From the runway to the city streets, you’re about to see this retro, ladylike shoe style anywhere and everywhere.
Mary Janes have already made the switch from girly girl to cool girl staple. On the fall 2022 runways, most notably at Prada, Mary Jane heels were front and center. The sweet strap—synonymous with the ladylike silhouette—can be found on Prada’s Modellerie pumps, but what makes them especially eye-catching are their dramatic block heel and pointed toe.
Coming in an array of colors from pastel green and pink to bold black, gold, and gray, this statement shoe is not alone in its retro-futuristic style. Others from The Row, Mango, and Stella McCartney are equally noteworthy. Retro fashion—retro-to-wear if you will—was a heaving hitting fall trend that encompassed midi skirts, nipped waists, polka dots, and now must-have Mary Jane heels. Dainty ankle straps seen on pumps from Mugler x Jimmy Choo, Amina Muaddi, and The Attico will not only elongate your legs, but also add dimension to any outfit. With the holiday season quickly approaching, why not go for crystal embellished kitten heels from Miu Miu and Khaite. When paired with an equally as festive party dress, we’d call that sartorial success. Even better, you could wear Mary Jane heels from Aeyde or Co with a pair of baggy jeans and a chunky knit for an elevated everyday look.
This fall and winter, slip into something a bit more glamorous than your typical ballet flats. Below, find 22 pairs of Mary Jane heels that were stylish then and of course, now.
