Hot apple cider, haunted houses, cute bundled up trick-or-treaters, and pumpkin carving- all sure signs Halloween is near! The way Santa Claus is associated with Christmas- whenever I hear the word Halloween, black and orange instantly come to mind. In honor of this spooktastic day, I thought we could take a look at how some of our favorite celebrities rock black and orange, on their arm!
Normally, I reserve loafers for my Grandmother (no offense G-Ma, they are comfortable so I’ll give you that!). However, the loafer has gotten a makeover for fall 2011. The lifted loafer is all the rage right now- wear it as a platform or peep-toe, add on tassels or wear it in this seasons hottest suede colors. From elegant to in-your-face, loafers can add some flair to an otherwise plain outfit.
What do you think about the loafer look? Would you rock it out, or is this trend better suited for Grandma? Comment back to let us know your thoughts!
