When it comes to shoe trends for 2018, there’s one shoe you can’t go wrong with, and that’s the mule. We’re seeing so many different variations – from the Gucci mule that gained popularity a few years ago, chic kitten heel mules, casual everyday mule slides, and that’s just the beginning.
This is one shoe that you can wear to the office, to church, outings with friends, lunch dates, date night, Sunday brunch, and that’s just the beginning. Mules have the power to dress up any outfit – from a distressed pair of skinny jeans and a suede moto jacket to a denim skirt and eyelet top, pretty spring inspired dress, etc. There are so many options!
A few weeks ago I bought a gorgeous and super affordable pair of mules during the Shopbop Sale, which I absolutely adore. I have wanted a pair of close-toed mules for the last year or so, but didn’t know if I could pull them off. These mules totally changed my opinion, updated my wardrobe and uplifted my mood! That’s when you know you’ve found a great pair of shoes.
Today, I’m excited to share a 15 fabulous pairs of low heeled mules for women of all ages. I also shared tips on how to style them for spring 2018. Enjoy! PS: I also featured even more gorgeous mules for women in the Shop The Post widget below.
Classic Gucci Mules We’re All Coveting
A few years ago, I remember reading one of my favorite style publications and was shocked that loafers were going to be one of the hottest shoes that year. I didn’t know what to believe, especially since I’m the type of person who lives in ankle boots, over the knee boots, sneakers, wedges and flip flops. That pretty much sums me up! Well, Gucci completely changed my mind when I spotted a pair of Gucci loafer mules. At that time they were so new that they sold out immediately (much like their popular belts and handbags). This season, I’m coveting this gorgeous pair of Gucci Princetown Loafer Mules in black. They’re classic and will look fabulous with nearly every item in your wardrobe. This is one shoe that you can wear for fall and winter too. Aren’t they stunning? This shoe also come in light pink (aka millennial pink), gold, and so many other colors! Which one is your favorite?
Beautiful Kitten Heel Mules
Do you remember this bow mule sandal post I featured last summer? I adore those Sam Edelman mules and still wear them! In fact, I love them so much that when I spotted these close toed Sam Edelman Lani mules in a similar shade, I knew I had to have them.
They look much more expensive than they are! You can’t go wrong with the gorgeous knotted bow detail either. They come in quite a few different colors, depending on the retailer. I bought them in this pretty blush tone, but I’m now coveting them in black, and mulberry pink.
Another thing I adore is the kitten heel, which is incredibly popular for spring, summer and fall 2018. They’re very comfortable on, which is an added bonus. These pretty mules look amazing with pants, skirts and dresses. They’re a must for a variety of occasions – from spring wedding guest season to Easter mass, brunch, the Kentucky Derby and nearly every event you have planned.
I added a Shop The Post widget to this section, as there are different colors to choose from. What color is your favorite? I want them all, especially the candy red suede, deep indigo and mulberry pink!
Chic Bow Mules You’ll Adore
I just couldn’t help myself, I found even more pairs of pretty mules with bow detail for spring. I’m not much for a masculine looking shoe, so anytime I find one with some type of bow detailing, I run toward it. Here are a few I’m coveting this season!
These lovely BP Maddy mules come in many colors and in different materials too! They’re available in suede and leather, and are super affordable at under $70.
Gingham Mules For Spring
There are so many things to love about these gorgeous gingham Gucci mules! It’s no secret that gingham is one of the hottest trends, and everything blue and white is definitely having a moment as well. These shoes are a definite win-win! I can see them paired with white skinny jeans, light denim and a pretty white top, a white skirt, etc. It’s totally up to you. They’re elegant and will be absolutely perfect at your Easter brunch or Mother’s Day celebration. Honestly, they’re so pretty, I would wear them 24/7!
Oversized knotted bow mules
It’s no secret, I can’t get enough of shoes with bow detailing! I adore my Yumi bow mules, my classic Tory Burch wedges with bow detailing across the front, my new pointy toe Lani kitten heels and that’s just the beginning. These fab Schutz D’Ana Knotted Loafer mule will definitely add a statement to any outfit. They come in multiple colors – from black suede to neutral, red, blue and more!

Beautiful black mule slides that you can wear time and time again.
White Gucci Loafer Mules
Where were these white Gucci loafers with red, blue and gold detailing during the Olympics? I would have worn them every day to cheer on Team USA! Aren’t they fabulous? One thing is definitely for sure, white shoes are having a moment this season! If aren’t too sure about the super trendy white ankle boots that are popping up on social media and in our favorite publications, you can always go with a classic white loafer. I have fallen head over heels in love with Gucci loafers, especially this fabulous pair. PS: They’re also available in black!
Affordable Blue Suede Mules For Spring!
These shoes will have you singing “don’t step on my blue suede shoes.” Okay, okay, they have ME singing this Elvis Presley hit/Carl Perkins hit! 😉 How gorgeous is this shade of blue? I love the pointed toe! It’s such a hot trend for spring! You can’t go wrong with the price point either.
Trendy Mules Under $70!
If you’re looking for a classic basic mule that you can wear often, you can’t go wrong with this pair by Steve Madden. In fact, they’re so inexpensive that you can buy multiple pairs in different colors. Since spring is nearly officially here, I’m personally going for mauve suede color. I’m trying to incorporate more color into my wardrobe this season.

Leopard Print Mules Are A Must
I’m one of the biggest leopard print fans around! I have leopard print sandals, ballet flats, sneakers, blankets, pillows and I might add my dog has a leopard print collar. This season I can’t get enough of these leopard print mules with trendy pearl detailing. Pearls are another popular trend this season, and add the perfect statement to these fabulous shoes.
