Ankle cleavage is a thing—or at least it will be this spring with the return of the stacked mule sandal. This open-toed, slip-on style trotted out from the boudoir, onto the Spring 2016 runways ofGucci and Céline, and quickly attached itself to such sure-footed chic stars as Jennifer Lawrence, Dakota Johnson, and Solange Knowles. With no ankle strap to cut off those lengthy limbs, the mule extends the leg to create a leaner, longer line.
And no matter the height—from Mansur Gavriel’s towering 4-inch ’70s-inspired leather platform, to Dear Frances’s demure 2-inch heel—the mule elevates any ensemble. Whether paired with polished sundresses for the office or frayed denim for drinks after work, the mule’s innate sense of chic ease offers round-the-clock glamour. Here, we zero in on the 10 best new styles we’d like to slide right into our spring wardrobes.
