Why am I feeling as if it’s been months since I have updated you on anything at all! Seriously. OK, I have been crazy busy at work and after (psst I will be updating you on the ‘after’ bit pretty soon!) Anyway, crazy May is finally ending but not the Summer-Monsoon phase that we have here in India (especially Kolkata!). So while we are at it, let’s rush through this edition of the Spring-Summer Fashion Trends 2016, “Lust-Haves! From Ramp to Rack 4.0”. Here’s a quick-list to the previous posts in this series:

Today we are talking about the chicest part of a woman’s ensemble-SHOES! Right before this, I was wondering if it’s only me or are you people equally obsessed with shoes. Well, I could even call myself a shoe-snob! Though I do need multiple shoes for multiple occasions, not forgetting the colors and variants, but inspite of all that, what I majorly need is comfort! With my feet in comfort-zone, I can be as edgy, as adventurous as I want to with the outfit. But hey, let’s face it, not always do ‘comfort’ and ‘trendy’ go hand-in-hand. I remember this one last time I met a friend over lunch. We decided to walk to our college campus around a mile away and then walk around a little more! Hell I forgot I had my pumps on! To cut the long story short, I had ‘blister plaster’ on my feet for the entire next week! Yeah, I know I know.. *rolling eyes*
Anyway, so we were talking shoes! We were talking trend! And, we were talking comfort! Lo and behold, what do you think the fashion scene presents us with?
THE FLAT MULES!
Yeah they are back and back big time! This season, the fashion crowd is flipping for the ‘flat mule’ and in so many forms and textures be it loafers, sneakers, metallic, mesh or any other edgy form. Sigh! It brings back the memories of the 90s!
So, here, now, when dozens of Spring-Summer runways have brought forward the flat, front-covered, backless mules, even the celebrities could not NOT notice it!
Emma Watson (L) and Solange Knowles (R) in classic flat mules.
Absolutely no dos and don’ts with this trend. Wear it with anything and everything; the edgier, the better. In the Indian Online Shopping scene, alas, you might not really come across quite a great variety as compared to the ones such as at Nordstrom. You could check out Yesstyle.com (they’ve got free worldwide shipping for more than US$ 35 purchase). Anyway, I have tried gathering a few of the ones available in the Indian market.
Shop the Trend!
I will look up some more and list ’em up for you! Till then, rock the trend and let me know how you liked the chicest shoe trend this summer-the flat flat mules! See ya!
Happy Styling! Lots of Love! XOXO
