Trend Alert! Mary Janes Have A Comeback

The Mary Jane Renaissance is upon us! The once twee shoe worn with pant-suits and pleated skirts is made a serious comeback. Sleek and full of swank, Mary Janes are much more sophisticated this time around, and designers like Marc Jacobs showed just how much fun a sensible shoe could be. Whether high, low, with a chunky heel or propped on a stiletto, Mary Janes offer a dose of chicness without sacrificing too much comfort. We love the idea of wearing them with thin socks and a dress, or paired with cropped pants and a casual T-shirt. However you dress them up or down, make Mary Janes your main thing again!
