Trend of the Season: Mules

Ever since Gucci released its trendy loafers, there’s no doubt that mules are having a moment, especially this season. I’m seeing this Schutz pair everywhere, and Madewell has an affordable pair for under $100. I may be a little biased, but my suede Franco Sarto mules are my personal favorites.

FYI, if you’re curious about sizing on my Sarto mules, I went up a half size. If your foot is wider, you’ll probably want to go up a full size.

I’m not into mules with heels, but I’m really loving a lot of the flat styles I’m seeing this year. Style them just like you would a pair of flats. I think mules can really elevate a denim outfit. Pair with your favorite cozy sweater and jeans for the perfect fall look.

The good news about the mules trend? There are plenty of affordable options (and lots of leopard), many of which I’ve linked below. So if you haven’t bought the Gucci pair, but are debating doing so, try a more affordable option first! Or, if you like to shop budget-friendly trends, then this list below is for you! Fortunately, mules are a timeless style, and they’re a style you can wear even when they are not the shoe of the season.

    There are so many variations of this trend which makes it hard to pick my favorite style, but I especially love the pointy toe version that you have! Thanks for sharing.

      I seriously love the pair I got, and the color will be so great for fall. Now if the weather could start to feel like fall, that would be great. Thanks for stopping by, Erin!
