Versace platforms keep evolving and each new collection brings out another new trend. The iconic gold Medusa buttons and towering platforms take these shoes to another level, literally!

Classic Black Patent Mary Jane shoes heels

If you’re looking for a classic pair with a sturdy heel and double straps these are a great find and they’re on sale.

Coming in hot…pink Mary Jane shoes

These platform Mary Jane heels come in a few colors although the pink is perfect for the Barbiecore trend. I really hope this trend lasts for Fall and Winter because I’m really tempted by the black ones to wear with black tights and cute dresses.

They’re a flattering way to wear the trend if you’re petite like me and kinder on the credit card than the Versace platforms.

If you’re worried about how hard they’ll be to walk in, people rave about how soft the leather is and how comfortable they are in the reviews.

My personal favorites are the Miu Miu bicolor white and black cap toe Mary Jane pumps with their silver chain and pearl button details and the pink Manolo stiletto Mary Jane heels. They’re both such fun ways to wear this trend.

If you’re looking for a style for Spring/Summer think light colors like cream, pretty pastel blue and pink styles. Which look super cute for summer with a lace dress or breezy summer styles. For Fall/Winter chunkier soles and darker colors look great with tights and LBD’s.
