Rag & Bone's take on the trend is likely the simplest, and most classic: Rendered in lush caramel, these will go with everything from swinging skirts to cuffed jeans. ($345 at La Garconne)

Saugus Police
For something a bit less traditional, Pixie Market's white-and-denim brogue-inspired pair is quirky without looking too over-the-top. ($179 at Pixie Market)

For a similarly tasseled look that's a bit more subdued, these traditional dark brown "Karl" loafers are top notch. ($100 at Topshop)

Asos
This worn mustard-yellow color is a surprisingly perfect neutral, and the fringe at the front gives the otherwise simple flat a playful edge. ($109.53 at Asos)

Leave it to Ferragamo to create a party-worthy loafer: This glossy, cherry-red option is bound to catch compliments. (For those less daring, it's also available in black.) ($325 at Nordstom)
