Shopping For: Mules

Oh mules. Not necessarily the most delicate sounding word in the shoe-style family, and until recently, not always the most fabulous option either.  However, feel free to remove all of your preconceived notions and follow our lead on this one as the mule has been reinvented and seems to be giving your basic stilettos a chic run for their money. With styles ranging from classic black leather to what can only be described as pure whimsy, these designs run the gamut to give everyone’s personal style something to love. From the lavender and pink brocade kitten heels from Miu Miu or a suede bow-back trailing slide from Oscar de la Renta to the impressively glamorous cobalt cut-out suede and crystal embellished pair from Sophia Webster, there’s clearly no limit to what can be done and each designer is displaying their spin on what used to be just a basic slip-on silhouette.
