Slip style dresses aren’t the only 90’s fashion moment that we’re obsessing over for spring bridesmaid inspiration. The classic mule has been reimagined by some of the chicest designers and is evoking thoughts of supreme sophistication and elegant refinement.
Bridesmaid’s shoes can be one of the trickiest things to find and while the mule might not be a style you would traditionally consider, new looks have put a modern spin on the classic shoe and have given it a refined elegance that is perfect for bridesmaids. The shoe is cooler, the heel higher and the silhouette more modern. Gone are the clunky styles and instead a much sleeker, much chicer shoe has emerged.
While there are chunkier, more casual styles available, our favourites bring a delicate femininity and slim look to the trend with a pointed toe. Soft suede styles in taupe and dove grey, butter leathers and black satin all complement whimsical, feminine dresses. Draw inspiration from a 90’s Carrie Bradshaw and the gypset mood evoked at Zimmermann’s show and contrast with delicate chiffons, lace and floating silhouettes. If you are opting for a bold, punchy colour like black, keep the palette of the dresses to light pastels. Minimalistic dresses that feature structured tailoring and clean lines will also work with this trend.
