Out of the boudoir and onto the street. Not a slipper. Not a pump. Not a slingback. The mule is a modern pleasure. Seductive, strong and confident and –  dare we say – comfortable. Its versatility speaks right to the current mood: dressed up without trying too hard. A more refined evolution of our pool slides obsession, no doubt. With the days growing longer and our nights heating up, now is the time to start experimenting with bare ankles. From sunrise to sunset, here’s five ways to slide into summer and hit refresh on a cult favourite.

As we’ve seen on all the Venice Beach cool kids, almonds are inspiring not just our smoothie recipes. Flat tan mules softly-rounded at the toe are this season’s update. Pair with laid-back button-ups and high-rise linen pants in colours like coffee and taupe.

The clash

The clash

Any excuse to wear a boilersuit. Go utilitarian all over and save your feminine indulgence for fancy footwork. We love a military khaki onesie and a black velvet point (keep the heel low for simple day-to-night conversion). ATP Atelier’s Nicola shoe is perfect.

Casual femme

Walnut Melbourne Francesca Leather Mules

Casual femme

Dresses over jeans, it’s a thing and we’re into it. Ideal to enrich off-duty moments like lunch with the girl gang. Or casual afternoon drinks. Visualise white prairie dress over your baby blues. A slit detail will enhance the combination. Add to that a bit of lo-fi glitz with a metallic loafer. Just the right balance of masculine / femme.

Suit you

Suit you

Suiting finally got fun with matching oversized blazers and workman trousers. For this micro-trend instead of the modern sneaker edge go all out 70s and wear a pair of slide-on block heels in any honey-hue.

Loaf around

Loaf around

The black loafer is a high-performing essential. Easily worn with jeans or your 9-5 wear. But equally beloved for its ability to elevate the feel of your everyday dress. A minimalist ankle-grazing dress or skirt with an asymmetric detail looks cool AF. And gives a bit of mod edge to a look that may be a bit floaty for some of us.
