Let’s cut to the chase: This season, we’re mad about mules. As we count the days until it’s officially spring on the east coast, we can’t wait to slip into a pair of new sandals, show off a fresh pedicure, and finally get some sun. And with ’90s trends continuing to influence today’s style, it’s no surprise that mule sandals are already flying off shelves. Heck, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Jennifer Aniston step out in a vintage pair from the Friends era and have them look totally 2023.
Of course, H&M is on top of it, with several new pairs of ’90s-inspired affordable sandals. We’re partial to the lower-heeled styles with interesting straps, but if you’re into high heels or wedges, they’re just as versatile with a pair of jeans as they are with a cute mini or midi tube dress.
Ahead, shop our favorite affordable mule sandals from our go-to’s (including several on major sale) and prepare to step out in style this spring. Bonus points for committing to the ’90s bit with rectangular sunglasses and a baguette bag.
