Not the most attractive sounding shoe in the world, the loafer, albeit evolved from a slipper, is fast becoming the new ballet pump. Where the safe and easy ballet pump used to be the go-to shoe for comfort and style, now the loafer is taking on that role in a slightly more edgy way. Take a look at these celebs rocking the look.

Rochelle Wiseman makes a wise choice with these black suede loafers adding a quirky edge to her dressed down outfit.

Alexa Chung works her signature preppy chic look by incorporating a pair of patent penny loafers into her outfit. By wearing them with bare legs she draws attention to her shoes and makes the outfit even more nerdy chic, in a way only Alexa can do!

Rihanna works an off duty style and matches her shirt to her shoes in typical US style. The fresh white pair of loafers gives her outfit that on trend fashionista edge
