Making a comeback from the 80s, spring’s go-to shoe is a new take on a classic: high-heeled mules. From fast fashion retailer Zara to luxury shoe designer Jimmy Choo, high-heeled mules were seen on the runways of fashion week and with it’s flattering silhouette and comfortable, easy fit, we’re certain we’ll be seeing lots of this shoe on the streets as well. The mule has gotten a bad rap as the stripper shoe of choice but if you stay away from clear PVC and faux feathers, and keep it classy with leather and lots of coverage, the mule can be a ladylike match for all of your spring outfits. Here are seven of our favorites, one for every day of the week:
The classic – consider this the little black dress of mules and pair your outfits accordingly. We suggest a girly skater skirt in a bright color or white trouser pants for a more elegant look.
Price: USD $747.29
Futuristic and very in-the-moment, the stark white and minimalist lines of this shoe pair well with the eclectic prints and art block colors from this spring’s runways.
Price: USD $858.56
Maison Martin Margiela
The chunky lines are reminiscent of last fall’s ankle boot which makes this a great segue when paired with ankle length pants.
Price: USD $883.47
Leather and PVC Pumps
A small strip of PVC here is far from trashy and brings a whole lot of elegance to this shoe when paired with a calf-grazing pencil skirt.
Price: USD $823.68
High Heel Slingback Shoe
This shoe is as versatile as they come. The stiletto heel and satin finish make it an easy choice for evenings out but the comfortable fit and slight peep toe means you can wear them during the day as well.
Price: USD $99.90
Leather High Heel Mules
The highly structured mule goes well with tailored trousers and blazers. But don’t let that keep you from balancing them out with a floral print frock or colorful, drop-waist shift dress.
Price: USD $99.90
Leather Wedge Shoe
A wedge keeps this mule comfortable for walking around in but the clean lines means you’ll look extremely pulled together no matter where you go.
Price: USD $129.00
