You know you have found the right pair of shoes, when you wear them for 6 days in a row (that's a lot coming from someone who probably has more shoes than sense). Norwegian-born blogger and Vogue contributor Hanneli Mustaparta has teamed up with European shoe giant Deichmann for a limited edition capsule collection. The 10 pairs are available exclusively online, and your wallet will thank you, because the shoes come at a very sensible price. Whether you like chunky soles or want to feel like cinderella for the day, there is something to tickle everyone's fancy.
In my first look, I tried to style the loafers in a fun and girly way. As a child, I thought that this type of shoe is something I would only see my grandfather wear (no offence, paps). Then again, as a child I also thought skinny jeans were an unforgivable faux-pas, and I never imagined myself wearing skirts that were longer than my knees. Look at me now. This look is my attempt to show that loafers can be fun, young and slightly rock 'n' roll. Or is that taking it a bit too far?
This pink Mango dress has been my summer essential and it's something I definitely want to keep wearing during the seasonal transition. On a chillier day, I'd just add a pair of opaque tights to this look, and swap the leather jacket to a black coat.
I do love playing around with silhouettes and different styles, so for my second outfit I went for a more casual, almost androgynous look. It's a more classic way to style loafers, yet still not quite the less than inspiring 9-5 uniform I had envisioned as a little girl. The loafers are an incredibly easy but chic twist to an otherwise very classic outfit. I paired the shoes with my all-time fave ASOS denims and my new H&M Trend boyfriend jacket.
I wanted to try something different and got inspired by ASOS to create my own 360 rotating image to showcase the shoes from every angle. Personally I think loafers are an all-time classic and will never really go out of style. Sometimes the star shoe of the season is the one that unexpectedly works with a really diverse range of outfits, be it really girly or more serious. Other than the loafers, I already have my eyes on all three pairs of the ankle boots within the collection. Ankle boots, too, never go out of style - surely they are an investment?
