That’s right. The rumors are true. The Mule is back. The shoe that once upon a time you would only find your grandmother wearing has had a youthful makeover and is dying to complete your outfit. Back to the basics; a mule is a shoe that is normally backless and often close-toed. The modern day facelift this shoe has received included a peep-toe version that you’ll see a lot of. Some styles have even added a strap on the back. If you do a Pinterest search on mules, you will quickly see they are so much more than a simple slip-on sandal now!
This shoe adds a sophisticated compliment to most outfits and because of the chunky heel, offers a lot of comfort. The modernized mule comes in a variety of colors, materials, styles and heights. With pretty much limitless options, we’ll just give you a peek at how you can style these classic beauties.
Flowy Tops & Dresses
Spring and summer demand flowy, airy tops and dresses. With summer concerts, brunches and shopping on the agenda, finding a comfortable, cute outfit is a top priority. Try pairing a loose fitting dress with layering necklaces for added texture and a pop of color. Complete the look with nude, peep-toe mules like the Dolce Vita Tegan to elongate your legs and show off your summertime pedi.
The mule makeover gave so much variety to a once simple style shoe. You can even find styles that resemble booties. Slip on AND booties!? A match made in comfort heaven. Try pairing the Dolce Vita Hudson with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and this Free People Sugar Cane Print Top. The meshed leather material used on the mules pictured below make this shoe perfect for summer walking, nice and breathable while still adding a chic flare to your whole outfit.
Mules for the Office
These shoes are entirely office appropriate. The right style will pair nicely with your favorite office dress. The Dolce Vita Noa, pictured below, paired with the white, Aztec print dress show off your summer glow in the best way. At 5 o’clock, throw on a colorful, fringed kimono and head to your favorite tapas bar. The chunky heel and mid-height will provide you with the support and comfort to dance the night away.
