Summer Footwear | Contrasting Suede Tassel Loafers

Johnston & Murphy Ellington Moc Toe Loafers
[tps_header] Summer footwear typically consists of canvas sneakers, espadrilles, flip-flops and loafers. The latter are my go-to almost year-round, however; in the summer I feel that it’s appropriate to add a little “punch” to your slip-on kicks. Without stepping into smoking slipper territory with stitched emblems of crowns and such, adding a loafer with a contrasting tassel can add style, depth and some needed character to what “could be” an otherwise boring shoe. The two pair of loafers in the feature are the Johnston & Murphy Ellington Suede Moc Toe (available online here & here). Be sure to check out both looks for a bit of style inspiration as your venture into the world of contrasting tassel loafers (plus both pair are on sale).

You can shop these looks at the bottom of each page.[/tps_header]

The Tan Color Family Contrast

If you consider yourself a style novice or even a traditionalist, one of the easiest contrasting tassel combination to execute is in tan/brown where tan is the base shoe color. Conversely, if you’re looking for a true classic, opt for a shoe with a cinnamon brown base with tan tassels. Below are a few tips for rocking the light style like the ones featured here;

  • As with this look, use this shoe as your accent color. Traditionally, you’d wear a camel leather loafer with a blue-grey suit, however; you can achieve a similar and more worldly look with this combination
  • To add some uniformity to the look, pairing a watchstrap in the same color-family as your tassels will do the trick
  • If you’re not a suit guy, a pair dark wash jeans or white or blue chinos pair well with these loafers
  • For the suited guy, rock these with grey, navy or a khaki suit (for that all khaki everything look)
