Tassel Loafers Are A Must-Have Addition To Womens' Arsenal Of Flats This Fall (PHOTOS)

Flats are an important part of any woman's shoe collection. While heels look lovely, we all know that running around town, commuting to work and chasing after children in stilettos just ain't possible (in our world, at least). Last fall, we were relieved to slip our tired puppies into smoking slippers, and we've seen flat oxfords and even penny loafers on the fashionable set. Of course, ballet flats are our go-to, stuff-em-into-your-bag-just-in-case shoes. This season the new iteration of comfy-yet-chic shoes is the tassel loafer.

Now let's be clear: These aren't your dad's golf shoes. Rather, we are talking about an irreverrent take on the preppy classic. Think glitter, metallics and lush velvet, all topped with a tassel. Pair them with short skirts, or skinny cropped pants for a foray into the land of nerd chic.

Here, seven pairs of tassel loafers that will have you putting your pumps in storage.
