Coffee Break: Loraine Bit Loafer

We’ve featured this loafer before, and for good reason – it’s one of the highest rated loafers on the Nordstrom website (almost 600 good reviews!). There are a ton of colors on sale for under $100, in Sam Edelman’s usual wide size range: sizes 4-13 in medium and wide sizes.

A number of the sale colors are velvet (including this gorgeous red raspberry velvet, above) — which only begs the question: in what months can you wear velvet? A quick Google shows me lots of random blogs declaring you can wear it year-round, but should avoid it in very hot or very cold weather.

For my $.02, especially if velvet shoes live at the office, you can wear them during jacket weather (roughly October – April, but as early as September and as late as May). What are your thoughts, readers? Would you think oddly of someone wearing velvet shoes in spring?

The pictured shoe is $60, at Nordstrom; you can find even more colorways at Zappos and Amazon. (No other stores seem to have the deep discounts Nordstrom is offering, though.)
