Style Trend: Pointy Flats

One of the surprise hits of the summer has been my silver pointy toe flats from Next and I have definitely eschewed ballet pumps in favour of them this year. Sleek, chic and surprisingly comfortable, pointed flats look fantastic when paired with both pencil and midi skirts or dresses, flowy maxi's, tapered trousers or skinny jeans. And the good thing is that if you buy the right pair now in the sale, you could wear them well into the autumn.

Here are some of my favourites:

Starting with my silver ones from Next - I have found that they dress up even the most basic summer outfit:

Next Point Slingbacks £26


Next also has the perfect nude pair:

D'Orsay Point Shoes £28


And this monochrome version which are very on trend:

Two Part Pointed Shoes £22


This classic black pair from Boden look super sleek and are a good buy for the coming months:

Boden Pointed Slingbacks £34.50 from £69


I also love this cute spotty pair of pointy slingbacks in the sale at Boden:

Boden Pointed Slingbacks £55.20 from £69


I would love some leopard print flats - this pair at ASOS are in the sale:

London Rebel Tandy Pointed Flats £20 from £30


Looking ahead to autumn, I love this pair of leopard print pointy flats for work or to dress up a pair of black skinny jeans:

Dune Leopard Metal Trim Pointed Toe Dressy Flat £69


And my favourite of all the new season pointy flats is this elegant shimmery pair from Russell & Bromley - they would look just as pretty with jeans as they would with a suit for work:

Russell & Bromley Asymmetric Flat £145


And finishing with a photo from this weekend - just about to leave to go to a 50th birthday party in Hampshire - this was my outfit to travel in, not the party outfit!

Has anyone else discovered a new love of pointy flat shoes this summer?

  5. Oh yes I am a fan, I got the boden silver ones, I have a black pair on my wish list for A/W I think I feel a tad more dressy in them than a ballet shoes. X

  6. I think they're lovely, although I haven't got a pair yet. I don't really like flats on me .. I think I'm too small, so I like a heel, however low. I did however, get a fab pair of Michael Kors leopard print pointed court shoes today in TK Maxx, which I love!

  7. LOVE this selection. I'm so tempted by the Boden ones now they're in the sale but I'm concerned about how comfy they will be on my wide feet. But seeing as I'm filling online baskets galore here, why not fill another one?! Hope you're well my lovely - we will get that phone call I promise. Just give me a week or so to get back on my feet again, Avril xx

  8. Bought the next silver ones like your s and they chewed my feet up just in the house! Not great for broad feet with bunions from student waitressing! I so love how they look but they went back :-( Hx

  9. I love pointy flats, but still tend to feel more comfortable in ballet pump styles. Your silver ones are amazing though, am sorely tempted to steal your style.

  10. I never think that pointy shoes suit me but I'm seriously tempted by the leopard print ones reduced to £20. May have to click buy... Lynne xx

  11. I was sorely tempted by a black patent pair I saw in the sales but didn't purchase. Believe me that is a major departure from typical behaviour. So I may have to revisit my decision making that day and see whether said pair of pointy flats are still available.
