Recently I have come to accept that I have a serious shoe problem, I can’t stop myself... so instead of staring at them in guilt I thought I’d bring you a blog post all about my absolute favourite styles at the moment! I have fallen head over heels (pun intended) for the Mule trend. Considered as one of the most versatile styles of footwear, mules have become very popular in this modern world due to its versatile nature. Mules are usually a kind of shoe which has closed toes and an open back. Along with being comfortable, these shoes are classic and chic too.
I have found myself reaching for a pair of mules for pretty much every occasion where I can’t get away with sneakers. I find that I can really dress them up or down! That’s what I love about them, because of the simplicity of the design of the open back and toe it can almost feel like your wearing a fancy style of sandal. Mules can be both short or high heeled, the higher the heel the dressier the outfit.
When it comes to shoes my personal style is very minimal, I stick to neutrals so that my shoes will always work with any outfit. However, using bright accessories is a great way to introduce colour to any look!! By keeping your outfit stripped back, adding a pair of coloured mules that complement your look can really make an outfit pop and show a little personality! Or if you’re like me and have a very minimal style when it comes to all things fashion then playing with textures would be the way to go! Below is my favourite pair of black croc mules, it’s a subtle way to bring a point of difference to any look but still keeps the outfit sleek and put together. I love anything with the faux croc texture but a few of my other favourites would be suede, patent or woven fabrics. So, if you’re not as daring with colour play around with textures!
If you are yet to invest in a pair, below I have left a bunch of my absolute go-to styles, ranging in prices, but for the most part all affordable! My footwear collection is forever expanding so if you would like to stay up to date on ‘what’s new’ when it comes to mules and how I style them, be sure to check out my Instagram @ebonyyshield for all the latest trends and fashion inspo!
