I've always loved mules. A few years ago, I was craving mules and went crazy hunting for them. It was difficult to find a pair because they were not trending back then. I persisted though and succeeded in getting a few pairs. That's the thing about mules - one season they're hot and the next they're not. But I don't care because I love them always, and here's why I think they are essential.
First, they go with everything. You can wear mules with pants, a dress, or a skirt and you won't go wrong. They'll totally class up your look.
Second, they are easy to wear. Just slide your feet in and you're good to go. You don't even need your hands to wear them. Can't get any easier than that.
Third, they're so feminine and sexy. I can't explain it, but something about mules makes me feel like a woman with gorgeous feet. Of course you need to have your pedicure game on.
Finally, mules are comfortable most of the time. I say most of the time because it depends on the heel. I recommend block heels.
So mules are back to being hot, and I got this Aldo pair at DSW. It's comfortable and I adore the gold heels. I think mules are a must-have and should always be on-trend.
