There's a relaxed casualness to a pair of leather shoes without laces. The kind of ease that goes hand in hand with the cozy textures and fabrics of fall. The question is what type suits you best—classic loafers or some modern monk straps?

How to Wear It

These handsome shoes pair nicely with chinos, denim and most can be dressed up with trousers or a suit as long as your pants don't have too much of a break. Give them an added layer of texture by sporting them with some patterned socks.

What to Look for

Right now, suede styles and rich colors are the styles to cop. And because you can easily wear them without socks, make sure the insides are nicely finished.
