The Trends on Wednesday: Pumped-up Chic

It's time to get pumped for the hot shoe trend of autumn 2013!

A quick check-in to share the good news that fashion is still on the trajectory of practical problem-solving with ballet pumps staking their claim in the arsenal of 2013's seasonal staples. This pain-free, transport-friendly accessory - which was traditionally a popular choice among beatniks, including Juliette Gréco and Jean Seberg - has been revived at Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. The designer gave a literal interpretation of the ballet pump when he recently directed two videos with the models dancing. The theme was also carried forward by Jean-Paul Gaultier, with Coco Rocha Irish dancing down the catwalk.

Still can't shake off the association with the flats you feverishly slip on for the tube? Rock the block heels, like Lana Del Rey, Alexa Chung and Zooey Deschanel did last year. Whistles' Nico mary janes aren't a bad place to start, with 1.5" heels. Even Christian "comfort is not my focus" Louboutin is getting in on the act with a matching brogue and backpack set for next spring.

So, if you're rushed off your feet this season, just make sure you're down with the kids and you'll manage it in effortless style!
