Mules are the perfect summer sandals. They are comfortable, easy to slip on and off for summertime beach walks and lazy afternoons in the park, and there are plenty of colours, styles and heel types to choose from.
The mule has never really gone out of fashion and has claimed its place again as a hot summer favourite for 2019.
What to wear with mules
This is a very versatile type of footwear, which means that there are many outfits that work perfectly when teamed up with a stylish pair of mules.
Slip-on, flat-heeled sliders can be found in all colours and hues. These look great as a dressed-down look paired with a slouch or off-the-shoulder t-shirt and skinny jeans. To catch the wave of the ’90s revival, you can team them with a loose jacket and high-waisted pair of tailored trousers.
Toe-post mules are perfect for long summer days when going from a sandy beach to a classy coffee shop or bar for the evening. These can be teamed with almost any outfit with ease.
Dresses can be given an urban theme when combined with sliders and a denim jacket. This look works well for neutral and grey tones and can also be used to make a bold statement, with rich colours contrasting with the denim.
If you are aiming for more glam to your look, heeled mules can be just as comfortable as flat sandals. These can complement floaty summer dresses for a relaxed summer vibe and work just as well when paired with cropped trousers and a smart blouse.
Alternatively, you can go bold with a AX Paris red maxi dress and block heels. The high-neck red maxi dress also works perfectly with block-heeled mules for an elegant evening look. A polka dot red maxi dress with delicate kitten heel mules will give a 1950s flavour to your outfit.
On a warm day, closed-toe mules are ideal as a sleek yet practical sandal to wear to work, making the commute and the working day comfortable without compromising your professional office-wear style.
With so many options and styles to choose from, it is worth having a few pairs of mules to mix your style up over the summer.
