  • Get summer-ready in your new go-to shoes! Mules are a comfortable and stylish way to step into the new season. Which will you fall for?

    If the woman&home office could be described as a shoe, we would undoubtedly be these Clarks Turin Black Leather Slingbacks, £40. Comfortable, stylish and always reliable, so many of us own a pair that it’s an almost-daily occurance to see these striding past our desks. And the reason we love them so much? They’re the perfect between-season buy, of course!

    Whether you go for a summer-ready open toe or try an unusual pointed style, slingback mules provide all the style and sophistication of a high heel, but with more breathing space for your feet on summer days. The slingback provides support – and stops them from slipping off! – whilst the fashion-forward mule style will earn you more than a few approving glances.

    Wondering what this versatile style can be worn with? Well, almost everything, of course! For a simple look, pair them with skinny jeans and a T-shirt. Try adding a grungy edge to a stylish midi skirt with a peep toe pair and a T-shirt, or try sophisticated luxe with pinted mules and a stylish cardigan. They’ll even add a fashion-forward edge to your everyday office attire – just wear with your everyday skirts or dresses, add a stylish coat and watch how your look transforms instantly.

    Perhaps the best thing about this style is the comfort. A low heel, which is often a block style, gives you a boost – without the pain you usually get from a day of wearing high heels! That, coupled with the supportive slingback and peep toe, makes for the perfect wear-anywhere heels. That’s why we’re such big fans!
