Mule mule mule! I’m not talking about the four-legged kind but one of the hottest footwear trends for the next few seasons.
When I think of the mule images which pop into my head is that of a chucky heel with an equally thick upper lacking in elegance and versatility. However, shoe designers have reinterpreted this style turning out sexy, sleek and refined silhouettes that have this fashion blogger paying very close attention with her credit card.
To ease you into this new style I found an affordable mule from one of my favourite online stores – Zara – which costs only $99.90. You can’t go wrong with that price!
However, if you need a little more persuasion to slip your foot into the mule then consider Manolo Blahnik’s opinion of this style of the moment. He penned an article for the first issue of PORTER magazine, Net-a-Porter’s print publication, where he said “To me, the mule is the most exquisite little shoe… The backless design requires more balance and poise. Even the sound they make is seductive. That flirtatious little click clack, tip tap.” Buy online.
