The school girl staple getting a style star makeover this fall

Real talk pretty birds, ever since Kaia Gerber walked out in a pair of these baby doll beauties during Paris Fashion Week, I must admit, Mary Janes have been on my mind. Specifically, all the ways designers seem to be stepping up their style game with this traditionally juvenile or frumpy footwear.
But outdated no longer, this old fashion style has gone from drab to fab. And with pieces like Christian Louboutin’s fringed footwear on the market, which manages to combine not only two but three of our favorite trends of the season into one gorgeous package with its Mary Jane shape, velvet fabrication, and statement heel. It is on our list for shoe MVP of the season. But if that shoe doesn’t tickle your fancy we suggest Prada or Gucci’s truly OTT creations that are the literal definition EXTRA in all the right ways.
Still not sold? Well, the key to rocking this tricky trend so that you make sure that you’re looking less schoolyard granny and more street style ready is to really focus on the details. Find shoes that have interesting embellishments, fabrications, or shapes and also check out our complete ATPB approved round up of the trend below.
