This shoe trend is coming back every season and now is officially a classic

Welcome back, high heel mules!

Sandal weather has officially arrived a few months ago which is quite convenient considering the latest shoe trend that’s been around. Is it really a trend? Well, it’s hard to tell since it’s the same one you might have noticed last year – good old mules. If you invested in a pair back then, good for you – they are ready to be taken out of your closet.

Seen everywhere from Bottega Veneta, Gianvito Rossi to Stella McCartney, this warm-weather essential is all about timeless aesthetic and elegant fit. They are subtle, comfortable and just the right height – perfect to complement a busy lifestyle.

How to wear mules?

The versatility of a classic mule is incredible – they can give an effortlessly chic touch to any outfit. Plus, mules can easily transition from day to evening. Exactly what we’ll need in our post-lockdown wardrobe.

Channel your inner 90s cool-girl style and pair them with cuffed jeans and a puff sleeve top. The retro vibe never disappoints. So does the casual look, so basics such as a plain tee, knitwear or simple bag are a must. 

Timeless tailoring works too, we love the effect of a statement suit which is a perfect throw-on-and-go piece.

On the other side, take the feminine approach and wear them with a flowy skirt or romantic dress for a carefree look. Talking about dressing up, mules are ideal for summer and autumn parties and weddings. They’re sophisticated enough to pull off the fancy look and comfortable enough for long nights spent dancing.

Vegan mules? Yes, please! Because we love options

Big brands (Bottega Veneta especially with their hit mules) might be doing all the talking when it comes to the trends, but since they are so dedicated to using leather in their collections, we love to see guilt-free alternatives out there too. 

Here are some vegan options.
