Your toes might not have seen fresh air for about six months, and the thought of sandal shopping might be very unappealing when it's still 12 degrees outside. However, this is actually the best time to buy sandals before the shopping stampede that happens when it suddenly gets hot outside. There's one pair of sandals in particular that our whole team is loving—a pair of brown leather mules with a curved heel, which are £70 at Mango. They are simple enough to go with your summer wardrobe, but the colour of the leather gives them a vintage feel, and the shape of the heel makes them a standout shoe on the high street right now.
Brown mules are poised to be a key sandal trend this summer, as By Far, Staud and Mansur Gavriel have all created these slip-on sandals in chocolate and caramel colours. Alyssa Coscarelli shows that you can wear these before the weather turns, as she wore her Mango mules with a pair of beige ankle socks and a checked skirt suit.
