However, Styleite questioned her sartorial decision, saying pointy toe flats make everyone look "dowdy."
As someone who wears pointy toe flats when heels aren't cutting it comfort-wise (or heels make me just a teensy bit too tall for the fiance's comfort), I disagree. I wouldn't be too concerned about look dowdy. In fact, I'd be most concerned about looking witchy!
Most girls go-to flat is a round-toe ballet flat, often with a bit of stretch in the heel, like a Tory Burch Reva or Matt Bernson Waverly. But sometimes, these ballet flats can make a calf look extra shapely or make an otherwise dressy outfit look too casual.
So this is where a pointy-toe flat enters the picture. It's less Saturday shopping and more Tuesday night happy hour hopping. It's a little retro and a little rock.
Worried about the witch effect? Stay away from anything TOO pointy. Anything that extends much further than 1-1.5 inches past your toes is too far.
