Cheap Thrill: Leather Loafers With a Twist

Oh, look, it’s another 60-degree day in the dead of November. While there will be plenty of time to contend with slush and ice next month (and for many months after), embrace the unusual “heatwave” and free your feet from their restrictive boot hold. Emblazoned with cheetah-calf pony hair, these smart loafers from New York-based shoe designer Matt Bernson are like a little black dress for your feet; slide them on with a relaxed pair of jeans and a simple sweater for the everyday grind, or wear them with a black pleated skirt and turtleneck for a gamine take on a classic feminine look.
