There’s something about Mary Janes. Breaking news? Not exactly, but there is something about the latest quirky-cool incarnations of the shoe style—from Attico’s oversize buckle closures to Miu Miu’s denim straps dotted in pearls—that have this Vogue writer reconsidering the nineties throwback. There are no hard and fast rules on how to wear them—just channel your inner Courtney Love in black and white Campers or Comme des Garçons, or go more gamine à la Alexa Chung in bow-embellished blush color flats. Pair them with pretty much anything from shirtdresses and skinny jeans to long, lean skirts—but maybe leave the plaid miniskirt and knee-highs at home, lest you be mistaken for a schoolgirl.
