Raid Your Grandma's Shoe Closet — and Look THIS Cool

Apr 21 2015 - 2:35pm

Spring's mule trend [1] was born, thanks not just to the iterations we saw stomping the runways, but largely thanks to the ever-stylish girls wearing them on the street. Like most things, you might not have known you wanted a pair till you saw a cute girl with a great outfit that included a pair of this season's easy slides. Before that, we wouldn't totally blame you if you thought mules were more "grandma" than trendsetter.

So, whether you need proof of their style potential to finally make your purchase or just want a few inspired ways to wear the ones you've been keeping in your closet, we tracked down a few street-style-setters with the looks to show you the way. Scroll on to get all the outfit ideas you need to pull off one of the season's biggest footwear trends like a pro.

Yasmin Sewell took the trend for a walk with a casual-cool denim look. The ankle crop means those mules are on full display.

Adding mules to this trouser-and-coat combo makes it all feel a little more nonchalant and not quite so buttoned up.

Eva Chen's mules have the same posh appeal that her furry topper and skirt do. The pointed toe lends the same vibe as a pair of pumps, but the open back feels much more current — as does the see-through strap.

With pompoms, these mules feel just a bit boudoir-inspired, but this style setter balances out the playful vibe with a tomboy sweatshirt and soft petal-pink skirt.
