The Flat-Shoe Trend Celebrities Are Wearing on Repeat This Fall

Of all the shoe trends there are each season, flat-shoe trends are the ones that always seem to come back around every few years—ballet flats, mules, and brogues, for example. But perhaps the most likely style to keep coming back around over and over is loafers. We never get sick of them, and we never get rid of them when we're cleaning out our closets.

Loafers are classic and cool, and there are plenty of little tweaks that brands can make to them so that they feel especially fresh. This year, it's adding a lug sole. But flat penny loafers and the like are great, too, and they'll never go out of style. Obviously, celebrities have different aesthetics and shoe preferences, but for one reason or another, they consistently love wearing loafers. Scroll on to see how they're styling them so far this fall, and shop some of our favorite pairs along the way.
