6 Ways to Style One of Fall’s Biggest Trends: Mules

By Christian Allaire

As you step into fall, it’s time to update your shoe wardrobe with one of the biggesttrends of the season: mules. Though the effortless, slip-on-and-go style was one of the hottest shoes for the summer, it can easily be transitioned into the colder months, too.

They key? Look for polished closed-toe mules, which can be worn to the office with ease. Styling open-toe mules with socks is always an option, too. But if you’re headed to a dressier event, opt for the classic mule — a style in satin is especially elegant.

Below you’ll find six different ways to style the mule.

Professional and Polished
A closed-toe mule in black leather can be worn with virtually any outfit. Amp it up at the office with a striped blazer, statement jewelry and colorful bag

Trendy and Casual
Pink patent is one of the hottest shoe trends happening right now. Give it a more casual spin with denim, a cozy knit and neutral accessories.

Punky and Refined
A suede mule with plastic strap offers an edgier take. Go rock ‘n’ roll with a grungy floral print, a leather jacket and bold metal accessories.


TOPSHOP mule, $280. Self-Portrait dress, Mykita sunglasses, Paco Rabanne bag, A.L.C. jacket, Iosselliani ring, J.W. Anderson necklace.

Romantic and Effortless
A pastel suede mule is inherently chic. Paired with a full skirt, cozy knit and 1970s accessories? The style is foolproof.

Bohemian and Retro
An embroidered mule adds a dash of retro flair. Wear with a ribbed skirt and socks, and a blouse that matches the shoe’s color palette.
