Every girl needs a few pairs of fancy go-to flip flops in her closet this summer. When planning for a day at the beach, leave your embellished or jeweled strappy sandals at home and opt instead for a pair of flip flops. Why? Because, flip-flops are hands down the easiest slip-on, slip-off option and will save you from the trouble of having to deal with buckles and straps on the sand. Click here to see more celebrities wearing flip flops this spring/summer 2013.
Don’t worry, flip flops have come a long way since plain cheapo looking rubber ones! Now you have access to rubber flip flops in so many pretty colors, prints, and heights. Whitney Port shows her love for the rubber sandal while sporting a pair of zigzag patterned iPANEMA flip flops on the beach of Miami whilst vacationing for her friend’s bachelorette party. Tory Burch also makes a wide variety of fun patterned and printed rubber flip flops. Her colorful flip flops are definitely beach-friendly and include her signature double “T” medallion on the strap. Love that!
Havaianas are known for having the widest selection of rubber flip flops to choose from. They have done so many variations of the sandal and we are loving their “Flash Sweet Strappy” flip flop this summer. The braided strap adds a more contemporary look to their standard flip flop. If you are used to wearing heels and can’t be without your extra height, Marc by Marc Jacobs offers a great wedge flip flop. It features bright stripes and a gold enamel logo medallion on the strap. While wedge flip flops can easily look cheesy, we think that these are the perfect height and style.
Jennifer Aniston proves that leather flip flops are yet another amazing option. They are a great investment because they will last forever. Tkees‘s Zinc flip flop, as worn by Jennifer, comes in a wide selection of playful colors and is super comfy! Their cushioned footbed and slip-free rubber sole have made them a summer must-have for many celebrities alike. Another colorful option is Splendid’s Madrid Colorblock flip-flop. They feature two colors on the slender strap and come in three different color combinations that are wonderful for summer.
If casual just doesn’t describe you, don’t worry! We found 3 versatile, yet fancy flip flops that are dying to be worn at more places than just the beach. MICHEAL Michael Kors’ Hamilton Croco Jelly Sandal features the chic “MK” logo on a crocodile printed jelly material in tangerine. Or, for a super feminine look, Salvatore Ferragamo’s Bali Sandal has an oversized bow that is sure to get your pedicure noticed. Lastly, the Fatima Sandal by VC Signature has shimmering gold tassels that will not only look good with a bikini, but also with white jeans or a summer dress.
