I have a few pairs of pointy cap-toe pumps I bought more than a year ago in black and red. I wore with dress pants for business professional look, and wore with designer jeans for more casual attire. Although the materials of pointy pumps and its cap-toe are different (usually in patent leather contrasts with quilted leather), they are in same color and are less noticeable from a distance. Thanks to Marc Jacobs’ “Merry-Go-Round” pointy cap-toe pumps from Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2012 collection, I was surprised how these pumps, when designed in contrast colors, can stand out versus in monotone. The design of “Merry-Go-Round” is so unique and classic. It was featured in many magazines and wore by many celebrities.
Although the “Merry-Go-Round” pointy cap-toe pumps are eye-catching, they are designed for spring and summer (most in pastel colors-white, pink, and baby blue); wouldn’t go well with fall fashion! I am glad that many designers are making their pointy cap-toe pumps for fall in dark colors and various materials, such as patent leather, suede, flannel, and metallic leather. The designers include Biuseppe Zanotti , Donald J Piner, Valentino, Jimmy Choo, and Manolog Blahnik. Manolog Blahnik also offers cap-toe pumps in mary jane, Camparicap, and t-strap/double ankle strap, Mallinspec. My picks among these fabulous cap-toe pumps are Valentino’s Extreme Printed Patent Pumps and Manolog Blahnik’s Camparicap Mary Jane. See below.
Valentino’s Extreme Printed Patent Pumps-sleek and stylish, goes well with pencil skirts and even designer jeans.
Manolog Blahnik’s Camparicap Mary Jane-classic and yet trendy, goes well with dresses and skirts.
