Hugs & Co Driving Loafers Green
Ah, the driving loafer.  Still the most under-appreciated shoe during summertime and yet still one of the most elegant silhouettes of all time.  Why do we not associate this stylish silhouette with the summer months?!  As much as I wish summer had the tendency to deliver scorching hot sunshine from beginning to end, it's simply not the case.  Instead, we have bursts of St Tropez in between bouts of Edinburgh (sorry guys).  With this in mind, sandals aren't a viable option every day.  I'll admit, I've been loving adding stylish sneakers to my shoedrobe of late, however they still pose a frustrating problem: laces.  And this, ladies and gents, is where driving loafers enter stage left and ready to steal the spotlight...

Hugs & Co Driving Green Tassel Loafers
There's something very stylish about a pair of driving loafers and especially when they're in suede.  With this in mind, they're ideal for those brighter days when rain isn't forecast, but bumping into people you know absolutely is - happy you didn't throw on those old Adidas sneakers now?  Personally, I own a few pairs of Hugs & Co suede driving loafers now and each of them tend to be worn when running errands around the city.  They're my go-to for everyday wear that promises to be comfortable while still looking stylish!  Let's face it, during the summertime we tend to stay out for longer and so comfort really is a must.  A really sweet way to style driving loafers for summer is by pairing them with a dress; preferably of a short length to add a feminine touch to the outfit.  This broderie anglaise wrap dress is perfect for exactly that reason.  However, slim-fitting cropped trousers are also a lovely option, especially when paired with linen tops, or ruffled loose-fitting blouses.  If you're wanting to ensure a feminine touch and flattering balance, try to avoid styling them with jeans, or anything too loose-fitting on the lower half.
