Blame it on Miu Miu, but Mary Janes are basically the shoes of the season. The style is known for its simple closed-toe design and a strap (or more!) that runs across your foot's instep. For some extra background, the name "Mary Jane" came from a character in a Buster Brown comic in the early 1900s. The Brown Shoe Company named a shoe after the ones she wore, and, well, the rest is history. 

While the satin flats from Miu Miu come to mind first, many other designers are going all in on the trend. More brands lending their distinct point of view to the classic include Sandy Liang, Mansur Gavriel, Ganni, Nodaleto, and Prada, to name a couple. Ahead, I've rounded up the 27 best Mary Janes in all different silhouettes, from flats and loafers to lug-sole platforms and high heels, so that you can find your dream shoe for fall 2023. Shop away!

Freelance Fashion Editor

Lauren Adhav is a freelance fashion editor based in Los Angeles. Originally from Orlando, Florida, she always wanted to work at a fashion magazine. After finally getting an internship at Town & Country in 2015, she moved to New York City and continued to get her footing in the industry with stints at Cosmopolitan, W magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Moda Operandi. In 2017, she returned to Cosmo full time, starting off as the beauty and fashion editorial assistant and working her way to fashion editor. She contributed to both the website and print issues, pitching new ideas, forecasting trends, covering red carpet events, and informing the overall coverage and brand voice. After five years in NYC, she moved to the West Coast for the sunshine and the change of pace. As a freelance fashion editor, she still contributes to Cosmo and now Who What Wear. She's always trying to get ahead of the next big trend before it goes mainstream and loves discovering fashion brands with a unique point of view (Chopova Lowena, Sandy Liang, and Bode being some of her current favorites). She also spends an unhealthy amount of time online shopping for the perfect piece, and now that she's in L.A., she's rediscovering her soft spot for malls. On the weekends, you can find her walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir, trying to catch up on her tan at Venice Beach, and probably ordering a Chinese chicken salad at Joan's on Third.
