Whether you go for a summer-ready open toe or try an unusual pointed pair, mules offer all the style and sophistication of a high heel, but with more breathing room for your feet on hot days.
For a simple look, pair them with skinny jeans and a T-shirt, add a grungy edge to a stylish midi skirt with a peep-toe pair and a T-shirt, or go for elegant luxe with printed mules and a stylish cardigan. They’ll even add a fashion-forward touch to your office apparel – just wear with your everyday skirts or dresses, add a trendy coat, and transform your look in an instant.
