Mules are back. Any self respecting fashionista is aware of this, but that does not mean we are all on board with the trend. Many of us think of the clunky hippy versions that were popular a decade or so ago, but todays crop are anything but clunky. From stiletto heels to stud encrusted heels to mesh and shearling trimmed uppers, mules are one of the chicest pieces you can add to your wardrobe.
I was sitting on the train the other day one stop away from Spring Street were I get off for work when I noticed a young women sitting across from me wearing a pair of peep toe mules. They had a chunky heel and a strap and were in a sort of gun metal gray color. She wore them with a pair of skinny jeans, a basic tee and a cropped moto jacket. Her look was simple, but the addition of the mules really pulled the whole outfit together and gave her a polished “I have cool NYC job” kinda vibe. This renewed my desire to acquire a pair of mules so I will have my eyes peeled for sure. And to that end I pulled together some uber pricy pairs–I mean I could spend my entire tax return on these Altuzarra beauties, but I probably won’t, so I also included some more affordable options. I love these “green” mules from Top Shop, and at $129 they are oh so affordable. I just wish they came with lower heel. But they certainly are sexy, and with such a chunky heel and strap walking in them should be a breeze. So, do you do the mule trend? If not would you consider it?
