There’s a whole lotta mule lovin’ going on at the moment and with high-street offerings like this little pair it isn’t hard to see why. A comfortable and nowadays arguably more stylish alternative to sky-high heels and boots, the mule is the go-to shoe of choice amongst bloggers and editors alike. Today, I’m hailing these Next beauties. Boasting colourful embroidery and wrap detailing, these slip-ons embody an undoubtedly high-end look and excellently take centre stage to any outfit. But how one styles mules is of the upmost importance. I find that often a refined and classic piece is in danger of looking a bit fuddy-duddy but teamed with ankle grazing skinnies, a thick knit and an artsy little bag we achieve a practical, yet modern, every day outfit. Similarly, I can see these fellas looking fab with denim shorts and a relaxed t-shirt for the upcoming summer months. Fancy? Yup. Comfortable? Yah. Under £50? Yep!
