This fall there’s a bevy of fun and wearable new trends, with cap-toe flats being right at the top of the list. Cap-toe flats are a must-have for a number of reasons; they’re comfortable, they can be casual or dressy, and they add a pop of color or texture to any outfit. Below are my top ten picks for cap toe flats:
1. Metal Toecap Snake Flats
If you’re in the mood for metallics, but something slightly less dangerous than a spiked toe, opt for the casually classy Oasis Metal Toecap Snake Ballet Flats ($63) by Asos
. They’re a subtle beige snake print with mirrored gold cap-toe and tiny heel; they’re the perfect flats for job interviews and more professional settings, but they also dress up a pair of jeans perfectly.
2. Spike Toe Velvet Flats
One word sums up the Spike Toe Velvet Flats from Charlotte Russe
($30): fierce! These flats come in black or nude with a silver metallic cap toe, which is adorned with studs and spikes. This shoe will easily add interest to a pair of black or denim skinny jeans, and for a limited time all shoes at Charlotte Russe are BOGO!
3. Perfect Canvas FlatsAnn Taylor’s
Perfect Canvas Flats ($69) are indeed the perfect cap-toe flats for everyday wear. Made out of beige canvas, these flats have a black patent cap, making them neutral enough to wear with just about anything, and casual enough to slip on to run to the store or other after school activities.
4. Solare Flats
The Nine West Women's Solare Flats ($89) from Endless.com
come in grey, gold and black leather, with a silver or gold cap toe. But here’s the fun part -- the cap toe is also covered in different sized rhinestones, which give it a dreamy, ethereal look. These flats also have a small heel, slightly under 1”, to give you just a bit of a lift.
5. Kim Capped-Toe Flats
The ME TOO Kim Capped-Toe Flats ($95) from LordandTaylor.com
are sleek, to say the least! These leather
flats come in gun metal grey with a mirrored silver cap-toe. Grey and silver flats of any kind are a perfect wardrobe addition because they match just about anything black will match.
If a pair of comfortable, cushy ballet flats are more your speed, try on the Yosi Samra Two Tone Cap Toe Ballet Flats from ShopBop.com ($66). These black leather flats have a camel colored cap that makes for a nice contrast, while the elastic around the foot keeps them perfectly in place all day. Made of real leather. They also come in brown
with a black patent snake skin cap, and black
with a silver snake skin cap.
The Vince Camuto Flats Ernest Cap Toe Ballet Flats from Bloomingdale's ($52.95) bring even more patent leather to the mix! These come in nude patent leather with a metallic leather cap toe, which can add a sweet touch to any look, or an all over metallic black with gun metal cap for something a bit more dressy.
8. Patent Leather Cap Toe FlatThe Patent Leather Cap Toe Flat from WetSeal.com are an absolute steal at only $16.50 a pair! These simple and classic black and white flats will look great with any solid colored dresses or your favorite pair of skinny jeans.
Tired of ballet and basic style flats
? Have no fear, loafers are here! The folks over at the amazing shoe line Dolce Vita are responsible for the Luna Metal Toe-Cap Loafer, available at Urban Outfitters ($79), a hip and unique pair of royal blue suede loafers with a pointy gold cap toe.
The Deena & Ozzy Stud Toe-Cap Skimmer from Urban Outfitters is a different type of cap toe flat. The cap on this particular shoe is the same color as the rest of the shoe -- an gorgeous shade of coral -- and is accented with multiple gold studs
. It also has an ankle strap
, which makes it stand out even more.
