For my first Fashion Friday for the year, I decided that I want to focus on a shoe trend that has been dubbed “the hottest shoe this summer” and I can totally see why. Have I mentioned before that “Fashion Friday” is my longest standing series on the blog?! I started it 6 years ago (yikes in October it’s 6 years of blogging! ) and fashion enthusiasts that reads my FF regularly or just stumbles upon it – seems to love it.
Nonetheless, the shoe trend that I’m talking about is the mule. I have seen them literally everywhere and it seems the much coveted mules have hit the fashion scene hard! Out of all the shoe trends that I have ever featured on the blog, this one is the most versatile as I’ve seen people from different ages and personal style rock it. At first I thought that the mule trend only meant the high heel until I saw it on some or other trend report and voilà!… they come in the form of slippers as well.Usually I search high and low for different styles of a particular trend when I do my FF post but definitely not this week. I have rounded up a few of my favourite pairs and these are the ones that I have come up with. I will admit that I may or may not have jumped on the bandwagon and fell victim to the trend and purchased my own pair. The mules with the chunkier heel are perfect for both day and night time. If I had to choose I would probably go for the heel as I feel that the slippers are too “bed time chic” for my liking.
Fashion Friday would not be FF without some celeb inspiration to show you how many different ways on how to rock this trend. As per Wikipedia, high heel mules were a popular indoor shoe style from the 18th century – the trend evolved right through the 1990’s and now finds itself bracing the tootsies of celebs in 16/17. With that being said I have a double whammy of celebs for you this week. I have to say that I love love love how Selena styles her mules. I hope you have a lovely weekend everybody! Yay or Nay for the mule trend?
