12 Stylish Mules To Slide Into This Spring/Summer '19

When it comes to work-appropriate shoes, you don’t need a pair of sky-high, strappy stilettos to feel empowered. Consider comfort and style instead. Enter: mules. From peep-toe iterations to flats and cover-ups (for days when a pedi is in order), slide into our selection above the next time you head into the office.


Braided leather mules by Souliers Martinez, £340 (S$590), via Net-a-Porter
This pair is woven using traditional Spanish hand-lacing techniques, and designed to have a contemporary edge. Complement with a loose blouse tucked into a high-waist pencil skirt.   Velvet and satin mules by Malone Souliers, US$546 (US$747), via Matchesfashion
We love this pair of Malone Souliers heels for its contrasting textures and quirky shape. It’s eye-catching, so your outfit can be simple. Wear this with a soft blouse and a flowy swing skirt.   Embellished velvet mules by Dorateymur, S$656, via Farfetch
With its lovely pink shade and smooth velvet material, this piece is oh-so-feminine and flirty. The faux pearl detail on its upper adds a tinge of glam. Let it stand out by pairing it with a simple cotton shirt and a pair of smart trousers. Satin mules with crystal embellishment by Manolo Blahnik, S$1,365, via Farfetch
Your shoe closet will not be complete without a pair of iconic Hangisi heels from Manolo Blahnik. It had its 10th year anniversary last year, and while it began its journey as a pair of pumps, it has evolved into several styles such as boots, flats, and of course, mules. We’d love to see this pop against a white minimalist-style dress.   Leopard print lurex mules by Sophia Webster, US$430 (S$589), via Matchesfashion

We are in love with the gold-tone circular heel of this delicious pair. It gives a cool edge to these pointed-toe mules. Play up this quirky heel detail by wearing with a black silk blouse and some cropped relaxed-fit jeans.   Faux leather mules by Stella McCartney, £395 (S$686), via Net-a-Porter
This pair of Stella McCartney heels are fashioned in Polyurethane (PU), which is a material that’s more sustainable than Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). Rock this pair of barely-there sandals with a silk-satin midi dress for work, or with a bra top, a blazer and a pair of cycling shorts for the weekends.   Leather mules by Zara, S$159
This pair of shoes may look deceptively simple, but look closer and you’ll see that it sports ocean blue soles and a metallic emblem. Wear this dreamy piece with an oversized linen shirt dress.     V-cut leather mules by Topshop, S$149
When it comes to shoes, don’t be afraid to go bold. Something vibrant and cheery like these leather mules will brighten up any stiff office outfit, such as a monochromatic skirt-suit.   Satin mules by Pedro, S$79.90
PSA: you can be stylish yet sensible at the same time. Try this pair of low-heeled satin mules from Pedro, which features unique asymmetrical sides and a sleek pointed-toe design. Style this elegant piece by wearing with a cotton midi dress.     Braided mules by H&M, S$54.95
The braided faux leather upper gives this monochromatic pair of mules an interesting spin. Keep to the colour scheme by wearing it with a black-and-white colour block shift dress.   Block heel mules by Charles & Keith, S$56.90
