Spring 2013 fashion trends: ankle strap mules

Ankle straps have been dominating the runways in Paris, New York, Milan and London over the past few seasons, and for spring 2013, the shoe style has found popularity on the ultimate heel height of the season; the mule.

Mules are traditionally slip on shoes with a 1-2” heel. For spring 2013, the mule takes on a new look with the addition of the ankle strap. This is actually a very practical addition to the mule; it is well known among Fashion-savvy shoe fans that mules are hard to walk in because they simply fall off!

The ankle strap is being shown in many ways on mules this spring 2013 season. There are Gladiator style ankle straps, simple ankle straps, ties and thick, bold ankle straps. Ankle strap shoes are being shown in many different trend styles including rocker chic, bright colors, classic fabrications, pastels and color blocking.

Anke strap mules for spring 2013 work perfectly with spring 2013’s A-line skirts, dresses and of course, cropped jeans! The ankle strap mule is a great way to sass up a pair of printed, colored or regular denim. For the right look, opt for cropped denim skinnies.
