Mary Janes: Fall 2022’s top trend

Fashion insiders’ votes are in: Mary Janes are Fall 2022’s top trend.

Is there a more iconic, timeless design than a Mary Jane shoe? We can’t think of one. This Fall, the classic style is back in a major way, topping every trend list and spotted on the runways of every designer.

Elizée’s take on the style is true to our brand ethos: we’ve taken the forever wardrobe hero and created a modern twist on the silhouette, with an alluring heel cutout and the ultra-feminine lines of the slim adjustable strap. The unexpectedly seductive shape of this grown-up Mary Jane is set on a perfectly balanced 3.5” heel with a sexy almond toe (featuring just a touch of extra room to ensure all of your toes lay flat.) Like all of our styles, it’s luxuriously handcrafted in Italy by expert artisans, engineered to be comfortable from day to night, and made in buttery-soft Italian nappa leather.


The Frecia

The Frecia comes in three sophisticated neutrals, designed to mix and match with everything in your closet: wear-with-everything Camel, a playful Black/Blush color-blocked combination, and a shimmery, subtly metallic Silver that pairs equally well with evening and bridal looks. 






“I was drawn to the idea of reinventing the Mary Jane for Elizée because it was one of my favorite styles from childhood, and remains an iconic design for women of every age that never goes out of style - it’s both freshly modern, and absolutely timeless. I love playing with the balance of flirty and demure in our designs, and the result in the Frecia is this ultra-wearable, irresistibly feminine pair that’s designed to stay in constant rotation in your wardrobe forever. Perfection.”

Style your Frecias all year round with tights in cooler weather and bare legs in warmer months. The gorgeous almond toe shape and slender heel elongates this season’s wide-leg pant silhouettes, and is the perfect match for the mini skirts seen all over runways this fall. Its versatile form and wearable, fresh hues make it the perfect foundation for your everyday looks, and provides endless opportunities to experiment with French girl-inspired fashion.

Below are some of our favorite ways we’ve been styling the Frecia in 2022.
