No longer associated with bridesmaids and your grandmother, the pointed-toe slingback is making a serious comeback. Seen on the soles of well-heeled style mavens like the Olsens, Emmanuelle Alt and Vanessa Traina, they will be a surefire hit when the snow finally takes a hike. Stock up on a kitten-heeled version for work, or a playful, embellished pair for a night on the town. Scroll through to shop the best of the bunch and see how we’re styling them.
