It’s official: the heeled mule is (finally) back! This style was a wardrobe staple in the ’90s and has thankfully made a triumphant return. Minimal or embellished, these shoes have quickly become a wardrobe staple of fashionistas everywhere and we promise they’ll become yours, too. Here are 8 pairs of heeled mules that will inspire you to ditch your wedges and pumps ASAP.
If you want a departure from the classic, minimal look, an embellished mule is definitely the style for you. We can’t get enough of these tassel mules from Zara ($89.90) as they’ll instantly add a touch of fun to your look.
The Chunky Heel
A chunky block heel adds just-right height to a cleanly styled slide. We’re currently swooning for these head-turning red mules ($127.93) and have them at the top of our mule shopping list.
If you’re looking for a more playful take on this heeled trend, we recommend trying a mule that features a fun, bold pattern. These black and white block heel mules from Stella McCartney ($740) feature a funky zigzag pattern that will take your look from zero to 100 real quick.
If a minimalistic approach is more your style, we suggest opting for an all-black mule with a chunky heel and open toe. These minimal mules ($85) are easy, modern and simply chic, and will go with just about everything!
In addition to being so chic it’s almost ridiculous, these millennial pink closed-toe ($643) mules are a fun adaptation of the style.
You can fully embrace this ’90s trend by going the metallic route. These silver mules ($120) are absolute perfection, and the chunky heel and open toe are a practical design element.
There’s no denying that spring and florals are synonymous. A pair of floral mules ($141.53) are absolutely perfect for spring — just pair them with your favourite pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, and you’re good to go!
