One Shoe, Five Ways: How To Wear Spring’s Pointy Flats

As heels get higher and higher, the need for sensible flats hasn’t fizzled. Whether you’re at the office or out on the town, the season’s freshest silhouette — the pointy flat — can be styled a variety of ways to fit your style. The best part? The comfort.

Below, see five ways to style spring’s best pointy flats.

To The Office
While you may want to bust out your best power heel for an important meeting, a chic flat is equally as impactful. Opt for a pop of color such as Paul Andrew’s royal blue suede style. It can be easily paired with a suit and your polished basics.

On The Town
If you’re planning on barhopping, you’ll want a shoe that you can walk — and dance — in. There’s nothing worse than a teetering walk. Zara’s metallic lace-up pointy style is three major trends in one, and it will instantly add some visual interest to your outfit.

To An Outdoor Show
The bohemian look never goes out of style. If you’re a fan of the trend, Tabitha Simmons’ floral embroidered style is a more ladylike take — and can be paired with your fave 1970s-style accessories. Wear with flared denim and a retro tee.

To A Gala
A flat for evening? You bet. Look for pointy flats with crystal embellishment, such as this ankle-strap Rochas style. It’s just as refined as a stiletto. Finish the look with high impact via glitzy jewelry, a lace dress and vibrant clutch for color.

To The Park
Off-duty dressing doesn’t have to mean sneakers. If you’re running errands or going for a Sunday stroll, try Monse’s striped pom-pom flat, which instantly adds personality to a no-fuss shirtdress. Pastel jewelry keeps the outfit light.
