Fall in Love With… Pointed Pumps

Fall in Love With… Pointed Pumps

The infamous Iris Apfel once said, “If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes, you can get away with anything.” Let’s just cut to the chase and accept that this lady had a very good point. And speaking of good points, I’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with the pointed toe pump trend. It’s funny though because a few years ago I would have cringed at the thought of wearing pointy heels. I grew up in an era where platform, rounded and peep-toed heels reigned supreme so for me it’s very refreshing to find a new shoe silhouette for the spring.

I personally steer clear of super-pointed toe heels. Instead, I try to find ones that have a more almond shape since I think they are more flattering. Nevertheless, you should definitely try a variety of different points and heel heights to see what works best for you.

What do you think about the pointed toe trend? Are you going to give it a try?

    I absolutely love a good pair of pointed-toe pumps! They’re a must have! :)


  • marry kelly

    It will be the best for me..What how one can do it now..Can you keep it up there??


  • Anna Martin

    I’ve actually prefered pointed toe heels for quite sometime! I read they help elongate the legs, and because I’m a petite girl, I’ll take it! :)

  • Rachelle

    I have always loved them i grew up seeing my mother wearing them. And I think the look more delicate and feminine. This Kate Spade pair is gorgeous.


  • Rachel Trampel

    LOVE the pointy pumps. I think there is something so instantly chic about them, paired with anything! I am in love with this pair!


  • Izzey

    Yes… Finally pointy toe are back. I wore a pair to girls night out 2 weeks ago. I will definitely be joining in this trend for spring. I wasn’t sure about wearing them because I was like “”are these out of style?”” I came to me sense and said to myself doesn’t matter as long as I like them. So I was happy to see this post.

  • Heather Henderson

    I’ve never been able to get into the pointy toe shoe trend. I think it’s because I have bigger feet and I don’t want to make them look any bigger than they actually are haha, but I think they look great on other people!


  • Cassidy Short

    I LOVE pointed toe pumps! They always look so chic, whether you wear them with a dress or skinny jeans. :)



  • Kelby Peachey

    I can’t wear pump shoes thanks to my arthritis, but I’m finding I like pointed toes on flats. It gives the illusion of the pump. :)


  • Ashley Rizzardo

    I tend to avoid super point toes as well. They just don’t look very comfortable. But some of them look really nice :)


  • Camille

    I’m not a fan of pointy shoes. Too 80s for me!


  • Diamenrose

    The shoes are soo romantic! You should post a `whole picture of you and the shoes with a elegant dress :)

  • Marie Fournier

    I love the shoes on the picture, they are so cute!

  • sarah lawrence

    I have always been a big fan of pointed toe shoes!!!


  • megan magers

    these are so perfect, i think the floral addition to the shoe helps soften the pointed toe. i would definitely wear these!!

  • Amanda Kretchmer

    Love your heels. I’ve alwaysh had atleast two pairs of pointy toed shoes in my wardrobe at any given time. I usually tend to wear round toed shoes, but there is something very alluring about the point.

  • My Style Diary

    Never thought I would say this, but I actually quite like this trend! I’m excited to try on a pair and maybe style them with some edgy pieces. :)


  • Shoegal Out In The World

    I love pointy heels & flats… I think that they can upgrade any outfit… I will definitely invest in some more pieces…

    Love it Lauren!! Love this site. :) I really wish i could wear heels, my ankles have had their fair share of injuries making it scary to wear heels…what shoes to you suggest with a lower heel.

  • Monica_in_Heels

    I love all heels!!! I especially like pointed heels with dress pants.


  • Lauren Larsen

    I just got a pair!!! Such a sucker for shoes :)

  • Ashley

    I have a pair of super pointy heels and I have never actually worn them! The almond toe you suggest sounds much better for me :) http://dreamliveandrepeat.blogspot.com/

  • Leanne

    Those are so stunning!!! I’ve seen a couple pairs similar to those in various stores.

    When I was 18 super pointy heels were so in fashion and I loved them. Now I also cringe at super pointy! 10 years later I prefer a rounder point, like almond toe. Love the shoes Lauren xo

  • marry kelly

    I love your all posts lauren..

    It can lead to keep myself up to date.


  • Franci Gire

    Honestly, You can do no wrong with Kate Spade pumps! 😉


  • Missy

    I have a few really pointy heels, and I enjoy wearing those with a boot cut jean because they don’t look awkward with a looser fit.

  • Nikki

    This is great to hear, I own lots of pointed toe heals because I think they look better on my foot and make my small feet more proportionate to my taller body. I can shop my closet and spare my bank account :)


  • Raven Locks

    Yes! I love pointed toe pumps. Those Kate Spade ones you’re wearing are adorable. They’re ladylike and have the perfect touch of vintage :)



  • Melissa mould

    Loving pointed boots – my pointed leopard print ankle boots are my latest obsession. They’re on my style blog today too http://www.mediamarmalade.com/#

  • Kylie Miller

    I’m obsessed with heels. Pointer pumps are super cute. Check out my blog: http://thechicstreetblog.blogspot.com/

  • Kelly Burt

    I personally love the pointed toe pump as well as the rounded toe pumps. The rounded heels have been in style the last couple years and I remeber about 8 and 9 years ago the pointed toe pumps were all that was in style. I’m glad to see that they are back. It’s a refreshing change but also good that the rounded toe pumps are still in. I have a pair of black rounded toes and I’m absolutely in love with them!

  • Ashley

    I am with you on this trend! The almond shape is more my style too! http://dreamliveandrepeat.blogspot.com/
