WTWW – How to Wear Mules

Hello! It’s time for another edition of What to Wear Wednesday. This week we are enjoying the warmer Spring weather in the PNW. We thought it would be fun to show you how to wear mules. A mule is a closed-toe open-heel shoe that comes in different heel heights. We love them as an alternative to wearing a sandal.

What is more comfortable than wearing a pair of broken-in jeans? Wearing them with a mule! A mule is a good way to be comfortable but still look polished enough for a casual day at work or going out in the evening. We like the way this Halmanera pointed toe style looks with a tapered jean. These would also look fantastic with a pair of black kick-crop pants as well.

So you feel like wearing shorts but sneakers and sandals feel too casual for streetwear or a casual work environment. This silver moccasin style mule looks as smart as wearing a loafer, but is as comfortable as a slipper. We like the metallic silver because metallics are a great neutral as an alternative to basic black or brown. Wear these with everything!

We love the look of mules so much, that we designed and developed our own style. Our Madora style comes in 5 colors. We like the way this re-souL collection version looks with skirts and dresses. The cut of the vamp in a deep-V, makes your legs look longer. Bonus! These would also look amazing with wide-leg crop pants too.

 

So hopefully we have inspired you to try out wearing mules. What do you think? Which mule could work for you?
Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the rest of the week! ~ team re-souL

Searching for the Perfect Black Flat?

the re-souL collection: Black Flats

“I’m searching for the perfect black flat” is a phrase we hear often at re-souL. A shoe that does it all. A shoe that can transition seamlessly from day to night. We believe all of the LBF’s (little black flats) shown above can do just that. Dramatic and flattering, yet oh so versatile. For a more dressed up feel go for the pointed toe “Muriel“, “Margot” or “Mia” and for a more casual look, the “Bret” oxford or the “Nova” basic flat would do the trick.

Spring Trend: Monochrome

One of the biggest spring trends this season is the idea of a monochrome wardrobe. Having an edited down wardrobe makes it way easier to get dressed in the morning. We all lead busy lives and having a “uniform” of sorts in your closet makes it one less thing to worry about when getting dressed for the day.

This by all means doesn’t mean boring. You can still play with pattern and add accessories to add some flair to your look. Black, white, cream and shades of grey look great on most, so having shoes that coordinate with your minimal palette is essential.

Spring is fickle, it can feel like all four seasons in a day. Therefore, layering is the key to helping get through those months of manic weather. Same goes for these oxfords. Wear them with socks to ward off the chill, wear them without when the sun is shining brightly.
