The style preppy, so common and used by practically all royals in its version more sweet or ladylike, it is easier to adapt to our day to day than we can believe. No need for shirts with a Peter Pan collar – which we love – or pleated skirts and ruffles left and right. Many times we can give that final touch simply by choosing the right footwear.

One of the best options is to bet on loafers or Mary Janes. Yes, they may sound like a very classic shoe right off the bat, but nothing is further from the truth. Because we have consciously chosen models with wide heels, some platform and, on many occasions, track sole. To give us a few extra inches at the same time breaks with the most classic aesthetics.

Women's leather loafers with strap in black

One of the star brands when it comes to leather shoes is MartinelliAnd these loafers with the serrated sole and details on the instep are the best. The gold chain together to the fringes gives it a much more carefree air. 129.95 euros.

Women's Alpe Leather Loafers Stirrup Embellishment

What we like the most about these leather loafers (in addition to their serrated super sole) is that, although they are also black, they are completely different from the rest because of their contrast stitching and details. 99.95 euros.

Loafers by Cuplé

Women's Black Patent Leather Loafers

The detail that has made us fall in love at first sight has been the finish in patent leather and the gold brand logo on the instep. Made of cowhide leather, the track-style sole is great to give it a more aggressive touch. 119 euros.

Camper Mary Janes

Women's Black Heel Camper Mary Janes

Camper It is one of those brands that always takes its models to the extreme and these Mary Janes are the perfect example of this. But we love it, because although they maintain the essence of this type of shoe, it totally moves away from that sweet aesthetic with its super sole and platform. 145 euros.

Loafers by Unisa

Unisa Women's Black Engraved Leather Loafers

Another of the skin brands par excellence, Unisa. We liked this moccasin model because although it does not have as much platform or height as some of the other models, its instep and heel they are really pretty. Thanks to its engraved leather details and metallic ornaments. 125 euros.

Loafers by Aldo

Aldo Women's Pink Square Toe Loafers 2

If you are looking for a lighter model to break a bit with the black, these Aldo loafers are the key. The detail of the ribbon on the instep, as well as the contrasting sole and heel they have won us. 79.95 euros.

Pedro Miralles loafers

Women's Leather Loafers In Green

These loafers stand out for the color contrast green-brown, which in turn combines perfectly with the gold of the chain. Since, although of a very dark tonality, the skin is green, not black. The most “classic” option within the less classic. 145 euros.
