Have you heard about the latest mule shoe trend that everyone is wearing this year? What is “mule”? Mule comes from French word. It is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height – from flat to high. In the early 1950s, Marilyn Monroe popularized the shoe. Mules experienced some popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s, and were seen in the 1970s and early 1980s but then re-emerged in the late 1990s, especially in its open-toed form (the “slide”), and began to dominate the shoe market for women in 2016 and 2017. In this blog, I want to share to you a black handmade mules from Tutum Shop. Why I love mules? For one, they’re convenient. In a world where women’s shoes often have complicated straps and buckles and confusing ways to put them on, it’s a comfort to know that there’s a type of shoe you can just slide into!
Here are some of the trendy mules from Gucci. Hope I can find one with floral print in our local store.
How to wear flat mules?
In this outfit, I paired mules with pleated cullotes that hit just below the knee to show the shoes. Pairing them with a plain black blouse from Penshoppe. If you decide on a shirt or blouse, then tucking in is most appropriate way. To have a touch of retro, I decided to wear the 2017’s trendy Tinted Aviator Sunnies in cobalt shade. I got this from Aggy.Ph onlineshop owned by a filipina fashion blogger Aggy Nuguid.
