    Isabel Marant£430

    Last year Laura bought a similar pair and she hasn’t stopped wearing them. These have a fold-down back so you can opt to wear them as a regular loafer too.

    If you are on the fence these are a great interim buy, to try the trend out. We love the fun green, but they also come in a practical black.

    Tod's

    Tods£410

    One of our top picks, white is a bold choice, but is actually a tasteful alternative to black in the summer – and these will look appropriate with even your most floaty dresses.

    Bally£510

    Like the Isabel Marant pair, these have a foldable option so effectively you are getting a two-for-one deal. Just imagine the cost-per-wear saving!

    Le Monde Beryl£275

    An acceptable cross between a slipper and a loafer. The soft velvet means you can easily wear them in the evening too, to smarten up your most casual classics.

    J. Crew£138

    A great price point for a real leather loafer, they also come in navy with a pretty red trim, but we feel the black version will be more timeless and you’ll get more wear out of them.

    Clergerie£525

    There is something quite punky about this Clergerie studded black pair. We think they’ll add a cool edge to even the most classic of outfits.

    Gucci£515

    The loafer that started it all. If you are going to invest in the backless loafer trend, we cannot recommend these highly enough – choose from silk, printed canvas, even velvet and suede. However if you are looking for something long-lasting we would always go for a leather pair.

    & Other Stories£79

    When it comes to finding gems on the high street, we always stick to the mantra ‘keep it simple’. This & Other Stories pair is well-crafted and fuss-free, so they look more expensive than they actually are.

    Valentino£650

    We still love a rockstud, and we also love the delicate detail of these on a sturdy design. Also the slight heel will mean this loafer is likely to outlast most others, as it isn’t as close to the ground so is less likely to get damaged.

    Backless Loafers

    There are few shoes we rely on as heavily as our backless loafers. In winter we wear them from time to time with a fishnet sockette, but spring is where they really come into their own. You can team them with anything and everything, from a summer dress to your trusted trench and jeans. They are dressy but easy to pull off and even easier to put on. Trust us when we say these will become your spring go-tos.
