Looking for fresh ways to wear Mary Janes? With a chic square toe and comfortable, slim strap, the versatility of our newest silhouette invites effortless styling.

We reached out to some of our favorite style experts to show you how our iconic Mary Jane flats can be dressed up or down and take you from the office to all around town.



Sarah (@sarahhsol) keeps it simple to let the square toe ballet flats take center stage. 

“Pairing this style with neutrals and a cuffed pant leg or higher hem really lets the iconic silhouette shine. Add a chic crossbody bag and that’s all it takes to be effortlessly office-ready.”

The Mary Jane is a perfect shoe for the fall weather in L.A. They pair so easily with a dress for a stylish day look. Just add a layer like a sweater or vest for cooler evenings.”
