Last Dance with Mary Jane
The last time I considered Mary Janes a staple in my closet, I was in 4th grade. Clueless was on a constant loop in my VCR and I envied Cher Horowitz’s wardrobe more specifically, her Mary Janes. One of my best friends had two pairs I was constantly borrowing and clacking down Cross St. School’s hallways. I pretty much lived, breathed and died for those shoes.
Fast forward close to 2 decades later and I find myself drooling over the latest Mary Jane styles; I’m particularly fond of those with bright, color block patterns. Chunky, classic and a great option for transitioning into spring (or for those of us in the North East, still waiting for winter), you can’t go wrong with a great pair of Mary Janes.
Here are some of my favorite pairs broken out by style:
I really hope this trend sticks around for years to come. I’m so in love with everything about it! Sharp, distinct lines, playful colors and tons of options. I wouldn’t mind adding these 3 pairs to my shoe rack.
Madeline Girl Tender Pump, $79.95
Rampage Mariska Pump, $39.95
Vince Camuto ‘Jasper’ Mary Jane Pump, $116.95
Aside from practical reasons, shoes are worn to make a statement! These Mary Janes kick up the flare factor and really bring your feet to life. I’m lusting over the Betsey Johnsons!
Betsey Johnson Poppie Pump, $109.95
Every girl needs ’em. But classic doesn’t have to translate to plain. Here are two options in timeless colors, and textures.
ALDO ‘Flavell’ Pump, $99.95
A League of Their Own
Gucci- enough said. Hey, a girl can dream right?
Gucci Chain Strap Mary Jane Sandal, $1195.00
How are you feeling about the Mary Jane revival? Bring it on or leave it with Cher and Dionne?
