If there’s one word you need to remember this month, let it be this one: mules. Your trusty footwear steed this spring is backless, slide-on and so on the money. Here’s the 10 best to take you to work, prom, parties and all the dinner plans.
Meet your new mules
By Caroline Ferry, 10 April 2017
1. Let’s go
Got a chic little city break in the diary? Give your trainers a day off and do your sightseeing in these backless, buckled loafers.
2. Very vacay
Yep, you can take your new fave style on hols, too. Ain't nobody got the energy to wedge your warm-as feet into strappy stilettos for those evening promenade strolls. Have a more chill hol in these little softies.
3. Werk werk werk
80s points are back, baby, and for a hot-weather update that you can totally wear with jeans come Saturday, get a load of these.
4. Smart Sundays
Sunday lunch with the crew doesn’t have to be all sunglasses and elastic waistbands, you know. Up your roast-ready game and bring the easy chic in suede.
5. Slipper time
The 2K17 update to the much-loved velvet slipper of yesteryear, meet the backless, slip-on, super-smart mules for straight-from-shopping-dinner-plans.
6. Flashy, moi?
Cos the general wisdom is that every woman should have a pair of really, ridiculous shoes. Let us introduce you to yours, there to tickle your toes at your BFF’s wedding and beyond.
7. Buckle up
For when you want to look smart, but still nod to the new season, pair your cropped trews and striped shirt with these flats for casual Friday excellence.
8. Prom queen
You want shoes for the big night that are so dressy but also won’t betray you when you’re mid-moves on the dancefloor. A chunky, mid-heel will be your fairy godmother, trust.
9. Party pony
For when you just CBA with a sassy look, don your easy go-to jeans and tee, then let these unreal leopard heels do the hard work.
10. Jean for joy
These slip-on treasures are a way to double your denim quota and get in on some frills and fancy.
