Our new fave footwear: the modern mule

Is there a more versatile style than the mule? Smart, yet laid-back; dressy but also totally relaxed; this style can do no wrong. And it’s exactly the right shoe for this time of year in Canberra when it’s warm, but not really.

You’re spoilt for choice this season with the mule (see: flat slides, kitten heels, chunky heels, double-strapped, embroidered, tasseled, stiletto, velvet, satin, leather…). The options are endless with this ever-popular style.
