Save Steal Splurge: the New Mule
Last year, the mule was fashion’s most unlikely shoe revival. But along with slipdresses, Doc Martens and grunge flannels, the ’90s staple returned with a vengeance. But this season, designers are sexing up the mule, adding texture, straps and peekaboo toes. The welcome update means that you can pair these with everything from skinny jeans to sundresses, not just prim and proper lady attire. We’ve got three picks with plenty of texture and great basic colors that make the mule 2.0 a welcome addition to any shoe collection.
Save: French Connection Slashed Leather Mules ($145)
