Who always has time for fussy straps, buckles, and zippers everyday?! Introducing the latest (new and improved) shoe trend that just made life a whole lot easier. I present the Mule! A “mule,” backless and often closed-toe, can be any heel height from flat to high. While I normally prefer a heel, this trend has me super eager to travel down the land of flats! Slip in to a pair of mules and still rack up the style points!
The return of the mule may leave you skeptic. Are you imagining the 90’s clogs that were seen on Buffy, the girls in Clueless, and my personal favorites, Brenda, Donna, and Kelly from the iconic show 90210? Or possibly the notion of a mule conjures up images of your grandma playing BINGO?! Erase those horrid yet nostalgic snapshots from your mind and think more SJP. Carrie Bradshaw had a pair on at any given time of day and made it look fabulous.
I have been perusing the internet and stumbled upon so many different mules in different colors and embellishments. From bows, to embroidery, the extra details are the perfect way to enhance a simple outfit. If you worship black and wear it often, then an adorned mule will become your new best friend. It’s just what the doctor ordered for a little more flash and sass!
If you love a heel, I suggest pairing your favorite open-toe mules with a skirt for work or date night. It will accentuate your gams amazingly. If you prefer flats, your favorite mule will pair perfectly with cropped trousers or even denim, for a stylish weekend look. The styling options are endless.
Bottom line: In the market for a new shoe? Are you feeling a little daring or maybe want to take a stroll down memory lane? Then may I suggest investing in the latest and must-have trend of the season: THE MULE. They are having a serious comeback moment and we need to pay homage to our childhood fashion and its trending rebirth!
