Just as black-and-white films always evoke nostalgic feelings and memories of times long gone and the classic Hollywood era, most fashion trends in black and white seem to be particularly classic and therefore elegant.
This also applies to black and white loafers, where the chic colour scheme meets the noble and also very classic shoe shape. It is logical that the shoes are ideal for combining with elegant outfits. But loafers in black and white also go perfectly with casual and cool looks – as Gigi Hadid proves with her surprising styling.
Gigi Hadid pairs black and white loafers with a varsity jacket, tweed shirt and wide-leg pants
At the beginning of November, the model showed up during a walk in New York City with an autumnal look consisting of a varsity jacket, tweed shirt and wide-leg pants. She paired it with the aforementioned black and white loafers.
College jacket? Tweed shirt? Letterman? If you now involuntarily have the image of an old-fashioned school uniform in your mind’s eye in your mind’s eye, then we can give you the all-clear right away. Gigi Hadid’s look may sound preppy at first, but it looks surprisingly cool.
There are several reasons for this: First of all, the varsity jacket (by Awake NY and Carharrt) convinces with modern elements such as the unusual prints. Then there’s the tweed shirt (from Gigi Hadid’s own brand Guest In Residence), which the model doesn’t wear classically ʙuттoned up, but casually open. The shirt deliberately peeks out at the collar as well as at the waistband and under the sleeves of the college jacket. While the jacket and shirt have eye-catching patterns and colors, the T-shirt and trousers are simple and minimalist, which is perfectly matched by the black and white loafers (by Chanel). The cat-eye sunglᴀsses and the handbag by Miu Miu are accessories with their modern and extraordinary silhouettes that give the look the final touch.
It’s not the first time Gigi Hadid has opted for black and white loafers. Back in mid-September, she posted a picture of Guest In Residence’s fall collection on Instagram, in which she wears a striped sweater from the brand, as well as light-colored jeans and said loafers. Back then, coarse socks in gray provided relaxed vibes.
