What exactly is the mule?
A mule is a French word for a shoe that’s (usually) closed in the front and (always) open in the back. Often referred to as a cross between a wedge, an ankle boot and a clog, mules combine the best of all three variants. What makes mules a hit with women is the fact that they are super comfortable and easy to slip on. They also offer support to the front of the foot and go with all kinds of outfits, including pants, skirts and shorts.
Mules came into mainstream fashion in the 1950s when Marilyn Monroe began to wear them often. Since then, there’s been no looking back. Besides, mules are ideal in the warm, humid climate of Mumbai where comfort rules over everything else.
How to wear them
<h4>With cropped trousers</h4>

Mules look best when paired with cropped pants. Full-length trousers tend to drown out the shoe whereas cropped pants showcase the shoe in all its glory. A stiff, ankle-length pair of jeans go perfectly well with mules. Here are some styling ideas below to pair your cropped trousers with mules.
<h4>With miniskirts, shorts and playsuits</h4>
