenda a few years back. Still, loafers have proven themselves to be a perennial favourite that will never really go out of style. Though, right now, they’re proving more popular than ever. 

From classic snaffle loafers to the taller, stacked-heel options cropping up, loafers will help transition all of your wares into the new season, but none more so than denim.

We’re pairing jeans and loafers with neutral blazers or basic jersey tops for a faultless everyday look that feels more put-together than the majority of things we’ve worn lately. If you’re keen to try out the look as well and in need of some visual inspiration, we’ve found eight chic examples of how to wear jeans and loafers together for you to peruse below.
