Already adopted by bloggers (see Elin Kling and Camille Charriere) and street style stars like the achingly cool Vanessa Traina Snow and her sister Samantha Traina pictured here, this shoe has rocketed to the top of our spring wishlist. With offerings from designers such as Stella McCartney, Chloe, and Jason Wu, there are plenty of styles to choose from. Step this way to shop the leg-lengthening, slip-on style that goes with everything from midi skirts to frayed denim.
The low, chunky heel makes these easy to walk in, and the spiked detail will add edge to a cropped trouser.
Fendi Spiked Heel Pilifonia Mule ($690) in White
This sleek, patent style is ideal for a date. Echo the trompe d’oeil strap by wearing an off the shoulder top.
The lizard skin, interwoven straps, and muted brown color palette combine to make this the perfect tribal shoe, another big trend from the S/S 14 runways. Wear with tailored shorts or an army green shirtdress for the office.
Rachel Roy Lacey Lizard Embossed Leather Slides ($250) in Moccasin Nude
We’d love to wear these to Studio 54 but we’ll have to settle for wearing them on our next girls’ night out. Pair with a minimalist black jumpsuit and a smokey eye.
Tibi Britt Crystal Mule Wedge ($495) in Black
These suede mules show the tiniest sliver of skin. Allow them to peek out from under wide-leg pants.
Jeffrey Campbell Suede Malkin ($165) in Black
The front of these mules dip slightly, which will elongate your legs. Take advantage and style them with pencil skirts that hit at mid-calf.
