Step forward this spring and invest in the most covetable shoe trend of the season: the mule. Mules were seen at all four fashion week cities for spring/summer 2018, with everything from satin to velvet and suede options. The spring/summer 2018 collections played with the traditional styles and heel height with both flat mules and kitten heels favoured by designers from Salvatore Ferragamo to Aquazzura. Gucci mules remain some of the most coveted footwear items of all time and this season the brand has released new styles which are sure to be seen on many of the AW18 front rows. Those looking for elegant options should go for Christian Louboutin’s mules inspired by Marie Antoinette, with bejewelled embellishments, while a more affordable offering is provided by Mango, which has lots of beautiful mules including suede and leather versions.
