MULES, MULES, MULES

Mules are everywhere right now and I for one can’t get enough. They’re a massive footwear trend for this summer and I am down right loving them. Mules were all over the S/S16 runways, with designers giving us a new, youthful reinvention of this classic style. They’re the perfect, easy breezy summer shoe, a one stop style that can take you straight from day to night time.

There are like a bjillion pairs of mules that I want at the moment. Perhaps that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but there are definitely an awful lot that I’m in love with. The trusty UK high street has lots of different options when it comes to heel height, style, colours and fabrics, with most having a comfortable block heel. I’m basically obsessed with them. So, with that in mind, I thought I would share a selection of my favourites and the ones that I am seriously swooning over.

The Neutrals

Clockwise from top left: 1. ASOS £22, 2. TOPSHOP £92, 3. TOPSHOP £59, 4. OFFICE £60, 5. ZARA £39.99, 6. NEW LOOK £19.99

1. Asos Mule Sandals With Tortoise Heel in White £22

This Asos pair is going to be one of the most wearable out of the mules I’ve included. They have a very low heel, so they’re sure to be comfortable and are an easy casual shoe for every day wear. What really drew me to these is of course the gorgeous tortoise heel which I absolutely love. The heel spruces this simple shoe up and adds some lovely detail which helps them still stand out amongst the abundance of mules all over the high street. They’re faux leather, and come in both black and white, so the hardest thing is choosing which colour to go for (I honestly can’t decide which I prefer).

2. Topshop Pearl Effect High Heel Mules in Black £92

These insanely amazing Topshop mules are so utterly dreamy. I mean, just look at that incredible pearly heel and bow detail! They’re definitely a wear with care kind of shoe, and at the price I would need to execute a lot of caution in making sure nothing happened to them. They are very special indeed. These are also available in white, and there is a slightly lower heel version which comes in black and what I would describe as duck egg blue. They’re the most expensive pair I’ve included, and would certainly be more of a splurge purchase for me. But they are stunning and totally drool worthy.

3. Topshop Soft Unlined Mules in Black Leather £59

Probably the most classic pair, these simple black leather mules would be unbelievably versatile. Their low heel and the soft upper section makes them perfect for any look and any occasion. I can’t think of a more wearable pair of mules, and they have a square toe too which I love. If you prefer something a little fancier, you can also get these in silver leather, and there’s 3 different suede options- soft grey, light blue and pink - all of which I of course want!

4. Office Closed Toe Mules in Black Suede £60

This pair from Office is a little different to the rest. As you can see, this is the only pair of mules I’ve included that has a closed toe. I do really love the closed toe style, but they’re far less common than peep toe mules this season. That being said, there are some super stylish pairs. These black suede ones are my favourite, and they’re available in nude pink suede too if you’ve had enough of black (if that's even possible).

5. Zara High Heel Crossover Mules in White £39.99

Zara always do really gorgeous, classic shoes, and these white mules are no exception. They’re very chic and oh so stylish. They have the popular wood effect heel which adds a nice contrast against the bright, summery white of the criss-cross straps. They’re just beautiful.

6. New Look Mid Heel Mules in Tan £19.99

I happen to be very fond of tan accessories and tan footwear in particular. They’re often a go to for me, so I think a tan suedette mule is another rather classic option. I feel like this neutral colour adds some warmth to your outfit and you can’t really go wrong with a tan shoe. These are such an affordable price as well, and they’re also available in black.

The Colours

Clockwise from top left: 7. OFFICE £48, 8. ASOS £45, 9. OFFICE £58, 10. TOPSHOP £65, 11. EGO £24.99, 12. ZARA £49.99

7. Office Block Heel Mules in Pink Suede £48

Office have got these suede mid heel mules in a few different colour options, but this blush pink shade is my personal pick. Suede seems to be the material of choice for mules, with leather a close second. I often prefer suede shoes so this gorgeous style is right up my street. They also come in grey and black, and they actually also had apricot which I loved as they were a really unique, gorgeous colour, but unfortunately they’re currently sold out. These pretty pink ones are new in and couldn’t be any cuter.

8. Asos Lace Up Mules in Teal Velvet £45

Ok, so I may technically be cheating a little bit with these lace up shoes, but Asos describe them as mules, and who am I to argue with Asos? Lace up shoes are definitely a favourite of mine, regardless of the style, and these are just amazing. I decided to include them in this incredibly beautiful shade of teal, but they also come in a dreamy shade of pastel pink. Bonus: they’re also velvet, and I love me some velvet shoes.

9. Office Mules in Rose Gold Leather £58

Metallics are a huge trend this season and bring an unexpected twist to summer style. And let’s face it, they’re pretty darn snazzy too. There are quite a few pairs of gorgeous metallic mules, but these beauties from Office are definitely one of my favourites. I really love the contrasting wooden look heel, which is a common feature of quite a lot of mules and sandals at the moment. Plus I am a sucker for anything rose gold. I can’t get enough of it. These also come in silver, or there’s black and white if the metallic thing isn’t for you.

10. Topshop Flared Heel Mules in Pink £65

How fab are these hot pink mules? Yet another glorious statement shoe from the ever dependable Topshop. These are another gorgeous metallic pair in a stunning shade of pink, and they have an amazing flared heel. I think they’re kind of 80’s disco-tastic and a perfect party shoe. If the pink doesn’t do it for you, you can also get them in an equally dazzling gold.

11. Ego Block Heeled Mule in Light Blue £24.99

This is another great suede option, this time in a faux suede and at a lower price as a result. I love the criss-cross detailing and the higher heel height on these Ego mules, and again there are a few different colours available, including a classic black, light grey and an absolutely beautiful soft pink. This light blue colour seemed a bit different and I love them for it, plus it’s a lovely summery shade.

12. Zara Braided High Heel Mules in Yellow £49.99

I had to include this pair from Zara in the most summer appropriate, sunshine yellow shade. They have a wood effect heel to break it up a bit so they’re not too OTT, but they’re definitely more unique than some of the others. I love the detail of the braided upper section, and they’re going to add a bright pop of colour to any look.

This post actually took me quite a while to put together, purely because I had such a hard time narrowing it down to 12 pairs (it was supposed to only be 8). There are just so many gorgeous mules to choose from. They are definitely the shoe you need this summer.
