The Tory Burch Penny Loafer
What: The Tory Burch Penny Loafer

Why it's hot: I think this pretty much cements it. When you need a flat shoe of any kind, Tory Burch is the first place to look. The Tory Burch label seems to be coming out with inventive new takes on the flat each season, and this new Penny Loafer is just the latest in a long line of Tory Burch flat shoes that are at once classic, stylish and modern. And, beyond the style and utility of Tory Burch flat shoes, there's the popularity factor -- more often than not, the newest Tory Burch flat shoe becomes the newest department store sell-out item within months of its debut.

What to wear it with: The Tory Burch Penny Loafer -- currently available in Black, Bison Brown and a delicious Tory Red -- is crafted from Saffiano leather with a 1" wooden heel and a subtle goldtone Tory Burch logo nestled in where the penny would normally reside. These shoes are perfect for creating an updated tomboy look. Try pairing them with a button down and a slouchy skirt, or your favorite boyfriend jeans.

This classic look isn't going anywhere, so these cute loafers will be a go-to item for seasons to come. Stylist to the stars, and former Rachel Zoe acolyte, Brad Goreski was quoted on the Tory Burch blog praising the return of the penny loafer: "Penny Loafers have come back in a big way! They look great with jeans, a T-shirt and a cardigan but even better with a flirty skirt, blouse, tights and a well-fitted blazer. I am a big fan of a good-girl-gone-bad look." Super fun.
