How to wear moccasins!
Hello everyone. The weather’s rainy and so is the fashion/beauty scenario : it’s raining trends! While a lot of retro things are making a come back such as the choker, some new age fads have also found their ground, such as clown contouring makeup style. This article discusses another trend that has invaded all markets and should be barging into your closet too! Moccasins 🙂 Moccasins are the latest shoes that we have a crush on. They are the perfect antidote for when the weather is warm for boots, yet too cold for flats. They come in a variety of styles – some with fringe, some with laces – the list goes on.
Loafers vs Moccasins
It is important to know the difference between loafers and moccasins and hence keep your fashion dictionary up to date. 😛 Moccasins are strictly made of leather (the leather may be faux, deer skin, etc) whereas loafers can be made of polyester or any such material. They necessarily have some laces on top whereas loafers are more casual, without laces. Here’s a picture to understand the difference :

Lastly, here are some tips to take care:
i.Always keep your look casual, these are casual shoes and look best with shorts, skirts and jeans.
ii. Do wipe your shoes with a wet cloth to keep them clean. Since they are made of leather related materials, they need to be wiped clean every now and then.
iii. Avoid them in the rainy season as water ruins leather.
