Mary Jane shoes are a classic and timeless women's shoe style featuring a low-cut design and a strap that fastens over the instep. They became popular as a women's style for flappers in the early 20th century but have since taken on a new life in goth, rockabilly, corpgoth, dark academia, cottagecore and punk rock communities. Nowadays you can find them across all styles in heels, flats, platforms, flatforms and sandals. You can even find Mary Jane creepers thanks to Demonia and Killstar!
How to style Mary Jane shoes
Mary Janes are super versatile and can be styled in many different ways depending on the occasion and your personal taste. They can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion and can be paired with a variety of different outfits to create a range of looks. For a casual and relaxed look, try wearing Mary Jane shoes with a pair of skinny jeans and a casual t-shirt. For a more professional or corporate goth look, pair Mary Janes with a knee-length skirt and blouse. To create a more feminine cottagecore look, wear Mary Janes shoes with a flowy dress. Pair Mary Jane shoes with your favourite thigh high socks or stockings to create a pastel goth or Lolita look. Accessorise with statement jewellery, corset or a belt to add some extra flair to your outfit. When styling Mary Jane shoes, the key is to have fun and be confident in your choices! Whether dressed up or down, these shoes are a timeless and classic choice that can add a touch of vintage charm to any outfit.
