June 11th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile 5 Chic Ways to Wear Flip Flops

Another trend that has typically held a bad reputation and negative style connotations has graced the latest runways, street style stars and celebrities alike: flip flops. Some will shudder just hearing the two words in connection with fashion, but the casual, minimal sandals are quickly becoming the “it” shoe of the season as fashion brands are creating updated iterations of the style. You’ll soon be seeing leather, heeled, square toe, strappy – you name it – versions of flip flops. No longer reserved for poolside or beach wear, flip flops are becoming the ideal summer sandal for completing chic, minimal looks and here is how you can style them for the season.

The Minimalist

Complete an effortless look comprised of trousers and an oversized button-down with the simple sandals for an easy summer look.

Midi Slip Dress

A simple slip dress is the perfect blank canvas for experimenting with any accessory. From traditional flip flops to multi-colored or even heeled, the slip midi dress and sandals are ideal pairing partners.

Keep It Playful

Ditch the urge to pair your new flip flop obsession with denim cut offs this season and try styling them with printed trousers or a skirt for a more playful look and will update the casualness of the shoe.
