    Fashion has fallen back in love with flat shoes (phew), and we’re quite happy to follow suit since spotting this chic pair of penny loafers.

    Comfy, versatile and unmistakably cool, there is nothing we don’t love about this monochrome pair of flats.

    Street stylers have long been savvy to the loafer revival, seen rocking every which version over the past two seasons, from suede fringe styles, high-shine pastel patent designs (yes, really), and even snake print.

    No suprise then to see this style has trickled through and is now one of the coolest ways to work the flat shoe trend.

    Yes, the masculine shape may seem daunting, but when teamed with some slim-fit, ankle-grazing jeans and a crew neck knit, this style is far more flattering than you might think.

    Those feeling brave will want to try teaming theirs with socks, and for everyone else, bare ankles is the way to go.

    The best bit? The cool metal detailing on the front is actually inspired by a watch wristband (the clue is in the name) and adds an even cooler edge to your look.

    So with all that in mind, we think this pair of flat shoes will be worth every penny spent and should be snapped up, pronto.
