Mary Jane Shoe Trend!



Spotted on runways and street style stars alike, the classic Mary Jane is ready to become cooler and edgier than ever this spring. With a variety of patent leather, metallic, suede, velvet, and embellishment options to choose from, you'll have no trouble finding just the right style for your taste. 

It’s long been around - and long been adored - but this shoe style has moved in a new (and very cool) direction, and is looking better than ever as a result.  So, what exactly qualifies as a Mary Jane? It has to feature one strap (if not more), and always, always have a closed toe.

Today Mary Janes can have pointy or rounded toes; heels, platforms, or flats; and all of them can come in a variety of different colours. Because there are so many different types of Mary Janes to choose from, they work with just about any style, no matter how casual or dressy it needs to be.  Wear your Mary's with your favourite dress, with skinny leg jeans, or with a pencil skirt, and come the cooler months, if you have a Mary Jane in a dark colour, you can absolutely wear them over both sheer and opaque tights.  

Flat Mary Janes are more childlike in nature, but that doesn't mean the style should be avoided. When worn with a sophisticated outfit, like a pair a cropped pants and a fitted blazer, flat Mary Janes can make you look polished and put together.

Heeled version of Mary Janes, like the ones made my prominent shoe designers, feature pointed toes, strap details and luxurious materials that make the shoes look more adult. In some Mary Jane heels the strap is positioned closer to the ankle for an even more feminine effect, or there are multiple straps that give off an edgy vibe.
