Mules are basically a lazy girl’s dream come true. Really, why would you wear anything else when you can just slip on a pair of mules and run out the door? And from heeled versions to flats, mules are everywhere right now.
Flat mules are comfy and chic and a great alternative to the ballet flats and loafers you’ve worn to the ground — they feel much sleeker. Or, look for a pair with a heel to dress up your look — you can even wear them with tights into the winter to get more out of your investment. As a busy working mom, I love mules because I can have a baby and ten million bags and snacks in my arms and just slide them on as I run out the door, without worrying about tying or buckling my shoes.
Mules may seem like they’re tricky to style and you may be wondering what to wear with mules, but just treat them like any other pair of flats and you’re good to go. Still not sure what to wear with mules? I love to wear mules with dresses and skirts, but I also will pair them with jeans on the reg. They’re actually easier to slide on than sneakers and dress up your look a bit more. (Btw, these are the mules everyone is wearing right now, and my favorite Amazon dupes.)
