The Cutest Mules + Slides for Fall: Steals, Deals and Splurges

Isn't it crazy how when there's a super popular seasonal trend, you start seeing said trend worn everywhere when you never really paid much attention to it before? I feel as if that's what I say to nearly every trend I grow to love! The never ending selection of mules and slides/backless loafers this season is overwhelming when shopping and especially so when there's dupes for designer items, similar pairs at two totally different price points and when you're trying to decide how much you want to spend. I've always loved wearing sandals the most because they're just so easy to slip on and off (and it means it's summer, of course!) but now I'm loving all sorts of mules and loafers just as much! Here's some of the best mules/slides/loafers at three different price points to shop for this fall:

Under $50:

Hot Pink Bow Mules: I'm sure you've been seeing these a LOT lately but for good reason! They're $25 and you will love them! Plus, who ever said you can't wear hot pink in the fall and winter? ;)

Blush Loafer Mules: Target KILLS it with designer dupes lately, and while I'm all about treating yourself to a splurge I do love finding a good dupe! They're nearly identical to these Gucci loafers and are extremely comfortable.

Navy Velvet Loafer Mules: grab these while you can, because they're on sale for $35! Navy, velvet and a pair of shoes you'll wear all season long!

Burgundy Bow Mules: when I saw these I bought them in a second because I knew they'd sell quick and I LOVED them. They are a little bit pointier at the top than I'm used to, but I really like them and can't wait to wear them for the holidays - they're the perfect burgundy shade!

Under $100:

Scallop Leopard Print Slides: to all my fellow girls who once dragged their moms into Limited Too and bought ALL of the leopard things circa 2002-03, it is BACK. Haha! I LOVED leopard print as a little girl and I am so excited that it's so trendy again.
Mustard Suede Bow Mules: the black leather version of these mules have had my eye for quite some time now; but aren't they so pretty in this mustard shade? They'd be so pretty to dress up a simple outfit - there's a TON of other colors if these aren't for you though!

Black Bow Mules: I know, another bow... but tell me these aren't the cutest! If you're going to buy just one pair of mules this season (good luck with that - I said the same and now I'm 4 pairs deep, ha!) let it be a black pair; you'll wear them on repeat this season!

Mauve Suede Pearl Embellished Mules: while you probably wouldn't wear these every day, they're so pretty and the pearls are the perfect little detail. I love this mauve color, it's by far the best fall neutral!

Under $200:

Rose Velvet Mules: while these are pricier at $110, they're worth it! They also are a great alternative to these blush pink, velvet Tory Burch slides which are beautiful, but $238 more than these.

Burgundy Tassel Mules: this burgundy shade is beyond stunning, isn't it?! There's more neutral shades, but burgundy in the fall and winter gives me all of the heart eyes. They have pretty tassels too!

Nude Leather Bow Slides: if you want a pair of totally neutral mules, these are the perfect find! They have pink undertones but are nude and have the prettiest detailing.

Sand Suede Mules: I talk about these a LOT, and I bought them during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this past summer but I'm considering getting them in another color at full price because I absolutely LOVE the way they make my feet look! They're slimming (I have wider feet), don't fall off of your feet when you walk like some open back shoes will and are surprisingly a perfect fall walking shoe!


  1. Love the hot pink + burgundy options under $50! I definitely need to head to a store this weekend to try on a few pairs!

  2. I absolutely love the Blush & Hot Pink Mules under $50! Truthfully, I can't get enough of all things blush RN!

  3. I've been wearing my mules much more than I thought I would!! I love the hot pink ones- how fun are those?!

  4. These are all super cute! Slides are seriously the best and probably my favorite type of shoe!

  5. Mules and loafers are making such a big comeback right now! I honestly have never worn them myself, but I'm trying to expand my horizons :)

  6. I just couldn't get on board with mules and slides at first, I felt so weird about my heel being exposed but now I can't get enough of them!

  7. Love the under 50 options! So many good options here.

  8. Mules are too cute! I've been wanting some for a while, but it takes me some time to act when I purchase things.

  9. Great picks! I'm always up for splurging if it's a good pair of shoes!

  10. I splurged on a pair of leopard mules and I am obsessed, they are perfect for so many casual fall outfits!

  11. Omg! All so cute! I need those hot pink ones nowwww

  12. Okay the Steve Madden mules with the pearls on the heel - NEED!!

  13. I am OBSESSED with mules right now. I've got three pairs and don't see signs of stopping -- I LOVE those pink Target ones but they're sold out, wahhh!

  14. These are all so great! I need to find a pair of mules, perhaps the pink ones would be best : )

  15. So many cute mules! I don't have a pair yet but I really want to get one :)

  17. They're so cute, I just don't know if I would wear them much in the northern climate? Or maybe I have no imagination.

  18. The Navy loafer is fabulous. It would look good with so many of my outfits.

  19. Okay now I need some of these for fall! So cute and comfy!
