Flip Flops- the only onomatopoeic sandal on record is the foundation of every girl’s wardrobe, even if only for a post pedicure walk home. Long before “flip flop” meant trading one’s true set of ideals for a more politically beneficial set, flip-flop was the happy slap of rubber thongs on a hot summer pavement.
We love the comfort and ease a great thong, ,this one truly aspirational from the House of Chanel made of crumpled, laminated goat skin to the adorable Lagerfield signature look alike is graced with not one, but two camelias and probably made by the B.F. Goodrich rubber company.
Jackie and the Palm Beach crew made the Jack Rogers whip stitched thong a summer necessity and after the initial breaking in period (about ten years) they are really comfortable AND classic.
Havaianas are probably the best know flip flop and with more than 300 styles there is personality flop for everyone. We love this striped French influencer model but you can’t go wrong with a basic, perhaps in thin basic black with a little down to earth metal pin.
You won’t have to wear white gloves with these black patent princesses but they elevate the flip flop to something a little more intense. Taryn Rose does her grown up black patent flip flop on a comfy platform that makes a city sandal of the lowly flop and if city girl glam is the look you crave, you can always go the Valentino rock stud route.
Living large on all toes.
