“Give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world.” These very true words were said by Marilyn Monroe herself, and I couldn’t agree more. Give a girl the right pair of shoes, or a great hair day and we can definitely conquer, not the world, but the universe. However, even though we all want that amazing, perfect pair of shoes; the description of that shoe can be very different from one woman to another. After all, we are all very unique. Think about it. While you might love a great pair of nude pumps to lengthen your legs, your friend might be obsessed with strappy heels. Finding the perfect shoe that defines your personal style is all about experimentation and letting all sorts of shoes into your closet to style and play with.
Today I’m focusing on a style that will appeal to all those ladies who appreciate a modern aesthetic, simplicity, and want a little bit of edge. If that sounds like you, you might love to treat your shoe collection and feet to a pair of mules. This once outdated style has had a recent revamp and now comes in all sorts of colours, materials, embellishments, heel heights and designs to please absolutely anyone. One of the best things about the mule is that you just need to slip your foot in and you are ready to go.
Like I mentioned above, mules come in all sorts of materials and designs. This means that you are bound to find the perfect mule for pretty much any occasion. You can wear a point-y, high-heeled black satin mule for that Friday night date. Wear with a fun and flirty red dress, red lips and a statement piece of jewellery. Meeting up with a friend for brunch on Saturday and running some errands afterwards? You can find a leather pair of mules with a chunky heel. To make the shoe extra comfortable when completing your errands, don’t be afraid to consider chunky heels that are made out of rubber (that’s very 90’s). You can pair them with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a fun printed t-shirt, a big colourful bag and statement necklace. You can even find a great pair for the office! Make sure it has a comfortable heel, and that it preferably covers your toes, for that professional look. These would look amazing with a pencil skirt and blouse. Add a fun lipstick colour to your lips and small, dainty accessories to take you from nine-to-five. Brands like Topshop, and Tibi have some fantastic options.
So, you see, mules can be worn by any woman regardless of their personal style. The trendy gal, as well as the boho queen, and everyone in between is able to shop for that perfect pair that’ll reflect their personal style and lifestyle. The key to scoring the perfect shoe is to be open to the possibilities. Look around, see what catches your eye, try it on and visualize how it’ll look with pieces you already own in your closet. My number one piece of advice is to pay attention to how you feel in the shoe. Does it make you feel sexy, empowered, pretty? You want to be able to put that shoe on and feel instantly happy and comfortable. Never underestimate how your mood will change the minute you slip on a pair of shoes you can stand and walk in freely. A shoe that makes you smile will let you share that smile with the rest of the world.
