We all have this child­hood me­mory when we had an un­flat­ter­ing pair of shoes with a open back and cov­ered toes, and those shoes were our last re­sort footwear, the ones that we never wanted to in­cor­po­rate with any ensem­ble no mat­ter what’s the oc­ca­sion was.

This sea­son’s trend direc­tory is all about the de­light­ful feel­ing of fash­ion deja vu. Ev­ery other clas­sic trend, back from the 80’s or 90’s is mak­ing their fash­ion­able comeback and how! Our beloved state­ment mules, the preened to per­fec­tion footwear, are also the fruit of these fash­ion and trend cock­tails hap­pen­ing around the globe. We all have this child­hood me­mory when we had an un­flat­ter­ing pair of shoes with a open back and cov­ered toes, and those shoes were our last re­sort footwear, the ones that we never wanted to in­cor­po­rate with any ensem­ble no mat­ter what’s the oc­ca­sion was. One thing we never knew is that the same pair of shoes could ever have such a dras­tic fash­ion­able re­boot and their new ver­sions would be ev­ery­thing con­tra­dic­tory to what they used to be. Mules shoes have wit­nessed a very long, con­tro­ver­sial and tir­ing jour­ney, they are now ev­ery girl’s wardrobe sta­ple but this shoe trend has faced some real life strug­gles to be this fash­ion sen­sa­tion, that it is now!

The mules are a con­tro­ver­sial style loved by some, be­moaned by oth­ers. The ori­gins of the word mule lie in An­cient Rome; the con­tem­po­rary ap­pro­pri­a­tion refers to a shoe that is back­less and usu­ally closed-toed. Orig­i­nally worn within the bed­room, this style of shoe has a sto­ried his­tory which leads this trend to to­day’s ev­ery other renowned ramp around the world. And this style is very much no­table on the feet of the great and good of the fash­ion pack through­out the lat­est round of fash­ion weeks.

It’s no se­cret that mules are one of the most loved shoe trend and ac­cord­ing to the trend fore­casts, this shoe trend has a very long jour­ney ahead to con­quer!

The in­no­va­tive con­cept of these shoes laced with ut­most com­fort was the rea­son be­hind the ini­tial pull but with all those mag­i­cal ad­di­tions done by ev­ery other fash­ion­ably ac­claimed de­signer, this shoe trend have glo­ri­fies ev­ery pos­si­ble hori­zon of women dress­ing. This one ac­ces­sory has cap­tured the street style zeit­geist like no other trend could have!

The mules is the per­fect footwear for sea­sonal tran­sit! The cov­ered toes save you from the early win­ter chills with­out burn­ing your feets with the moody burns of on­set sum­mer suns. Mules cel­e­brates strong as­cent of ev­ery sea­son. The ones cov­ered with rich satin, bro­cade and vel­vet are per­fect im­pli­ca­tion for chilly win­ter. Flo­ral blooms would be a per­fect pick for spring- sum­mer sea­son and the ones with muted olive tones with sub­tle em­broi­dery, pas­tel shades and with a min­i­mal ap­proach are best suited for au­tumn/ fall sea­son.

The mules have ce­mented their sar­to­rial style backed with the sense of flex­i­bil­ity and adapt­abil­ity that this trend has. For the days when dress­ing-up seems too much of an ef­fort, you can eas­ily in­cor­po­rate an ef­fort­less pair of stud­ded mules or the ones with a pop of bright color and pom-pom de­tails, it would make a per­fect “stroll-in-the-city” kinda look. Gone are the days when a per­fect dress calls for just a pair of pumps, a pair of co­or­di­nates mules can do the busi­ness just per­fect for your flat­ter­ing evening looks. The mules are the per­fect footwear for an in­stant fash­ion trans­for­ma­tion; this trend got you cov­ered from a per­fect lazy girl guide to a per­fect daz­zling diva trans­for­ma­tion. This trend is here to stay and this stay would be most com­fort­able and aes­thet­i­cally ap­proved by each and ev­ery who’s who of trend tribe. So, you haven’t yet in­dulged your­self with your per­fect pair of mule? This is the time to join the mule band­wagon!
