Head Over Heels

Keep the change in an elevated take on the classic penny loafer.

It's true that a penny saved is a penny earned, so you can rightly call your intention to scoop up of-the-moment penny loafers in a variety of textures and tones a "savings plan." Seen on the winter runways of Alexander Wang and Tommy Hilfiger in styles ranging from tasseled and classic to metallic and evening-perfect, heeled loafers (many with coin-ready slits) are among the season's most splurgeworthy—and wearable—trends to pair with denim or a dress. So, hit the stores, but be sure to verge far from your grandpa's leisure shoes and Michael Jackson's old-school dance kicks. Instead, bank on pretty-preppy, elevated loafers to both appear current and store your meter money. Let’s just say, a piggy bank never looked this chic.
