French-Knot Pointy Skimmer (Madewell, $98)

I loathe, detest and despise those flimsy little bows on ballet flats.  They’re not a faux pas.  I just can’t stand them.  But a more substantial bow with structure and a modern flare?  I’m all over that.

These pointy-tie skimmers from Madewell come in this delightfully versatile cognac, a black suede and an orange-y/red suede.  They’re the perfect complement to wider-leg pants, esp. denim for casual wear.

If you like the look of a structured bow in a classic shape, this Kate Spade Trophy Flat bears a noticeable resemblance to the much more expensive Ferragamo Varina Flat.  For under-$150, I found this Michael Kors Delphine flat and these Louise et Cie Erica flats.

If you’re after a more modern look, these Loeffler Randall Stella flats have a slim, studded bow. In the under-$50 category, I found these pointed-toe bow flats from Express that are to.die.for.

    Ooh, love them. It’s so hard to find pointy toed flats – thank you!

    I bought these about a month ago and have been wearing them to death. I’m actually wearing them right now! 🙂

    Just a word of caution…I had to return the first pair because they were extremely small. They will stretch as you wear them, but you want to go up at least a half size or even full size.
