How to Wear Mules

Mules are sure to be our summer go-to shoes. If you wanna get technical, they’re backless heels, often with peep toes and chunky heels, and they’re perf’ for warm weather styling.

Get pedi ready, ’cause these mules outfits are gonna give ya some real outfit inspo.

Oh, Sandy

Chloe Miles describes this look herself as a 21st Century Sandy from Grease interpretation. Regardless of her inspo, we’re all about the feminine styling in this ‘gram that’ll kill it during those summer nights. Faux fur platform mules don’t have to be a statement shoe, make sure they add just the right amount of sass by styling with a monochrome midi skirt, white jacket and, obvs, a slaying biker jacket. Sunglasses the mandatory accessory.

Off Duty Style

Wondering how to wear mules when you’re having a casj day? Look to Manchester babe Sabina for outfit inspo. She’s styled her slingbacks with classic skinny jeans and rolled up the hems to show off her platform style. Add to that a high neck top and a longline duster jacket for immediate insta-girl chic. If you wanna add a lil colour, swap the top for a statement blouse with embroidery detailing for a fashion-forward look that’ll be killa’ on both Instagram and the street.

Sassy in Satin

Our model bae Felicity has got plenty of red carpet events to go to, and her packed out diary will always have us on insta ready to start scrollin’ for our own occasionwear inspiration. She’s picked mules this time to go with a seriously sassy wrap satin dress in the perfect shade of pink to match. We love how she’s playing with different textures, and the faux fur and satin work perfectly together. Finish the entire look off with a nude lip, bold brows and statement earrings.

Playing Out

If in doubt: wear a playsuit. Our standard weekend fit looks perfect here paired with slingback platform mules, and it’s no surprise that Sang had to get the shot for the ‘gram. These nude mules look perfect with a shorter hem as the colour will defs make sure that they’re leg lengthening, while the platform means that there’s no pain, just gain. Make like Sang and keep your make up  subtle with a nude lip and lashings of mascara.

Mule School

Your how to wear mules 101 is in session, bae. US blogger Victoria Loi styles hers with over the knee sports socks, ’cause they do say rules are made for be broken. Give the illusion of thigh high boots and stay sassy well after hometime. Style with an oversized hoody or jumper dress to make sure this looks more ‘woke up like this’ than ‘uniform’, and add a choker for steeze.
