There is nothing sexier or more "rock'n'roll" than a long pointy shoe with a killer heel. Pointed pumps have been a statement in fashion particularly in the 60's when Audrey Hepburn and Jaquelin Kennedy were graciously making them a trend.
Talking about the pointed high stilettos UK shoe designer Terry DeHavilland has said, "people say they're bad for the feet but they're good for the mind. What's more important?"
Some of the great advantages of stilettos are summarized on the highly popular Wikipedia :"Stilettos, like all similar high-heeled shoes, give the optical illusion of a longer, slimmer leg, a smaller foot, and overall greater height. They alter the wearer's posture and gait, flexing the calf muscles and making the bust and buttocks more prominent. "
Pointed shoes allow you to give the illusion of a more proportional silhouette, bring the feeling of a very elaborated outfit to anything you wear from a casual pair of jeans and a T-shirt for a Sunday afternoon tea with the girls or with a masculine trousers suit on a big client day at work.
They can transform any ensemble in a very stylish and sexy outfit. Wear them with capri trousers, your favorite silk blouse and a military short jacket and feel you're the most powerful and sexy woman on the planet.
Or put on a pencil leather skirt with a black and white strappy vest and your special white high stilettos from L.K.Bennett or Prada and run to a show at Somerset House for London Fashion Week. It's that simple
