Ahh, the mule. It all started with a pair of Margiela snakeskin mules...the obsession was born. Mules have been all over runways for the Spring, they're the hottest shoe trend right about now (with good reason). I'm on the hunt now for zee perfect mule so this is a great time to grab them during all of the end of season sales that are still going on.

The mule can be worn oh so many ways. It can be dressed both up and down like in pictures above. I love the all black look from Sincerely, Jules because of all the different textures. The outfit is interesting because of that, the juxtaposition of the leather pants and calf hair mules makes it look so chic without even really trying.

I almost died when I saw the black Celine mules above, the geometric gold heel makes it that much more unique. Another fave is the bottom right pic in the destroyed boyfriend jeans and red Balenciaga glove mules. Ugh, black+white+red=perfect!

Mules can be done by any style of woman be it minimalist, luxe, or even eclectic like Solange Knowles. I love how she didn't go for the typical nude heel here and added a white mule to her vibrant yellow outfit. It balances everything out.

You can get the mule look pretty much anywhere now but here are a few of my faves :)

1: The beloved yellow snakeskin Margiela mules
2. Gorg print Altuzarra beaded mules
3. These amazing (sale) Alexander Wang suede mules
4. Metallic sliver (not sale!) Giuseppe Zanotti mules
(they come in gold too!)
5. Fringe Proenza Schouler mule

Which are your fave?
