Mules

If you thought the mule was a fashion faux pas resigned to the ‘90s, think again. The backless style has received a youthful makeover from the chicest of designers, been paraded on the catwalks of Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors and Balenciaga, and quickly adopted by a raft of street style bloggers.
 
Sleek shapes juxtaposed with a chunky heel give this shoe some serious attitude. The new mules have an altogether more minimal feel – think of it as the big sister to the slider – and come adorned in everything from laser-cut leather to snakeskin.

Dress them up with a chiffon midi dress, flaunt your legs in a mini or keep it cool with tailored trousers and the ubiquitous Breton top.
