Five of the best... Mary Janes

My favourite shoe of all time has got to be the Mary Jane. These days it comes in all sorts of guises but it's typified by that one strap that goes over your foot. What sets this shoe apart is it's sheer versatility, wear it with suit to work, wear it with jeans, where it with a mini-dress, it just makes every outfit look good.

I think this Intruige shoe by Shellys,£60, typifies the quintessential Mary Jane. Basic black, round toe, strap, but it's the large buckle that sells this shoe. Such a simple touch that adds so much character.

On the other side of the spectrum is this funky-as-you-like Bronx Kiyo at Schuh, £59.99 . These are Mary Janes with attitude. Look at that clever heel and ruched-effect, overlasted peep toe.

I really like this Stella wedge from Additions Direct, £20, mainly because of that leopard print wedge detail. I know that zebra is the new leopard but one more purchase can't hurt, surely.

This Poppins Mary Jane from Office, £49.99, has got to be my favourite, not just because it's red but because of the mock snakeskin detail and that lovely little waisted heel. It is just so 20s.

If you're going for comfort and style, you could do a lot worse than this silver flat from Miss Selfridge, £25. With it's metallic looks, it's totally on trend and perfect for a mad weekend shopping spree.
