Flip Flopping on Flip-Flops

The summer season is a hot one and with that comes the attempt to look stylish while staying cool and comfortable. We’ve already gone over when it’s the right time to wear shorts during the summertime, but what about the feet? The feet are one of the warmest and most uncomfortable places on the body during the Dog Days of Summer, so it’s best to come up with an option to make them comfortable and look nice. Shoes and socks are great during the winter when they keep your feet warm, but during the summer it’s sometimes best to ditch the sweaty socks for the better and literally cooler option of sandals. Yet sandals, especially flip-flops, can sometimes be a fashion faux pas, so when is it okay to wear them?

Most will say that if there’s not sand or a beach involved it’s probably best to leave the flip-flops at home. Others say they’re in fashion, but only in certain settings. Flip-flops, or sandals in general are best left when hanging out with friends or taking part in activities that aren’t considered to be professional. Simply put, if you’re going to work in an office or going to a formal event it’s probably best to think long and hard before throwing a pair on. However, flip flops are comfortable and very well liked during the hot summer days, so if you’re going to wear them there’s a few rules you should follow before you show your toes to the world.

First things first, make sure you have the feet to pull off wearing sandals to begin with. Ugly feet and toes that aren’t pedicured can be an immediate no-no when it comes to wearing sandals. Also make sure the sandals themselves match the event you’re going to. Plastic, floatable flip-flops may be great for going to the beach, but invest in a nice pair of high brand sandals if you’re going someplace that demands style.

Summertime is a great season for style and it’s also a great time to wear basically whatever you want. However, if you’re going to wear flip-flops or sandals make sure that you don’t flip flop with the fashion rules to wear them.
