Despite ballet flats and Birkenstock Bostons becoming the must-have summer shoes to add to your capsule wardrobe, Gigi Hadid says your fave loafers still deserve a look in...

Yes we know, they're clunky, a bit heavy, leather and more often attributed to winter and autumn styling, but if Gigi shows us we're allowed to wear them on vacation and beyond, we're sure as hell gonna listen! The model and Next in Fashion host paired hers with the chicest black Miu Miu dress whilst in Malibu on July 26 and the look is everything.

We don't need to tell you that Gigi Hadid's outfits rarely miss, so instead, allow us to show you her latest loafer-centric serve and how to follow her fashion tutelage and recreate to look yourself...

Gigi Hadid's loafers and LBD combo

As mentioned, Gigi Hadid attended the Miu Miu Summer Club on Wednesday, July 26, 2023 at the Malibu pier, wearing a pair of chunky loafers, white socks and a midi-length, Miu Miu bodycon dress, complete with spaghetti straps and some very cool, sunglasses (also from Miu Miu).

The look was oozing '90s fashion in the best way, proving that you can never go wrong with classic styles and silhouettes. For some reason, the white and black accents are also giving Meredith Blake from The Parent Trap—who, now that I'm an adult I appreciate as more of a fashion icon than a villain...

MIL's guide to recreating Gigi's loafer outfit

So, naturally finding a good old pair of loafers is a great place to start. We'd recommend opting for black, either leather or patent like Vagabond Cosmos'—these are actually Kendall Jenner's favorite loafers!

You can also opt for a more old-money, Chanel-inspired pair, with that classic gold or silver buckle.

Then simply pair them with some ankle-length white socks (like Gigi's) for that preppy feel and throw on one of your fave black slip dresses or more of a bodycon style. Thin dreams and a lower neckline are very in right now, so we'd suggest opting for a more statement earring and forgoing a necklace for a very clean, effortless look—this is something we've noticed a lot of celebs doing lately).

The beauty of this overall outfit is how simple it is and versatile. Each element of the ensemble you can pair with other items in your closet—like jeans or shirts—and you can even layer Gigi's look for fall, perhaps with a Hailey Bieber-approve leather jacket for instance.
