From fur Gucci loafers to monogram Fendi ones, luxury labels have some serious styles on show right about now.
But don’t worry if you don’t have a designer bank balance, the high street has some just as cool alternatives.
Teaming a pristine pair of socks with loafers and chinos is a reliable look, ideal for smart dress codes and street style swagger alike.
