Known for the buckle-strap closure midway down the shoe, Mary Janes are super cute, but can be super tricky to style without looking too juvenile. However, don’t stress because I have you covered! Consider these tips when wearing your new MJ heels:
- For work, balance out the shoe’s “school girl” feel with a sophisticated, yet age appropriate look. Playing off the retro vibe of the shoe, pair them with a wide leg trouser and crisp button up for nice contrast of playfulness and clean lines.
- Try them with a well-tailored dress. Again, choose a dress with clean lines and avoid anything that is too girly or frilly. Stick to solid shade and add some pops of color with accessories like a pretty crossbody bag or a lightweight scarf. You can make dress up this look even more by adding a long, pretty fringed necklace and gold cuff. It’s sure to make your outfit at any special occasion, such as a night out or a wedding.
- For the weekend, show them off by wearing some slim-fitted cropped boyfriend jeans, a basic tee and a well-fitted blazer. The theme here is a sophisticated, yet casual look.
I hope these tips help you with your chic and fun new shoes. As you see, you can actually get a ton of use out of them!
