The Pointed mule: Bringing a touch of class to an outfit, whilst retaining a sense of informality is everything I want from a shoe and I think I’ve found the answer to compliment every look this season.
Spring/Summer dressing is creative but it can be challenging to dress on those in between days. For that instant injection of the latest trend, try a mule. A great fix if you haven’t had your pedicure and a perfect leg lengthener for trousers and a the easiest shoe to slip on and throw off.
I’ve included a few of my favourite black pairs for that truly classic wardrobe staple but if you are after a touch of character and attitude go for colour or embellishment.
How to Style them : Classic & Black Pointed Mules
A timeless black leather mule in every height adds elegance and poise to a simple trench, stonewash ankle jean, sunglasses and a pop of red. Conversely, if you want something more fashion aware pair with a pyjama style wide leg trousers.

How to Style them: Embellished + Bright Pointed Mules
If you want to redefine how you dress your feet and complete your outfit with something more outstanding then go for a bold bright shoe to bring a pop of colour to your look. Pinks, reds or oranges give floral connotations, perfect for stepping into spring- try to match them with a similarly coloured lipstick to enhance your look. If you want to stand out from the crowd but aren’t quite ready for a super bright shoe, try looking for an embellished mule; something with a tassel, buckle or strap is striking and adds a focal point to an outfit without going mad on colour.
