Every summer I make a vow to not wear socks until September. It’s partly because socks take up a lot of laundry room, and partly because I like having my footsies exposed and au natural during the warm weather. My solution? Flip flops! Here are five pairs that make my feet look good. 1. PacSun's Billabong Nikki Sandal (pictured, $12.50). If you’re like me, all flowers make you want to do is take a Claritin. But this bright, summery floral print keeps my allergies at bay and saves me a trip to Rite Aid.
2. Havianas' Kid Robot sandal ($35). The popular Brazilian sandal maker collaborates with Kid Robot to create these pop inspired flip flops. In true Kid Robot fashion, they come with a great matching keychain and… they glow in the dark! This means your friends won’t lose you on those night walks at the beach.
3. Hollister's California Flip Flops ($24). When you go out to sea, make sure to coordinate your shoes with this navy blue and white striped pair. Even if you don’t know what “starboard” means, you can fake it wearing these.
4. Paul Frank's Julius Skurvy Dot Flip Flops ($12). Paul Frank’s friends Julius and Skurvy join forces on these pink flip flops to forge the perfect union of monkeys and skulls. These two go together better than peanut butter and jelly.
5. Preppy Girl Gift's Black and White Polka Dot Flip Flops ($32 + additional charge for initials).For the ultimate accessory in preppy footwear, this black and white polka-dotted pair can be monogrammed. Blair Waldorf’s headband ain’t got nothing on these flops.
