I fell in love with mules because they go with EVERYTHING. Multiple times a year I used to find myself packing for Philadelphia (although I haven’t been back since last year and miss everything about it–thanks COVID) and wanting to bring shoes that could do double- (and triple-) duty instead of stuffing my suitcase with shoes I’d only wear once or twice. Mules go with all different types of jeans: from cropped to flare to skinny and even mom jeans–and they go with dresses as well.
Dr. Scholl’s & Kork-Ease Wedge Mules: Must-Have, Wear-with-Everything Shoes
I found a couple of hidden gems in the Nordstrom sale that are perfect. Both pairs of shoes are from brands known for their comfort (Dr. Scholl’s & Kork-Ease) and both are in colors that go with everything (black and brown). I LOVE the animal print on the Dr. Scholl’s Maxwell Mules, but the Kork-Ease Lanka Wedge Mules come in a really gorgeous brown (also in black and taupe). They’re both described as having a 3″ heel, but the Kork-Ease is slightly higher. They both have a cushioned footbed. but the Dr. Scholl’s is slightly cushier. The thing is, I can’t keep them both…right?? So, I need your help. Which mules do I hang on to?
Mules With Cropped (Faux Leather) Pants
These pants are still fully in stock, which I’m very surprised about since they’re super-comfortable and crazy versatile. Add a graphic tee for a casual look, a blazer for business-casual or a flirty cami for date night. (Also come in plus size!)
Mules With Cropped Straight Jeans
I still can’t get over the great fit of these jeans–and that wash? It’s kind of growing on me. The fact that the rise and length is perfect is really hard for me to overlook. And to be honest, I like the whiskering better than a deep dark solid wash…I guess this is another piece I need your help in deciding on!
Mules With Flares
The fact that you can wear these shoes with cropped jeans, skinnies and flares is a huge selling point for me. These particular flares are CRAZY long so I had to fold them under in the pics below…but the general idea works. They’re high enough to wear with flares that wouldn’t work with flats.
Mules With Skinny Jeans
I’m still waiting for my Good Waist jeans from the sale to come in, but since the Good Waist is my favorite fit from Good American, I have multiple washes I love–including these cropped black side-slit ones that are on sale for even less!

Mules With Mom Jeans
I find mom jeans to be really difficult to pair with shoes. I mean, I always want to reach for my strappy sandals or fancy party shoes, but those are…not…exactly practical. Especially these days. So mules? Perfect.
Mules With A Mini Dress
This is that Leith dress we all have and LOVE (in plus sizes too!) that comes in multiple colors. It’s a closet staple that can be styled a million different ways and when worn with mules, it’s casual and not too fancy.
Mules With A Maxi Dress
This is a favorite buy of mine from this summer. It’s an easy throw-on-and-go that’s super comfortable. I love the fact that it’s not super-tight around the belly and the side slits (on both sides!) give it some fun, flirty movement. I wear it so much that I’m thinking of buying that pretty plum color–especially since it’s at such a good sale price!
Mules With a Skirt
I love a good pencil skirt and button-up blouse for work, but this top is one of my favorites for summer (check out that back!). The colors work perfectly with blacks and browns and that shape is perfect on so many body types (click the link to see Shana wearing it multiple ways). Best part? It’s on sale…50% off!
Alright, so there you have it…multiple ways to style the mule. Now, which one do you guys like best? Which ones do I keep? (And thanks in advance for your help!)
