If you ever wondered what trends could come back from your childhood, look no further than the summer of 2017. Some of the most daring 90’s fashion trends are coming back in a big way this season and one of these is the mule! The mule is a slip-on shoe, preferably with a slight heel that can take your outfit effortlessly from office to crazy throwback disco parties the next. If you are on the lookout for a cleverly minimalist shoe that is both easy to wear and doesn’t have the uncomfortable straps of heels, then this is the shoe for you.
This year, its varying shades of pink, with anything from a dark raspberry to just the palest of pastels. Their un-fussy design makes them ideal to pair with anything, but if you want to push the 90s t rends further, why not try wearing them with some jeans and a spaghetti strap top?

These shoes are definitely more ladylike and look more like they were worn in Marie Antoinette France than the 90’s. The pale blue colour and kitten heel make them work equally well with some more avant-garde looks, like culottes and a breton top.(Zara Heeled Mules with Bow, £25.99)
Want the ultimate, glam, no-effort shoe? This one is it. These slip-on mules can take any outfit to the next level with the brocade detail and the gold bit feature on the front. Worn with ripped jeans, these mules would automatically give your second-hand jeans the elevated tone of a pair of custom-made Isabel Marant ones.

Kitten heels don’t have to be girly and cute. These understated ones with a pointed toe could be the ideal companion to more formal suits or coats, and the beige colour makes them the chameleon of your outfits, changing each one in turn with that wonderful exposed heel.(Topshop Jackson Kitten Heel Mules,£52)
Don’t know what shoes to take on holiday? These mules in a capri blue can take you from beach to restaurant in a flash, and their low heel makes them perfect for sight-seeing in the city as well. The double strap provides some stability, making this pair more akin with a sandal than a 90’s mule.
