Now that’s it’s officially May, there’s no excuse for us to not debut our collection of sandals. One shoe trend that refuses to go unnoticed is the resurgence of the mule. These slide sandals last reached their peak a little over a decade ago, and were often accompanied with heavy platform soles a la the Spice Girls. Thankfully, this new batch has undergone a makeover. Sleek, stiletto heels and sexy silhouettes have replaced the clunky footwear from the 90s.

However, styling these shoes have proven to be a challenge for many women. So, let’s break down each mule to see what we should be rocking them with. Closed-toed styles like these black suede Guiseppe Zanotti ankle boots have enough of a professional flare that they can be worn in the office. To keep a sleek line, it’s best to pair them with dark trouser pants instead of a shift dress. For a fun night on the town, go for a style that packs a bunch. These red-hot Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and snake-print Gianvito Rossi sliders add a touch of sexiness to any LBD. Now, for those casual occasions, a fun funky pair like these springy heels from Sophia Webster and metallic pair from Stella McCartney look amazing when paired with dark-wash denim skinny jeans. Finally, for those days when you want to give you feet a rest, slide-on sandals like this buckle style Chloé are way better than your ordinary flip-flops.

So, there you have it – a complete style guide of how to wear this season’s hottest shoe trend! So, what are you waiting for? Those mules are calling your name!
