Mules, the semi-open shoes that can be combined with everything: buy them in summer 2023 and wear them until autumn
If you’re looking to invest in just one pair of shoes for the summer of 2023—and refocus your fashion investments—there’s only one answer: mules. In fact they are slippers with or without heels, which are worn as shoes for going out. A fashion born in the 90s and which has been experiencing great success in recent seasons not only for the revival of that decade but also for (or above all) their undeniable comfort. If sandals are a summertime privilege, these shoes may well be with us for the arrival of autumn, becoming a valid alternative to more classic slingbacks as well as being just as easy to wear. They can be worn without any delay, which is a remarkable quality if you are always in a hurry and are looking for easy yet effective styling solutions.
The outfit possibilities are practically endless: Muses go well with cigarette trousers or ankle, mini and midi dresses—like the ones seen by Valentina Belle at Bottega Veneta—but they also work perfectly with coordinated suits, colorful suits, and unstructured dresses. There are complements you can wear during the first days of autumn. The casual solution is by Hailey Bieber who pairs kitten heel mules by Jil Sander with straight jeans and a white T-shirt.

…and with a longer tip. This is the fashion combo to look out for if you are looking for a cute and trendy pair of mules. It was Jil Sander who started the trend (apparently Hailey Bieber’s) but there was no shortage of fashion variations by Prada and Alaya: the first with a 90s proposal in precious satin, the second with a long transparent tip “reinforced”. “With a leather heart.”
a great classic? Maureen by Malone Souliers (not too elongated toe and a strap that adorns the instep) and Messel by Manolo Blahnik (this time decorated with an elegant buckle) will never go out of fashion, the latter being Franca’s favorite. Between the shoes Sozzani.
Peep toe versions of high heel mules, colors, crystals and transparencies
Too high for barbie-like arched feet (example is Jennifer Lawrence in black Manolo Blahnik). In our proposals you will find the transparent version, but also precious crystals to brighten up the evening outfit and finally canvas to combine the mules with the different fashion combinations that you have in your wardrobe.
Among the brands that started the trend of open shoes, we certainly find The Attico and Amina Muaddi: both have made a surprising impact with sculpted or flared heels, hence the bell-shaped. A fashion idea that re-imagines even the most classic peep toe mules, which is why they’ll be a cult piece in your end-of-summer wardrobe as well.
