13 Mules Made For A Night Out

This spring’s primo going-out shoe isn’t a pump or a strappy sandal. Rather, it's the trusty slip-on once reserved for the over-70 crowd (to pair with their muumuus), ‘90s cool girls (looking at you, Cher Horowitz), and, occasionally, the boudoir. You guessed it — we're talking mules and the throwback style's getting updated with stiletto heels, metallic finishes, and strappy accents to become the shape of the season.
Don't look so dubious; The backless shoe has the power to instantly refine just about anything you’re wearing. Headed on a romantic date? Paired with a midi-skirt mules will elongate your legs. A clunky option with slim-cut trousers lends a self-assured vibe fit for work (or a night out with frenemies). No matter your choice, the new mule is definitely something worth slipping into. And, we’ve culled 13 styles ahead to back that point up.
