- Also such a model will also be suitable for a trouser or skirt suit for office work.
- Shoes with a massive heel harmonize well with a mid-length skirt. Wearing a white tank top, denim skirt and brown leather mules, you will look slightly careless, but stylish.
- High stiletto heeled mules will visually elongate the silhouette, making the body more proportional.
- If you need to spend a lot of time on your feet, opt for shoes with a medium (and better stable) heel, or a flat sole.
Flat sole: no heel
Flat-soled shoes are especially comfortable for constant movement. They can be worn when walking around the city, visiting museums and exhibitions, or art galleries.
Flat-soled mules are perfect for doing everyday things. They look good with skinny jeans, 7/8 length pants, linen pants, and pleated skirts. They are no less good with straight skirts or dresses with a straight silhouette. Some models look great combined with shorts and shirts.
Leather shoes look austere, stylish, expensive and elegant. Closed leather mules can be worn with classic pants and blouses, skinny pants and oversize shirts. For summer 2022 will be a relevant combination of open mules with an acute or rounded toe with wide linen pants.
Textile sandals are good because they have good air permeability, thanks to what the skin of the feet “breathes”, and therefore rests. This is especially important in summer. In these shoes, you will feel comfortable and light for a long time. You can combine them with pants made of lightweight denim and T-shirts, airy light dresses, and sundresses.
What’s the difference between sabots and mules
If you are far from fashion and do not understand shoes like Cary Bradshaw from the famous Hollywood series, it is unlikely that you understand the difference between mules and sabots. Let’s figure it out:
- Sabots were created, by and large, to be worn comfortably, that is, to allow the feet to rest and not to accentuate the main attention of others.
- The sabots are stable, and have a good fit over the foot.
- They can be either closed or open.
- They have a wide platform, a stable wide heel or a flat sole.
- Designed for everyday wear.
- Mules always have a heel, no matter how minimal, but they will.
- Distinguished by their elegance and look more feminine than sabots.
- Suitable for both everyday wear and formal occasions.

. Stylists recommend using red mules as an accent component of the outfit, or as a compliment if the top of the look has elements of red. For example, it could be a black suit or a red T-shirt in tandem with blue jeans.
In 2022, designers offer shoes in rich green, olive, or khaki colors. They can be combined both with clothes of basic shades (black, white), and with clothes of brighter colors, such as dark blue, mustard, yellow, lemon, light gray, coral, fuchsia, and electric blue.
Mules can be worn not only as shoes every day or for work in the office, but also for special occasions. Additionally, they can be decorated with different metal inserts, buckles, large chains, sequins, rhinestones, weaving and other decorative elements.
