Bella Hadid and French Women Keep Wearing This Trending Trouser With the Same Elegant Shoe

Trends have a way of coming back around. We’ve already witnessed the resurgence of '90s prints and polo shirts, so the recent return of capri pants makes total sense. Once the go-to trouser trend of the '00s, capris—or pedal pushers, as some like to call them—are reclaiming their spotlight. This time around, it seems they're no longer just for casual weekends and beach vacations; today's most stylish dressers are reinventing the divisive style and pairing them with elegant footwear choices like heeled mules.

Take a cue from Bella Hadid who recently styled the trend in head-to-toe Ferragamo, pairing her capris with open-toe mules and an oversized black bomber for a super-luxury streetwear spin. Similarly, influencer Anne Laure Mais went quintessentially French in her Chanel mules and a classic blue and white striped button-down, proving that the trend is anything but dated.

Let me give you some pointers. For a tailored look reminiscent of the early '90s, pair them with strappy heels and an oversized blazer. Elevate the outfit further with statement jewellery and a sleek clutch—perfect for a night out. If you want something a little more laid-back, opt for chunky mules and a cosy knitted sweater, completing the look with oversized sunglasses and a baguette bag for an effortlessly cool ensemble.

Love them or hate them, the spotlight is currently on capri pants. Keep scrolling for the pairs we have bookmarked and the best heeled mules to style them with.
