Sarah Jessica Parker didn't invent the babydoll shoe trend, but she did wear it on repeat for day-to-day activities at a time when most other celebrities were still in pandemic-induced sneakers. She walked in sparkly platform Mary Jane heels so we could run... to our closets and bring our going-out shoes out from hibernation. And just like us, Jennifer Lawrence appears to have also dipped her toes back into real shoes.

While at a Don't Look Up screening in Los Angeles, she wore a $2,650 The Row cashmere midi dress with a pair of $188 Doen Mary Jane slippers. Clearly, a babydoll shoe works just as well for formal events as it does for running errands in New York City — they're the perfect mix of sophistication and ease.

Babydoll shoes, a.k.a. Mary Janes, are also an ideal year-round style. For the winter, all you have to do is add socks (bonus points if they have frilly trim). Plus, they're a shoe that you can easily buy for under $200: Everlane makes a Mary Jane flat that looks nearly identical to Lawrence's for $115, and Nordstrom has a handful of affordable Mary Janes, from a $100 style by Trotter to a comfortable pair by Clarks for $120.

Mary Janes are also a popular high-end style, and there are so many good luxury options on the market right now. Nodaleto makes Instagram's favorite platform version for $850, By Far killed two trends with one stone by making its $474 take with a square toe, and supermodels keep wearing Miu Miu Mary Janes to every other red carpet event. There's also the Burberry Aldwych, a Mary Jane every influencer seems to own in bulk. No matter which one you choose, you really can't go wrong.

If you need a break from sneakers (or from Ugg boots), you know exactly what to do.
