How to wear a flat loafer mule?
The backless loafer is as much an ‘it’ shoe as a trench coat is a closet essential in Paris or London: an absolute must-have, the gold standard, the shoe all others shoes aspire to be. This year, the new mule is more desirable than ever, and has never been easier to wear. Follow our guide to tame your mules and bring them to heel!
Comfortable, stylish and easy to wear, the new mule has become the go-to springtime shoe in a very short space of time. It leaves the heel on show, but the covered toe ensures a confident stride. The important thing with the mule is that the ankles are left bare. So wave goodbye to tights, thick socks and long, wide-leg trousers.
Slip your mules onto bare feet and team them with black skinny jeans or raw mom jeans, pleated pants or boyfriend pants. Flat mules are also the perfect partner for a dress. Whether it’s mini or midi, they’ll add an effortlessly chic finishing touch to your silhouette. And on a sunny summer’s day, nothing beats denim shorts, a loose-fitting top and flat mules for an easy ‘let’s-go-shopping’ outfit.
To top it all off, go for a trench or straight coat with 3/4 sleeves if you like it long, or a biker jacket or blazer if you prefer a shorter option. For a more casual look, a denim jacket or hoodie (as seen on Chiara Ferragni) is another winner with flat mules.
How to choose your flat mules
With or without fur, buckles, straps, rhinestones or glitter, the important thing is to feel good in them. For women with a more classic style, a modern, minimalist mule will add a chic finishing touch to your preppy look, great with an oversized shirt. The latest colorful or embroidered babouche slippers also work well for a more hippie chic effect, perfect with a knee-length pleated skirt or lace summer dress.
You get the picture - the mule is a hybrid shoe that works with almost every style. Even the most stubborn would agree!
