It's sad but true - summer is nearing it's end. But cheer up, there's a few weeks left and when the cooler seasons finally do roll around, we've got a whole new set of styles and trends to try! One such trend that transitions perfectly from sunny days to breezy afternoons is the pointed toe flat. Pointy flats work well with a flirty, flared skirt and loose blouse and then look equally cute when paired with skinny jeans and an over-sized sweater. Plus, the sharp tip elongates the leg and makes the overall look seem sleeker and much more chic that it's rounded-toe counter parts. High end designer shoe brands are loving this new trend, but we're loving the fact that you can find a cute pair for $50 or less! Click on the slideshow and check out our choices for cutest pointed toe flats!
