Winter is still hanging around and, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably sick and tired of wearing boots all the time. Luckily, spring is right around the corner and you can get a jump start on your spring wardrobe by picking up a pair of mules.
Mules are backless, making them light and airy and perfect for spring and summer. Other than that, each mule is designed differently – they can be open or closed toe, sky high or flat, in basic colours or metallic – giving you a ton of different options to suit any look. The backless structure also makes them delicate and a little sexy, so it’s no surprise that Marilyn Monroe made this shoe style popular again in the 1950s.
Because of their backless design, and the fact that they’re going to be big for spring, mules have a fashion-forward flair that will keep you ahead of the crowd. Take a look at some of these great options to get you started:
Thriller Heeled Mules
The low heel, easy slip on style, and fancy tassels make these mules both comfortable and stylish. The Oxford design means that you can pair them with anything from black dress pants to a cute summer dress to a relaxed pair of boyfriend jeans, making them a great investment for the upcoming seasons.
Overheard Lace Up Mules
Lace-up shoes have been making more of an appearance in the past few seasons; this pair blends both trends effortlessly for a sexy pair of shoes that are also easy to wear. If you have a more relaxed office, this pair of mules will look great with a pair of slim cropped pants, a crisp blouse, and a blazer.
Havana Wide Fit Caged Mules
Throwback to the ‘90s with these bad boys, that come with pastel-coloured straps. The subtle snake print adds a touch of texture to your look as well.
Petra Pointed Mules
These sleek pumps have a clear strap to provide a comfortable fit and add a bit more interest to a basic white pump. These are great for a night out, but would also look great with a pair of distressed denim jeans and a t-shirt during the day.
Daisy Street Mule Heeled Sandals
Dress up for a night on the town and stay comfortable with these sandals. The rose gold finish can pair with anything in your wardrobe.
The soft grey suede of these mules are basic enough to pair with everything but are more interesting than basic black.
These mules are basically slippers, making them perfect for staying comfortable during a busy day running errands.
If you want another basic option that you can wear with pretty much everything during the summer, these sandals in a brown shade called “whiskey” are your best bet.
