Fun Mules

Mules are back with a bang; they’ve been given a revamp to what you could say is the more alternative shoe style and we’re loving it! The much-loved Mules have made a comeback as ‘Fun Mules’, and you can see why they have been given this name. This playful shoe trend can be seen in many varieties that could be chunky, with ornate heels, unusual materials, different straps etc, the kind of out there shoes that you would see on the runway. Mules are a firm favourite of many women not only for their appearance, but this is also due to the fact they’re super easy to slip on and off without the fuss of straps and backs. Fun Mules should be one of the heels you invest in for Spring Summer 2022, because who doesn’t like shoes that are hot AF yet practical?

Bold Colours

It’s natural that in the Summer there will be more colour in our wardrobes, but this year we see more bold colours than ever! The two most prominent colours of 2022 are orange and green, research into buying habits proved these are the most popular colours. The bold colour trend takes us back to the 60s and 70s, such a fun trend to get involved in. Nothing beats a colour clash, this is your moment to stand out from the crowd. Style a pair of green Platform Heels with an orange patterned long sleeve mini dress – a look that’s perfect for a night on the town with the girls. Looking for more of a causal look then why not keep it simple, team orange platform Mules with a pair of cropped flared jeans and white Tee. No need to wait until the summer, brighten up your whole winter outfit with bright red Stilettos.
