This spring and summer, one of the biggest (and best) runway trends could be your secret weapon to office stardom, your next date, or any other situation in which you want to present yourself with class. For a handful of designers, sex appeal was on the back burner, and represented in a garment's detail and cut. It was hinted at playfully rather than overtly put on display. From the recent past in which we saw the platform heel reach outlandish heights, the inevitable backlash has now given us pointed flats, chunky short heels and a wardrobe to match subtler sensibilities. Check out some of our favorite looks from some of our favorite designers who embraced this trend beautifully.
