At one time or another, we've all likely struggled to pick a pair of shoes to style with an OOTD, which is why adding classic evergreen options that will complement practically anything in your closet will be an investment your future self will thank you for. The pair of shoes to have your eye on right now? A timeless pair of black loafers.

Taylor Swift recently wore a pair as part of a monochromatic look in New York City that was a nod to her Reputation era style circa 2017. Swift strolled the streets with her girl gang pals Gigi Hadid, Blake Lively, and the Haim sisters in a black ensemble capped off by her practical footwear, proving that this comfortable shoe can work with any outfit, any time of year. We’ve seen similar styles on everyone from Olivia Wilde and Katie Holmes to Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid, signaling this trend is here to stay — and belongs in our closets.  

If you don’t already own a pair of black loafers, now’s the time. We found several styles available at Nordstrom similar to Swift’s, and they start at just $33. 

This loafer style by Free People is almost identical to Swift’s, and we’re guessing it’s a fraction of the price. Several shoppers said that the shoes are easy to walk in and versatile, with one writing they’re “cute, comfortable, and can be worn with so many things.” They feature a leather exterior and interior and a rubber sole with a one-inch platform for a bit of added height, too.

If you tend to worry about the potential blisters that can happen as the result of a new pair of shoes, this mule style is a great alternative to an enclosed back loafer. The classic penny style combined with the block heel and square toe makes them “a keeper,” according to one shopper who also added that they’re “so versatile and comfortable.”
