Since my current casual/minimal style feels like I transported back to the 90s — high-rise jeans, lots of easy tees, every oversized button-down I can get my hands on, all the denim — it’s only fitting that I’m on totally on board the mule trend. The slide-on shoes made a big comeback this year, with iterations in every color, fabrication, and heel-style. I’ll take mine in a colorful suede or neutral leather with a little block heel, please and thank you.
I think Anna officially sparked my mules obsession when I saw her wearing red suede mules from And Other Stories on her Instagram. I started thinking about how easy and effortless they were, and how the pop of color would be perfect with everything from jeans and a white tee, to a double-denim OOTD, to a little black dress. I’ve cruised TJ Maxx and my Hautelook app on many occasions looking for a similar budget-friendly pair, and I found these embroidered numbers for $20! I’m wearing them with everything, but still on the hunt for that perfect colorful pair.
Here are some of my favorite picks, all under $100. Just click ’em to shop!
