The thing that really captures my attention in this photo, aside from her casual cool demeanor, retro Ray-Ban sunglasses, and casually slung, chain bag, are those high-heeled loafers. I’m intrigued by them (and haven’t seen them around for ages). Perhaps this is a good sign that we’ll see more of this shoe in Fall 2011. Maria (above) styled her loafers to go with a menswear shirt and cuffed jeans, then added feminine details with a petite chain bag, long leaf and pearl necklace and an open neckline. It’s casually pulled-together in a way that is very accessible to all of us.

I have a tiny crush on these Juicy Couture loafers, because they take the classic and put a twist on it. If you’re wondering how to style them, these shoes work with jeans, wider 70’s silhouette pants, straight skirts and classic trousers. I know we’re a month or two away from even considering transitional dressing from summer-to-fall (trust me, I’m not wishing summer away – not even close), but these would make worthy candidate for your fall shopping list.
What do you think? Would you wear a high-heeled loafer?
