From Bottega Veneta to The Row, Our Editors Swear by These 14 Going-out Shoes

I’m guilty of holding onto shoes for a bit too long, so this year I decided it was time to make room for something that’d balance style and comfort: a mule. Whether flat or with a heel, mules have been a classic in every women’s shoe collection for generations—and they’re still going strong. When I came across these heeled mules from By Far, a beloved brand of mine especially for its leather handbags, I couldn’t resist the urge to add to cart. The striking and unconventional grained leather, the softness of the fabric, the square toe, and the kitten heel all contribute to the edgy, yet cute look that I yearn to emulate in my personal style. I can’t forget to mention—they pair perfectly with my all-black going out ensembles, because who wears anything other than black on a night out? –Nikki Chwatt, Editorial Intern
