Like many girls who follow fashion, I’ll occasionally get kind of obsessed with an “it” luxury item. A few years ago, it was Valentino Rockstuds. Next, I’m on the hunt for booties that are reminiscent of the Chloe Susanna. But right now, I’m obsessed with my (faux) fur-lined loafer slides, which just so happen to be the perfect Gucci Princetown loafer dupe.

And regarding the kangaroo fur, I should mention that Gucci has banned fur beginning with the Spring/Summer 2018 collection. So we’ll see if the Princetown loafers are re-formulated with faux, so to speak.

Here’s the thing, though, even if they go faux, I don’t have the disposable income to spend $1,000 on a pair of shoes at the moment. One day, sure, but right now, I’m all about the “designer-inspired” items.

Luckily, fur-lined slides have been around long enough that you can even find a Gucci Princetown loafer dupe at Target these days. The Steve Madden Jill, though, is my absolute favorite. Steve Madden is one of those brands that’s pretty reliable about creating good quality designer lookalikes, and the Jill loafer is no exception. The fur is faux, and it’s not quite as fluffy as the Gucci version…but hey, for less than 10% of the price, I’ll take it.

I can’t speak to the Gucci Princetown slides, but wearing the Steve Madden Jill loafer basically feels like wearing slippers in public. Plus, they’re super versatile when it comes to styling, from jeans and a tee during warmer seasons to layered looks like this one.

I love layering basic pieces, like this silky cami, boyfriend cardigan and, of course, my trusty BlankNYC leather jacket, but adding one trendy item for interest.
