This Fall Shoe Trend Is Back, and It's Even Better Than Before

Flat Mules Wandler @lindatol_



Sure, I know you’re thinking But flat mules never went away! (and I agree!). But I also don’t recall getting as excited over as many pairs as I have for the upcoming season. The former trend-turned-basic has been coasting for quite a while now but if like me, you haven’t picked up a new pair in years, F/W 21 might just finally be the time to.

Thanks to countless cool designers including (but not limited to) Wandler, Proenza Schouler, JW Anderson, and more, the shoe style has been elevated to wardrobe must-have for fall, and with the help of brands like ASOS, Zara, and H&M, it’s accessible to everyone, too. In fact, finding 29 Who What Wear–approved pairs was actually quite easy. And on that note, to see and shop all the flat mules I'm loving for the months ahead, simply keep scrolling. 

I know you were eyeing them above on Linda Tol, and I don't blame you!

H&M always coming through with the under-$50 option.

For when you want to keep it casual.

These are definitely among my top favorites.

The Row always has the perfect version of everything.

I'm so into all the styles with shearling details—especially for fall.

At 5'2", I'm always game for extra height.

Now entering the "cool on TikTok" category.

It's hard to compete with this classic pair for $33.

Tory coming through with the ready-for-work version.

Just add jeans and a sweater and you're ready to welcome the new season.

I bet these would look so good with trousers.

I couldn't help but include this iteration by Wandler, too.
