Mules have literally taken over the fashion world! This 90’s favorite has finally made it back on the fashion scene. It’s amazing how an overlooked shoe design has managed to stay on trend over the years, and become a welcome delight for celebrities, fashion bloggers and shoe lovers. By definition, Mules are shoes that are backless and often closed-toes, they can be any height, ranging from flat to high. Although not a favorite for many, it’s obvious the shoes are here to stay!

Let’s take a look at celebrities in mules that will definitely make you rethink your earlier predisposition about the backless delights.

You’ll know it’s a bracelet bag when you spot a giant, circular ring as the handle. While the Chloé Nile bag is easily one of the more recognizable options, many brands have followed suit with their own versions.

They will remind you of fanny packs for sure, but these new bags are more stylish than their ’80s counterparts. With updated designs and shapes, the only similarity between the old and new is that you wear them at waist level. The next time you get tired of slinging straps across your shoulders, just hitch your bag down low.
