ON MULES AND HOW TO WEAR THEM

Tags: , , , ,

I’ve always been a shoe type of girl (sunglasses being my second favorite accessory) and even truly believe that whenever the closet full of clothes, yet nothing to wear syndrome arises, a new pair of shoes is the best quick – but mostly expensive – fix. This season seems to be all about the shoe (while keeping the rest of our ensembles quite simple) and mules are no exception.

We’ve talked about them before but…

At first sight, mules appear to be quite the illogical choice for any walking distance over 10 meters without the fear of losing them to the nearest tram rails. Though with Carine Roitfeld’s video tip on wearing elastic bands around our ankles to keep them from randomly slipping off our feet, my biggest worry when I first got them was: What am I going to wear with these?

I tried on every type of bottom I own. Short skirts – an obvious and clamorous nah! Skinny denim, boyfriend jeans, suit pants, culottes…

And then I finally figured it out. Anything above the ankle and below the knee goes. With mules, as long as there’s an ankle showing and definitely not a thigh, it’s a winner. Don’t you think?
