Trend Spotting

There’s a classic look that’s making a chic new comeback- The cap toe!

If you’re a fan of colorblocking the cap toe is a look you should try on for size.  When I think of cap toe styles the Chanel Cap Toe Ballet Flat comes to mind.  But a modern twist on this style is it’s resurgence in pumps.  Cap toe pumps have proven to be a very stylish twist for high heels.  We should thank Louis Vuitton for reintroducing this trend.  Vuitton’s metallic cap toe pumps from Spring 2012 delighted fashionistas around the world, and inspired a sea of similar pumps from the likes of Topshop and Zara.

While many of these gorgeous pumps carry a steep price tag, this trend can also be a bargain and a fun DIY project.

You can make your own cap toe pumps with some paint, painters tape and a pair of pumps (or any style of shoe you choose).  Just put some tape where you’d like your caps to start, spray your paint & voila you have your very own cap toe pumps.  Of course, a little precision is advised in your application, but this is a simple style to achieve.  You can also get the trend without breaking the bank at  We have a bunch of cap toe shoes from the likes of Chanel and Dries Van Noten for both men and women.  Happy Shopping!

Here’s hoping the cap toe is here to stay 🙂
