A touch of fashion trend is a good thing because it keeps us looking current and visible. I’m not a fan of head to toe trend…that screams fashion victim. But when one fits my style, I embrace it. Let’s look at what’s new for 2017.
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my collaboration with Pam from Over 50 Feeling 40. You’ve hit your Style Sweet Spot when your appearance is sending the message you intend, and you feel confident that you look your best. This is the start of a 4-week series on fashion trends for Spring/ Summer 2017.
The trend I’m loving this week is the mule. A slip on shoe, without a back, these shoes are easy to wear and look fresh. They’re available in flats, block heels, high heels and sneaker mules. Fur lined or edged, pointy-toed or round, metallic or suede, you name it… they’re available at all price points.
I love these suede Sam Edelman backless loafers. The tassels add a preppy detail to their feminine shape. They’d look great with skinny jeans or cigarette pants.
These Louise et Cie mules feel more casual to me. Their twisted leather top looks creative and more sporty.
These Eileen Fisher ones are already in my shopping cart. Eileen Fisher shoes are incredibly comfortable and this color combo will go with everything in my wardrobe.
Mules work best with skirts, capris or ankle length pants. Longer pants get stuck under your heel which feels awkward and looks sloppy. This is an easy to wear, comfortable trend that will be in style for several years to come.
FLAT MULES I LOVE
When wearing mules, be aware your heels are on display. Be sure the skin is pumiced and hydrated. NOTHING looks worse than dry cracked heels.
Now let’s go see what trend Pam is sharing this week.
