FOOT WORK The mule has made a stylish comeback and we are excited to make it part of our wardrobe. Whether patterned, as seen in Tory Burch’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection, embellished and quirky, flat or heeled, the mule has the power to update your outfit. While the silhouette can be tricky to pull o, it can add versatility, style and a touch of feminine fun to your wardrobe when worn right. Remember to keep your heels healthy, as they’ll receive maximum exposure.

And get the correct size – a heel slipping over the back or lost halfway in the shoe is a definite no-no. If you choose an open-toed style, a pedi is paramount…
SKIRT THE ISSUE Mules work well with a variety of separates, but when it comes to skirts, try yours with a midi or A-line, as this will create a well-proportioned look, while adding a modern twist. Avoid wearing mules with mini skirts or short bodycon dresses – the heels will overpower and unbalance the look.
Opt for open-toed mules, as seen at Alexander Wang, when wearing side-slit or pencil skirts to add a cool contrast to this feminine separate. W E A R T H E P A N T S Wearing mules with pants is a great way to make a structured outfit look fun yet elegant.
Whether you are power-suiting or looking for something more casual, mules are best worn with cropped pants: showing a little ankle helps draw attention to the style and detail of your shoe – as perfectly illustrated in Victoria Beckham’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
The same applies to jeans: go for cropped and cued or slightly tapered, rather than skinny. For a retro look, pair platform mules with wide-legged pants.
