Flip-Flop burried on sand
By: Bermi Ferrer

Now that the weather is warm you can actually show off your latest pedi. We guarantee you’ll love the patterns on these bright flip flops, which kick off our seasonal style buys. Solid-colored sandals are now a thing of the past, and flip flops are the new place to express your personality in a bold way. Prints that don’t work well on other clothing pieces will look right at place on your feet, and they’ll pull together a more simple outfit to add some serious style. Besides, we’re seeing more simplicity in laid-back beach dresses, solid maxi dresses, and neutral swimsuits this season. So don’t be shy with your shoes this summer. When it comes to your flip flops, the more vibrant, bold, and colorful, the better!

Southwestern Print Flip Flops

Southwestern has been in demand for some time now, making it a fashion must-have rather than a trend. For a more versatile look, we suggest wearing these with neutral, solid colors, such as a white romper or black T-shirt dress. This way you’ll look cool and casual sipping coffee at your favorite cafe, but you’ll fit right in with your Western, bohemian style at concerts, art museums, and the new, hip dinner spot in town.

TJ Maxx, $14.99

Be effortlessly laid-back and chic with these adorable floral sandals. Double strap sandals were made for jumpsuits. The baggy one-piece is taking over the fashion world, and we’re not seeing it paired with delicate, strappy sandals or sneakers. These sporty, but stylish sandals look fabulous with one-piece swimsuits too. The clunky sandal would be overpowering with a bikini, but edgy cut-outs on this summer’s one-pieces will pop even more with these shoes.

Tribal prints are always hot, so it’s no surprise we love these flip flops from Roxy. A little bit surfer-inspired, we’d pair these with distressed, high-wasted denim shorts and a fringed leather shoulder bag. They’ll transition from boardwalk to bonfire, and even look great at the afterparty.

Ipanema Pineapple Sandal

Everything But Water, $26

Pineapple is the most wanted print this summer, but you won’t find it on dresses or tops. The vibrant print was made for your feet because they’ll show your fun, wild side without having to try at all. Wear these with nautical stripes and tribal prints, and they’ll look great with bright, solid bikinis.

Tie-dye is making a huge comeback this season. Rather than going for a “hippie” look with denim shorts, pair these with lace shorts and a graphic tee for the perfect festival look. Tie-dye isn’t just for festivals though, you can wear these flip flops on summer road-trips and to the farmers market.
