Ankle boots of the pointed toe kind are a current favorite. Find out why the boot trend is stealing the spotlight.
I love oxfords with their rounded toe but lately, I’m noticing that I’m inclined to hover at the boot corner specifically eyeballing the ones with a pointed toe – in fact I have a pair of cut-out boots in the style, I wear on cooler rainy days as the coverage from the boots isn’t suited for the default Malaysian weather when much is spent out and about in the sun or at a street-style food stall where a lot of pigging out is happening.
As I look at the bootie trend worn by the style bloggers I’m following, it’s clear that I am intensely attracted to the pointy toe ankle boot variety and in the words of an Internet meme: I can’t even. I love this style of boots so much, I can’t even. I want them all and wish it rained more so the temps go drastically down just so I can stick my square feet into the delightful boots!
Alas, the weather’s here been pretty lovely that boots aren’t a requirement at all. How I wish there is an existence of a tropical summer pointy boots made of breathable fabric of some sort so I can wear them anytime I want to without worrying that my feet is drowning in their sweet juices.
So what about the pointed toe in particular that appeals, you wonder?
When people talk of silhouette, a major part of it is focused on the clothing; how boxy the blouse is or that the waist is accentuated even more when one is clad is a skater skirt thanks to the flared out shape of the skirt. Our eyes are trained to zone in on the outfit area while the footwear gets into focus a minute later. The ankle boots with a narrow toe impacts the silhouette too by adding a sophisticated punch that is immediately noticeable whether or not they are in a low chunky heel, flat or in a tall and thin heel that can double as a weapon in time of need.
To see what I mean, just zoom in on how the pointed toe boots visually smarten up quite a diverse style of outfits down below.

Random fact about me: I’m a proud picky-eater – This habit is developed after finding out that I’m prone to bloating. My mindset is simple: Keep the gut happy with a selective well-balanced diet and you’ll feel many times better! As much as I love to stuff my face with food, being a bit conscious whilst stuffing the face has really turned my life around.
