Around $150: Charles Philip "Sylvie" Tassel Suede Loafers give off a prep school meets eclectic style vibe. The royal blue tassel really adds a pop of color to the otherwise bison brown suede shoe, resulting in the right amount of panache.

Under $50: Urban Outfitters Woven Loafers feel unique, and will instantly give your outfit a not-too-precious look. Add a dose of sartorial style

Designer: Olivia Palermo is wearing Stubbs & Wooten slippers in the photo on the left. Stubbs & Wooten Louie Burgundy V are extremely luxe-looking. The deep, rich burgundy color of the shoe is on trend for fall. You really can't go wrong with a dazzling pair from Stubbs & Wooten - as you can see from the shoes pictured above.
When you're trying to figure out how to style your loafers, I recommend substituting the loafers for your usual ballerina flats. Skinny black cigarette pants work well with velvet loafers. Or, wear a loose fitting blouse with tight, skinny jeans - velvet loafers look fantastic when paired with denim.
