The holiday party season is nearly here and we always have a fun time sifting through our closets to create looks that will make Us the most fashionable attendees on the guest list. We have our eyes on lots of statement outerwear, accessories, going out dresses and shoes that standout and can be repeated and remixed all throughout the upcoming seasons.
One of our favorite methods is to update our shoe collection with new, unique footwear. A stunning pair of shoes can breathe new life into even our simplest clothing options, so they are a foolproof way to ensure our wardrobe is ready for literally any event we add to our calendar.
We currently have our hearts set on a pair of heeled mules that are perfect for wearing to parties, but can also be incorporated into an edgy street style look. Who says stilettos are the only way to step out for a soiree?
The Tory Burch Clara Mules are sure to make a fabulous statement with their kitten heel, classy pointed toe, nude shade and festive bow closure at the top. Sizes range from 5 to 10.5.
The interesting shape is balanced out by a neutral hue, making the mules incredibly easy to dress up and down! These shoes can be worn with an Us reader favorite one-shoulder sweater, cropped boyfriend jeans and a metallic clutch for a look that is both fun and sophisticated. We can also pull off these kitten heels by slipping into a midi length cashmere sweater dress and tossing a Tory Burch cross-body wallet over our shoulders.
While we adore the shoes in the Goan Sand shade (nude) above, they are also equally elegant in this black option available at Neiman Marcus in select sizes. Now this is a pair of heels in classic black that still manage to command attention!
The black Clara mules will look beautiful with a cropped menswear-inspired pants suit. When we want to put together different separates, we can wear the shoes with a turtleneck tucked into a pair of skinny jeans and topped with a boyfriend blazer. We could also wear it with shirtdresses or cropped jumpsuits.
Another way to have fun with this cool mule is to turn it into a full velvet moment! How cool would it be to pair this shoe with a matching velvet frock? The shoes can also be worn with our favorite velvet J.Crew tank, topped with a cardigan and jeans.
For anyone who loves the idea of this heeled mule, but is not into the kitten heel style, may find themselves falling for the flats version of this design. The best part? These flats are also on sale!
The Tory Burch Clara Bow Flats have a lovely pointed toe that looks graceful and dapper. Like the heeled mules, they can be worn with a nice variety of casual and dressy ensembles. Shoppers who purchased these flats raved most about how comfortable they are while maintaining a dainty, dressy look. Reviewers especially love the oversized bow, which sets the shoe apart from the simpler flats they already own. Several shoppers noted that they receive lots of compliments while wearing them out.
Peep how pretty these fall 2018 flats looked coming down the Tory Burch runway for style inspiration.
The flats gave this Tory Burch skirt suit a little extra flair.
Shoppers who would prefer to stick with the kitten heel and top bow design, but would love a slightly lower price point, may prefer this equally trendy Botkier suede style.
See it: Get the Botkier Women’s Pina Bow-accented Suede Kitten Heel Mule for $138.
The Botkier Women’s Pina Bow-accented Suede Kitten Heel Mule has a silhouette similar to the Clara mule, but it is made of a soft suede material instead of leather and velvet. Like the Clara style, this mule can be worn with jeans and a variety of tops. These heels are selling out fast all over the internet, but select sizes are still available on Amazon.
There are so many different ways to pull off the bow style mule this season! Prepare for lots of mixing and matching fun.
