Time and time again we’re reminded about one aspect of fashion: All trends come and go, but then they come back again. Yet there are some trends that have a longer ‘fad-span’ than others. It may take a season, a year or a decade for some trends to really die out. Take 2016’s biggest shoe trend, for example. It was all about the mules, everywhere you looked. And guess what, it’s 2017 and the mules continue to appear in more places than you can count. Fair enough: They bring together comfort and style which is why we’re not surprised they’re still going strong on the trends radar. But, there’s one little difference or upgrade, so to say, with mules in 2017.
The versatility of these shoes and the range of designs available has increased exponentially. They’re no longer closed, pointed flats; they now come in an array of styles. Along with stripes, flared jeans and pop art prints, mules are making a bigger and better comeback this year.
Why Celebrities Love ‘Em:
Mules come in all shapes, sizes and styles but it’s flat mules that have become celeb faves. They’re comfortable, easy to slide into, and super stylish. Perfect off-duty shoes, these mules add just the right amount of class with ease. And they can be paired with almost everything! Celebrities like Emma Watson and Gigi Hadid have made these shoes their staples, wearing them at airports, Fashion Week, or enroute to work.
Street Style Fame:
Fashion Weeks this year saw show goers strutting this shoe style up and down the trendiest avenues. Whether it was mules with embellished heels, short blocks, or even flats, they were everywhere. Unlike 2016 where coloured, open toe mules were big, this year saw heeled mules taking over with block heels making their way into this shoe style.
