Trend: High-heeled Mary Janes

Have you noticed that Mary-Jane has had a make over? Once confined to school-girls and church-goers, Mary Jane shoes are now adorning the feet of celebrities, starlets and wild child party animals everywhere.

Kate Bosworth was spotted in a metallic pair of sky-high Mary Janes at the Met Gala ball this year, while Diane Kruger, Mischa Barton and the Olsen Twins are also fans. Patent are definitely big, as are metallics. Some top picks:

Clockwise from left: Barbie Mary-Jane pumps by Theory, Manolo Blahnik Open-Toe Mary Jane Pump, Valentino Peep-Toes, DAVIS by Ruthie Davis Screen Mary Jane Pump, Christian Louboutin Patent Mary-Janes, and Studio Pollini Patent Pumps. Shoes available from Shop Bop, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
