If you’re a regular user of the World Wide Web, you’re probably going to recognise the trademark Gucci loafers (link here). Heralded as the blogger’s uniform, it’s impossible not to know of it. You might’ve even jumped on the bandwagon and got yourself a pair. If so, lucky you. But for us less flush, well… a good pair of Gucci loafer dupes might be all we need.
Trendy, elegant and versatile, the Gucci loafer has taken the fashion world by storm, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t affected by it. So as poor girls do, I got myself a lookalike, and at last, I see why every girl needs a pair of Gucci loafer dupes. They are magic. They somehow always manage to glam an outfit up.

The goal of this outfit is to bring out the Gucci loafer dupes, so begin with a simple Long-Sleeved Top (link here), not unlike the one from my previous post. Choose one that is loose-fitting, and roll up the sleeves for the casual factor. A plain, beige colour works best and won’t steal the attention from the rest of the outfit.
As the weather cools, swap your skirts and dresses for a good ol’ pair of leggings. They don’t have to be pricey ones from Lululemon. The Black Jersey Leggings (link here) I’m wearing, for example, are just from H&M. All you need is pair that is no-frills and black in colour, and you’re all set.
There are actually several varieties of the real Gucci loafer from the brand, all unique in small ways to suit different tastes. I’m drawn to the Gucci Jordaan Leather Loafer (link here) in particular, but the rest of the internet is crazy about the popular Gucci Princetown Leather Slipper (link here). Choose your favourite and find a dupe of it. There are tons both online and offline.
One of the most iconic details of the Gucci loafer is the horsebit. You’ll find it in many of their shoes, like the Brixton Leather Horsebit Loafer (link here). I kept this in mind and left no stone unturned until I found the perfect pair of Gucci loafer dupes. The Dorothy Perkins Black Lola Snaffle Loafers (link here) not only hits the design spot on, but is also friendly on the wallet. Better snag it up now because it’s selling out fast!
Lastly, finish off with a small crossbody bag. I have with me my trusty H&M Black Small Shoulder Bag (link here) that has proved versatile in many of my previous outfits. It especially goes well with the Gucci loafer dupes, with both pieces sporting a statement gold detail: the zipper of the bag, and the horsebit of the shoes.
If you’ve ever been lost for idea of how to dress, then trust me, a simple pair of Gucci loafer dupes is all you need. Or, y’know, the real deal, if you can afford it. Gucci has got the world hooked and it’s no question how. You’ve got to give it to them for coming up with the trend. What about you? Have you fallen for the magic of the Gucci loafer too?
