These shoes always make me think of Sex and the City. They’re just the kind of thing that Carrie Bradshaw would have had in her closet, don’t you think? The fact that they remind me of a show that premiered nearly 20 years ago (!) is a testament to just how timeless they are. You really can’t put a date on Manolo mules. They’re the kind of shoe that you’ll love today, tomorrow, and forever after that.
Whether they’re Manolo or not, the kitten-heel mule is just a true classic. It’s a feminine style that seems to instantly add polish to any outfit – whether that’s jeans and my favorite striped tee or something a little nicer like this new shirt dress I just ordered. Kitten-heel mules are understated, but chic – and, unlike their stiletto and platform counterparts, they don’t add any sort of bulk to your look. It’s also worth mentioning that they’re easily one of the most comfortable heels ever, making them a year-round essential.
The selection for spring is nothing short of wonderful. On the splurge side, there’s the “Coco” from The Row, Malone Soulier’s metallic options, this pair from Proenza Schouler, and Balenciaga’s newest neon pink pair. If you’re looking for something with a wedge heel, check out this pair from Trademark. At the moment, I’m really loving this white Club Monaco pair. (They’re also available in navy.) They go with everything and will easily get worn a million times this season. The price is great, too, offering a lot of bang for your buck.
