Trend How-To: Mary Janes

We are loving the re-emergence of Mary Janes here at BWA. Sleek and effortlessly elegant, the Mary Jane in flat or heeled form is a perfect ladylike touch to any outfit. Popping up in collections from designers like Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu, its clear why. A modern take on a classic shoe, this seasons Mary Jane is style in comfort which is hard to fault. Try this look with a pair of girly socks and a summer dress or for masculine cool with cropped pants and a slouchy tee. Check out our top picks, and some celebs rocking the look.
