How to Style Flat Mules
Flat mules are a simple but elegant shoe, yet they can sometimes be difficult to style - especially if you haven’t worn them before. From dresses and jeans, to work and evening, we’re going to tell you the perfect way to pair these shoes with outfits and for different occasions.
Mules are described as shoes that do not have an enclosed heel, essentially shoes you can slide your feet into easily. You can get different styles from heeled, to flats, and sometimes even sandals are thrown into this category.
Flat Mules & Dresses
Whether you’re styling a summer dress for the beach or a party dress for a cocktail evening with your friends, there’s always room to add a pair of mules to your outfit. We love pairing a floaty white dress with patterned mules. We think this duo looks great when the shoes are a neutral colour like white, with an intricate pattern on top. We recommend looking at our Japanese inspired Akira flats for this, they look fabulous with both mini and maxi dresses - adding a little flair to your summer style.
Jeans & Flats for Casual Chic
The most popular way to wear pointed toe flat mules is with jeans. Whether skinny jeans, or mom jeans these shoes take an outfit from casual to chic in a matter of seconds. We have two favourite ways to rock this look, the first being to wear your shoes with raw hemmed jeans. To nail this edgy look your jeans should be barely touching your ankle so that they don’t take any attention away from your gorgeous shoes!
If you prefer wearing hemmed jeans we recommend making the most of them by rolling them up slightly, again to expose a little ankle. If you’ve chosen pointed toe flats this will help elongate your legs further! It’s easy to take this outfit from summer to autumn simply by adding a camel coloured trench coat.
Flat Mules for Work & the Office
Sick of your office high heels giving you grief throughout the day but don’t want to switch into any old boring shoes? Try experimenting with black mules with a twist. You don’t need to settle for plain shoes when it comes to work footwear, choose something that has embellishment or detailing to add more interest to your outfit.
Matching the colour of your flats to your shirt helps to keep your look cohesive, for example if wearing a black top, opt for shoes that are mainly black. Then choose a pair of trousers suitable for work that looks great with the rest of your outfit!
Can You Wear Mules with Evening Wear?
In short, yes you can! As with all fashion, the decision of what you wear is entirely down to you. We think that mules take evening wear from just elegant to both elegant and cool. Your outfit will be the envy of everyone at your event!
Why not keep your dress simple, choose something sophisticated made of silk then add flats with an intricate design. Not only will you be far more comfortable than anyone else wearing high heels, but you’ll also look phenomenal.
