Mules are back, and in a big way. Like Carine Roitfeld, I vividly remember the annoying whap-whap-whap sound they made as someone walked down the halls of Vogue. But according to an article by Meenal Mistry in the WSJ on the resurgence of the backless slip-on, even Carine has come around and now likes them. I like them too, especially with the higher heel. And Meenal gives good advice on how to wear them today– paired with a longer skirt or cropped slim pants is best.
