Platform Mary Jane shoes for women are back in fashion in a big way for 2023 from the runways to the streets. They became an It-girl staple back in style a couple of years ago but the trend shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. Pretty much all styles are in from ballet flats to towering platforms and add a super cute, youthful and feminine aesthetic to all of your outfits. Olivia Rodrigo, Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa have all be spotted wearing Mary Jane platform heels with everything from ladylike tweed and lace skirt sets to sexy dresses. If you haven’t jumped on this trend yet, these are the some of the hottest Mary Jane platform heels we’ve come across this season.

What are platform Mary Jane shoes

Mary Jane platform heels are traditionally any shoe style with a closed toe with one or more straps across the top. However, the term’s used more loosely as the trends evolved and also includes open toe shoes and mules.

Are Mary Jane platform shoes in fashion for 2023

Yes they’re in style in a major way. It’s easy to see why, as they look so good with the nineties fashion trending now and tend to be more stable and comfortable than stiletto heels. If you’re looking for a chunkier heel or new platforms for Summer consider a platform.

The beauty of them is how versatile they are. They also tend to look more modern than the classic iterations. Whether you want to go for a more ladylike look and style them with a modern cropped tweed coord set or more casual look with a crop top and jeans. I’m personally all over this trend as the higher the heel the better.

For the most on trend look go for a pointed toe or round toe top strap platform heel in pretty much any color.

Best platform Mary Jane shoes under $150

There’s no need to spend a fortune on this shoe trend unless there’s a designer pair you’ve absolutely fallen in love with. ASOS, Forever 21, Aldo and Steve Madden all have on trend styles for under $60. I’m loving the baby blue patent pair.

An ankle or top strap gives more support than a lot of other platform shoes do too. They’re one of those comfortable and sturdy heels that are made for wearing all day and night and can be dressed up or down. The pink satin pair I’m wearing are under $50 on Amazon and come in 7 colors. They run big though, so I sized down a full size.

If you’re torn between saving or splurging on designer platform Mary Jane shoes these are some of the hottest styles worth the splurge. You might not get more than a couple of seasons wear from them but some things are too good to put logic too when you love them.

You know I’m a Versace girl and Versace platforms keep evolving with each new collection. The iconic gold Medusa buttons give a glam touch and the towering platforms are for my people who love an ultra high heel. However, Valentino Garavani has some stunning platform Mary Jane mules out this season in lots of different colors that are so on point trend wise. If you’re wanting to splurge, those are my top pick this season.

The higher the heel the closer to God!

What color platform Mary Jane shoes should I get

Honestly, it doesn’t really matter what color platform Mary Jane heels you get. From neutrals to trending colors like pink, blue, green and red. Obviously pink is perfect for the Barbiecore trend but white is also super cute for Summer and you can’t go wrong with black or red for Fall/Winter.
