We've been seeing this pointed look crop up on fashionable fixtures at New York Fashion Week, then in London, and now on the cobblestoned streets of Milan. Yes, it's safe to say that classic silhouettes and slick pumps are getting a fresh update for Spring 2012, by way of colorful patterns, structured shape, and sky-high heights. Aside from its ladylike pointy-toe effect, you can evoke a sportier vibe with a track-inspired pant, or a girlier feel with sheer ankle socks, or even a fierce edge with ultra-tailored separates. It's all in the way you style it against your own wardrobe that makes these pumps a serious statement piece.
