Here's How You Wear Flip-Flops in the City

Flip-flops are the no-brainer go-to footwear if you want to feel comfortable whether that's walking on hot sand or getting through a tough commute in the morning. Though comfort doesn't always equate to style, because flip-flops are also a household staple and a dressed down garb. Not unless, your flip-flops look like these:

Minimalist and sleek, with slender leather straps and a slight heel, Havaianas You is the Brazilian footwear brand's latest offering, and probably the dressiest pair of flip-flops you will ever see. With a thin leather thong, the style comes in two classic colorways black and rose gold that make them look and feel more like a classy pair of sandals.

Here's how to take your flip-flop style up a notch and be ready for chic city living:

On weekends:

Wear your flip-flops with a shirt dress. Flip-flops this sleek are the best alternative to your favorite thong sandals. Paired with a crisp button-down, cat-eye sunnies, and your favorite sling or tote—it's a comfy shopping or spa day outfit that's still trés chic!

On a night out:

Put on your slinky flip-flops in a chill, unassuming venue, or when you're about go for recovery food. It's a chic post-heels option, when you're trying to sober up with friends at your favorite fast food joint after.

With denim:

Pair your flip-flops with culottes or shorts, but make sure that your top is quite dressy (a flouncy shoulder-baring or flared sleeve option, perhaps?) to balance out the laid back vibe of the rest of your look.

When doing the pajama trend:

Wear your pair with a lounge-y silk pajama top and loose trousers or a sexy slip. As long as you've got makeup on, with hair properly styled, and paired with a statement bag or clutch, you won't look like you just got out of bed.

With a maxi dress:

Wear your flip-flops with a knit or jersey maxi. Layered on with a denim or leather jacket, you'll exude a model-off-duty vibe fitting for the tropics.
