Are 'school' shoes stylish? | The Sun

YOU might have bought them from Start-Rite the first time around, but clumpy brogues, stack heels and Mary-Jane school shoes are back in vogue.

Except this time around you don't have to have a row with your mum about whether you are going to actually wear them!

Here’s how the fashionteam will be styling theirs this autumn.

Tracey Lea Sayer, 52, Fashion Director

School is a very distant memory for me now, but as a child of the '70s, I have always loved a stack-heeled ugly shoe! 

I have gone a bit Harry Styles and teamed these two-toned Gucci-inspired M&S snaffle-front heels with a cool masculine suit and a flouncy frilly blouse. 

I love the juxtaposition of tough masculine tailoring with a feminine blouse and retro shoes.

This look is great for work, but I would also wear it out to a fancy lunch with friends.

Emily Regan, 24, Fashion Assistant

These chunky loafers are a great alternative for anyone who doesn't want to wear heels on a daily basis, just like me.

This black pair with gold buckle detail from H&M are surprisingly versatile and are under £40 – win! 

I’ve let the shoes do the talking by pairing them with a casual outfit, which will work whether I'm doing some leisurely shopping at the weekend, going to a midday brunch or even attending a meeting in the office.

Nana Acheampong, 36, Celebrity and Shopping Editor

Clumpy 'ugly' style school shoes are not me at all!

So I have added a touch of glam to make these block-heeled Mary-Janes work for me.

These metallic shoes still bring the party vibes and don’t make me feel like I am back in Year 6.

I have added a bright-red three-piece suit and a matching silver bag for extra out-there style points.

Clemmie Fieldsend, 32 Fashion Editor

I like to keep things quite minimal and classic so have gone for a prim and proper patent Mary-Jane for my outfit.

I love these & Other Stories ones, which are comfy as well as cute!

A pussy-bow blouse always ties a look together.

Team with a camel coat for a classic look.

Just add scraped-back hair, a flick of black eyeliner and a black handbag. I feel totally put-together and ready for anything the day can throw at me!
