I'm Calling It: This Fresh Flat-Shoe Trend Is Going to Be Everywhere This Spring

What a time it's been for flat shoes. Though there was a period not long ago when flats were reserved for summer days or dashing around, in recent months we've seen these practical styles become the chicest options around. Whilst rounded-toe ballet flats and almond-shaped Mary Janes enjoyed a fashion renaissance last season, there's a lesser-styled flat on the up right now.

Everywhere I look, fashion people are selecting pointed-toe flat shoes to finesse their new-season outfits. With an elegant finish, pointed-toe flats add the familiar sophistication of a sleek high heel without the precariousness and discomfort.

Working with everything from your everyday jeans to a wool pencil skirt, pointed-toe flats add structure to any silhouette. A favourite of those who want to enjoy the practicalities of a flat whilst retaining the polish of a slingback, this new-season shoe trend is taking more converts by the minute.
