Not-so-feminine and chic, mules are one of the nostalgic pieces that the entire fashion world is going crazy about. The mule shoe has made its grand sartorial comeback, featuring its flat version with a backless design that made everyone in the fashion industry jump to buy themselves a pair. Whether you’re looking for a pair of backless flat mules, block-heeled mules, or stiletto mules, keep on reading for our 5 stylish ways to wear them.
Opt for a nude pair of mules to add some stature to your frame
Functional and fashionable, mules are non-platform footwear with moderate heels that can add some inches to your height visually. Just opt for a nude shade that resembles your skin tone, as a lighter shade will make your legs look tanned. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, wear your pair of nude mules with chic shorts to expose more of your leg, therefore making you look taller and leaner. Nude mules are typically dressier compared to black and printed styles that can take you from casual to party-ready looks.
Go for an edgy style and color of mules to complement your outfits
Mules are a great footwear selection between the ugly Birkenstock sandals and edgy ankle booties that can take your street style up a notch. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, trade your edgy boots with a pair of black mules to make your military chic outfit edgier and a bit unexpected. Mules can give you the same edgy vibe that ankle boots can give without compromising comfort and style. Try wearing them with your typical casual outfits like jeans and tee to make your street looks a bit practical and edgy.
Trade your dressy ballet flats and casual thong sandals with flat mules
Flat mules, also known as ‘mule shoes,’ still look edgy and a bit unexpected that can refresh your typical casual style. There are outfits that can’t go well with dressy ballet flats, as well as casual thong sandals that can go well with a pair of flat mules. In fact, they’re a comfortable and practical choice for long walks in the city on weekends. It’s comfortable yet has a posh finish to it, especially when it is made of classic leather. Neutral shades of black, white, gray, and brown are versatile enough to flatter any of your outfits.
Go for dressier styles of flat mules for a chic street style
Not a fan of edgy looks? Then go for dressier mules with girly ornaments and in feminine shades to complement your chic outfits. Fashion blogger Blair Eadie adds some spice to her unexpected color combination outfit by opting for a pair of cobalt blue mules that contrast with the color of her skirt and top—looking for ways to dress up your denim without wearing heels? Then go for a pair of animal print mules that will add some fierce and posh vibe to your casual outfit.
Go for a pair of mules that complements your sophisticated outfit
Stiletto mules, as well as block-heeled mules, can be great to wear with your feminine dresses, skirts, and jumpsuits. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may go for a pair of stiletto mules to wear with your cut-out outfit, or simply go for an edgy pair of mules to dress down your sexy outfit.
Mules, like Birkenstock sandals, can look chic and sophisticated that you can opt for to create a trendy and fashion-forward look.
