It's easy to get into a habit of reaching for the same black shoes every morning, which is why Emma Roberts' green mules are the perfect addition to any closet full of neutrals. Yes, Roberts found the coolest way to liven up a basic pair of shoes, and it involves a pop of color you've never considered until now. Prepare to add green shoes to your shopping cart — they're that good.
In a recent Instagram post, Roberts shared one of her latest cool-girl ensembles. Her outfit centered around a few basics: classic high-waisted jeans, a printed button-down by Rails, and sleek gold hoops. Roberts finished off the look with her usual aesthetic (think: perfectly imperfect hair and barely there makeup).
But the 27-year-old's shoes were the real statement piece of the ensemble. Roberts opted for deep-green, patent-leather mules for an unexpected (but welcomed) pop of color. The unique shoes featured the perfect square toe and large tortoiseshell buckles.
While green may seem like an unexpected color for footwear, Roberts isn't the only one who's eyeing the color this season. Major designer names like Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, and Tibi all debuted various pieces of unique green shoes on their Spring 2019 runways, including lime-green snakeskin boots and glossy, emerald-green pumps.
But getting in on the green-shoe trend doesn't mean you'll have to shell out serious cash — unlike a pair of Balenciaga boots, Roberts' mules are surprisingly affordable. The mules, by Australian label JAGGAR, retail for just under $150. Alongside the upcoming color, the classic mule silhouette is an easy (and comfortable) piece worth having on hand this season, as demonstrated by the likes of Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.
