Move Over Dad Sneakers, Mum Mules Are Here To Stay

This summer's hottest shoe trend

Dad – and grandad – sneakers have been all the rage this year and though Instagram tells us the trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, we’ve recently noticed the fashion pack ditch the ‘ugly shoe trend’ in favour of mules, more specifically, the mum mule. 

Consisting of a mid-heel (max two-inch) and a thin strap or two, the mum mule is perfect for the warmer months ahead, cute with jeans (mum jeans, naturally), feminine dresses, or with your favourite power suit to contrast feminine with masculine. 

Below, see how to style the trend before shopping for your own.
