the mule

mule spring 2014 trend

Last summer I hinted that the mule was coming back. Recently the Wall Street Journal declared it spring's "freshest footwear." Already championing this backless style are style pioneers like Vanessa Traina (who has them in multiple colors), her sister Sam (below in the white jacket) and model Anja Rubik. I want to jump on the bandwagon with one (or more!) of these guys from Alexander Wang (60% off, or this one that's 50% off), Steven (also in black), Manolo Blahnik, French Connection, L.A.M.B., and Gianvito Rossi.

I bet Zara will come out with a good mule

I'm with you. I think Zara will do a good job! But I really like some of these suggestions, and I don't think we had nude mules the last time around (I wish I'd kept those old shoes).

Here's a question for you, Marlien. I keep seeing harem pants, and slouchy fitting pants. Is this a trend that is here to stay? Will it grow? Are we giving up skinny jeans, or just supplementing them? Even a store like Eileen Fisher has harem pants! Are these pants selling and will they really go mainstream?

I love mules, love them. I think they are so flattering - almost universally so.
