Trend Watch: Cap-Toe Heels

by on August 7, 2012

Quite possibly my current favorite trend in women’s footwear is the cap-toe shoe. They can take your outfit from casual to chic in the click of a heel.

Louis Vuitton brought the cap-toe heel back into the fashion forefront with their Fall/Winter 2012 collection, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a simple look that instantly adds a level of ladylike sophistication to an outfit. Now more accessible retailers – like Nasty Gal, Topshop, Zara and Steve Madden – offer cap-toe styles for all of the budget fashionistas out there, making it easier to purchase several in different colors rather than blowing all that money on one pair!


Steve Madden, Zara, Christian Louboutin, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton’s take on the Cap-Toe Heel

I have a pair from Topshop in a nude color with a rose-gold cap-toe, and I absolutely love them. They go with pretty much everything I wear, instantly giving a chic twist to whatever I may have on. The heel is pretty low (maybe 3″) so I can wear them all day comfortably – and it doesn’t hurt that I get tons of compliments on them. Those Louis Vuitton green leopard print heels are SO gorgeous; in the meantime, I really want to get my hands on those Zara black, metal-heeled booties.

I definitely recommend this shoe to everyone! What do you think of the cap-toe shoe trend?
