The 5 pairs of mules you need in your wardrobe
Cozy shoes for everyday wardrobe.
Is there a footwear offering as versatile as a pair of mules? The answer, sneakers aside, is quite frankly no. Not too dressy like strappy sandals, yet chic enough to make any outfit feel just that more put-together and practical too, they’re the true style chameleon of footwear.
They also just so happen to be the unofficial shoe of summer. Because, let’s face it, as much as we all love the look of intricate lace-up heels and strappy stilettos, when temperatures start to rise, easy slip-on shoes are what we wear most. From running quick errands around the city, to going to work or wearing a pair to dress up casual jeans and T-shirts, they’re our go-to shoe of choice.
Suffice it to say, it's important to select the most comfortable, long-lasting, and high-quality styles when shopping for the perfect pair of mules. To help guide you in finding the perfect pair, we’ve put together a list of the 5 best pairs of mules to buy on the market now.
Gucci Princetown Horsebit Mules
It-shoes come and go, but the forever-stylish Gucci Princetown loafers are here to stay. A favourite of the fashion pack, they're the practical shoe that still packs a stylish punch - plain black designs are classic whilst patterned styles make an effortless statement. Easily recognised with their almond toe and the brand's signature horsebit hardware on top, wear them with everything from cropped pants to mini skirts.
Hermès Oz Mule
We can’t think of a more iconic brand than Hermès, and way more affordable than one of its handbags, a pair of loafers are a failsafe investment from the brand. Traditionalists should invest in a black or neutral pair for a smart look that will go with everything, whilst bold, colourful designs will appeal to those who are after a quick hack to transform a minimal wardrobe. They may not be cheap, but take it from us - the craftsmanship is second to none and they’ll stay in your wardrobe forever.
Nicholas Kirkwood Heeled Leather Mules
Nicholas Kirkwood has long been our go-to designer for beautiful shoes that are as timeless as they are modern. These Beya loafers are one of the label's most-loved styles because they're beautifully made, comfortable to wear and work for so many occasions. A pair in black will pair with just about anything and will see you through all seasons.
Givenchy Logo Mules
Givenchy's Bedford mules are a convenient, stylish option for every day. Printed with the brand’s instantly recognizable logo, they’re made from buttery leather and cushioned footbeds. We love this two-toned off-white hue that will temper bright colours and work with neutrals too.
Prada Pointed Toe Mules
We’ve fallen hard for Prada’s pointed-toe mules. Sleek and elegant with their elongating pointed toe and slim, backless shape, they’re an Instagram favourite and are as practical as they are stylish. Yet, don’t get us wrong, we don’t mean practical in a school-run kind of way but in a versatile, easy-to-slip-on, go-with-anything, day-or-night kind of sense. In short, just trust us, if you’re in need of some elevated flats - these are your answer.
