Loafers have always been the footwear of choice for brainy girls with a preppy bent, and now they're making their way into the office as a polished alternative to your go-to pumps. The latest iterations are sleek and sinuous, with just enough wow factor—gold hardware, suede tassels—to steer clear of frumpytown. Pair them with cropped trousers or a midi skirt to add a menswear spin to your 9-to-5 look while still maintaining your #girlboss status.
