If you’re looking to take a fashionable step into spring, let your shoes lead the way.

Sleek, sophisticated and ladylike, the pointy-toe shoe is coming back strong, pushing several seasons’ worth of chunky platforms toward the back of the closet. The narrowed point, part of the retro-feminine trend drawing on the 1960s, has trickled down from the designer world to the mainstream market, said Gregg Andrews, fashion creative director at Nordstrom, and will be a silhouette to wear to look well-dressed and on-trend for spring.

The classic, versatile style is enjoying an updated return to the spotlight in a burst of colors and with decorations such as bows and studs.
