Trend spot: Pointed flats for SS13

The pointed toe is making a comeback this summer, in flats as in high heels, and I for one am thoroughly delighted. Pointed flats tend to look more elegant, pulled together and professional than their sometimes cutesy ballerina counterparts, and fans of the angular lovelies should prepare to be spoiled for choice as the shops are going to be full to bursting with them over the next few months.

Now, pointed flats sometimes get a bad rap as being unkind to shorter ladies, to the generous of calf, and to those with larger feet. If you find that they accentuate areas you'd prefer to play down but you still like the look, try ones that have a shorter vamp with a softer, less severely pointed toe.


What do you reckon to them, ladies?
