Flip Flops That Are Stylish Enough For Almost Any Occasion

Saturday, June 21 marks the first day of summer, so it totally makes sense that today (Friday) is National Flip Flop Day. After all, we need a day to prepare to get our feet prepped to be on display all summer.

There are few shoe options that make you feel as footloose and fancy free as flip flops. We love their casual nature, but thong sandals have gotten a bad reputation over the years for being inappropriate for most places or occasions.

To be sure, there are places one should avoid wearing flip flops -- including funerals, corporate offices or meeting the president, to name a few -- but there are also plenty of situations where they totally work if you're rocking the right pair.

With that said, we've rounded up some chic flip flop options that you can slip on for the beach or a night out on the town.
