How to Style Chunky Loafers

In recent years, chunky loafers have been established as a stylish piece in a classic and timeless wardrobe. This is not shocking considering they’re simple, comfortable, and can easily make anything you wear look professional and thought-out.

Whether you go for the iconic, and highly sought-after Prada loafers, or a less expensive substitute, getting yourself a pair will prove to be a wise investment – no matter what season you wear them in!

Chic Chunky Loafers Outfit Ideas

Choosing the right pair or knowing how to wear chunky loafers is where you might be feeling confused. So we’re breaking it down and detailing our favorite chunky loafer outfits below!

Slip skirt + oversized sweater

get the look:

Making a statement, chunky loafers are the ideal counterbalance to a sleek midi skirt, as demonstrated here. All you need to finish the look is a cozy knit sweater for the fall and winter months. 

The outfit provides the warm and comfort you’re looking for on a chilly day, yet still makes a statement wherever you go.

Denim shorts + ankle socks

Jean shorts are one of those summer items that every trendsetter should have. Looser-fitting jean shorts are on-trend and look great with a pair of chunky and simple white ankle socks. 

This outfit will definitely have you joining in on the fashion influencer street style looks this year.

Chunky loafers, leggings + layers

get the look:

So you want to feel comfortable and chic? Try pairing chunky loafers with black leggings, then add elevated layers. 

We love the different shades of brown from the turtleneck to the blazer to the long wool coat. This outfit has an old-money, elevated vibe, but is comfortable enough to wear to Thanksgiving dinner. 

Feminine dress + chunky loafers

get the look:

A feminine dress with chunky loafers is an unexpected combination, but it’s a clear winner. A dress, whether flowy or fitted, always looks elevated with loafers. 

Put on your favorite flowy dress with loafers and you’ll be ready to take on the day – shopping, brunch with friends, school drop-off, you name it. We love the look of the black bag to balance the black loafers and tie the outfit together.

Mini skirt, tee + vest

get the look:

Miniskirts and loafers complement each other like bread and butter. The bulkier shoe effectively counterbalances the feminine, dainty skirt. 

Additionally, while ankle socks are optional, they really pull the look together.For the spring and summer months, this is a cute outfit that can be worn on a day out with friends.

Grab yourself an iced coffee and show off your miniskirt meets loafers look!

Are chunky loafers business casual?

Yes! Any type of loafer, including chunky loafers, can be worn with business casual outfits. While they do make a statement, chunky loafers are still professional when paired with other business casual clothing like blazers, trousers, and smart blouses. 

Chunky loafers are an excellent choice for the office because they provide a trendy element to your wardrobe, but still have a formal feel. Check out these outfits below for ideas on what to wear to your next business meeting.

Oversized blazer, sweater dress + knee-high socks

get the look:

This outfit has a smart, sophisticated vibe, and looks great with the oversized blazer and high-fashion bag. You’ll look like a boss as you walk into the office, and you’re bound to make good impressions at your next meeting.

This is a chic outfit to wear to the office or in the city. Add a pair of black sunglasses and a black purse for an eye-catching look.

If you feel the outfit is a little too “leggy” for your office setting, go with a longer sweater dress or wear black tights instead of the socks. 

White button-down, jeans + loafers

get the look:

For an elegant, sophisticated style, we recommend a classic white button-down. The loafers and button-down go together to create a business-appropriate outfit, so show up to your next meeting and impress your colleagues with your style.

If jeans are a no-go at your office, swap them for a pair of straight-leg pleated trousers in a muted color tone like green or navy. Or, go with classic black.  

Leather trousers + wool coat

get the look:

Leather pants are a wardrobe staple that we love, love, love. Pair them with your chunky loafers, and you’ll look elevated, modern, and polished.

Rather than leather leggings, straight-leg leather pants provide a fresh and bold look for those of you wanting to stand out. The added sweater-over-the-shoulders ties in a preppy aesthetic so you can show up to your business meetings and events in style.

Blazer, jeans, + chunky loafers

get the look:

This blazer outfit is timeless and classy, and can be worn just about anywhere. It’s comfy and easy to pull together, yet you look like you planned your outfit with thoughtful consideration. Gold jewelry does wonders for this type of outfit and the loafers are the cherry on top.

Add a handbag and a pair of sunglasses, and you’ll have the look down. 

Trench coat, stirrup leggings, + loafers

get the look:

Trench coats and long wool coats are back in style and looking classier than ever! These coats bring in a timeless, polished look and really stand out when combined with a pair of chunky loafers.

A good trench coat will keep you warm in the spring and fall, and the stirrup leggings are a dressier legging option for the office and beyond.

Finish the outfit with a cozy turtleneck sweater in a cropped style, or oversized for a modern take. 

Cigarette pants + oversized sweater

get the look:

Even though it may seem obvious, a timeless pair of straight-leg or cigarette pants will come to your rescue whenever you’re having trouble finding the right attire for your loafers. Black pants create a classic look that will never go out of style.

Shiny black, chunky penny loafers are balanced with an oversized knit sweater that has an on-trend stripe detail we love so much. This chunky loafers outfit is chic, effortless, and perfectly minimal.

What do you wear chunky loafers with?

Chunky loafers are a great statement shoe that go best with timeless basics like jeans, oversized sweaters, midi skirts, blazers, denim shorts, casual dresses, and straight-leg trousers. But, no matter the style of your hem, the color scheme of your outfit, or the amount of formality, you can easily wear chunky loafers with any outfit if you get a pair in brown, black, or beige.

Oversized denim jackets are definitely having a moment. The bulky silhouette makes it a perfect jacket choice to pair with chunky loafers, for balance and an elevated look.

An oversized button-down or a simple crewneck sweater looks excellent with stirrup leggings and chunky loafers. This outfit is comfy, yet elevated and the oversized shirt makes the look slightly more casual.

Leather blazer, denim skirt + ankle socks

get the look:

For another edgy look, try a black-and-white color scheme and throw on the leather. A leather blazer with a black denim skirt (or biker shorts) is very on-trend and fashionable. The chunky loafers truly make the outfit complete though, especially with a cute pair of white socks.

Go out for the day (or night!) in this outfit and have a great time.

Classic jeans + leather blazer

get the look:

Of course, blue jeans fall within the timeless category. However, straight-leg styles—whether cropped or full-length—work amazing with chunky loafers. The vintage blue wash offsets the black and the leather blazer is the perfect finishing touch. 

Though it’s simple, this outfit is polished, classic, and we want to copy it immediately. 

Oh, and the Anine Bing bag – nothing but love!

Prada Chunky Loafers Outfit

The iconic Prada leather loafer with a round toe, chunky rubber sole, and triangular plaque front and center is a statement begging to be made. Prada’s thick-soled beauties have a chic, modern, and diverse style.

In a head-turning fashion move, Hailey Bieber wore her Prada loafers with a leather Nour Hammer Gotham coat, cut-off Levi’s, and bright white ankle socks, setting a trend that fashion influencers everywhere wanted to copy. Bella Hadid upped the ante with baggy jeans and a vintage leather waistcoat.

Here’s how you can style your Prada loafers to turn heads in all the right ways. 

Plaid shacket, mini skirt + knee-high stockings

Summer dress + Prada loafers
