In case you haven’t noticed it yet, there’s a new trend taking over the world of fashion. As it turns out, it doesn’t even have a name yet, so we’re stepping in and naming it the “makeshift mule”. During Fall 2016 Couture Week earlier this month, Vetements styled a few of its looks with Manolo Blahnik slingbacks folded at the heel, thereby cementing this “free heel” look as one of this year’s coolest footwear styles. A quick look through your favorite street style blogs will provide further proof that this trend is catching on – and fast.
If you’re keen to try it out yourself, start with a pair of loafers. Give this wardrobe staple, perfect for any occasion from a business meeting to an evening out with the girls, a super cool update by simply flattening the back of the shoes. And, just like that, you’ve mastered the art of effortless-chic shoe styling. We personally love it because it’s two different looks for the price of one!
