Women everywhere anticipate the moment when they can (literally) kick off their heels and feel their toes again.
With open toe season quickly approaching, let’s ditch the uncomfortable heels and go for a more unexpected approach to our footwear options. Mules are having a serious moment this year and the new ‘it’ shoe has created quite the stir.
We can’t get over the ease and comfort this shoe brings, and with all the different styles available, ditch the straps and six- inch heels and opt for a chic backless option that will have you strutting around town like the fashionista you are.
You will find yourself gravitating towards this style due to its eccentric and effortless style and because it will elevate your look for every outing. From ‘90s-inspired metallic to millennial pink, here’s the inspiration you need to stock up on a few pairs for the season.
The Eye-Catching Mule
Metallic shoes are having a moment right now and silver mules are an easy way to add some serious edge to your look. This eye-catching shoe style will quickly become a wardrobe staple and will go with more in your closet than you may assume.
The Elegant Mule
When choosing a mule for a special occasion you’ll definitely want to increase the heel height and go for something a bit more elegant. To achieve this, we recommend exploring luxe suede and satin fabrics with classy detailing like subtle bows and jewels.
The Edgy Mule
For the girl who is low- key but still wants to show some edge to her outfit, a shorter, block heel with mesh is the way to go. This style is sleek and sexy and is perfect for a night out, not to mention you’ll definitely be comfortable the entire night.
The Flat Mule
We all need a great flat in our shoe repertoire, a go to when you have ten seconds to throw on a pair of shoes and get out the door. A satin mule adds a touch of fun to an outfit, but still says, “I have business to take care of.” Looking smart and polished is exactly what a satin or leather flat mule will give you.
The Vibrant Mule
A vibrant mule is perfect for the bold woman who loves channeling her inner Carrie Bradshaw by strutting her stuff in a statement shoe. If this sounds like you, a hot pink mule with floral detailing is all you need this season. This style goes with everything from a crisp white tee and jeans to a flirty, floral dress, easily making you the liveliest woman in the room.
