From Brazilian Havaianas to exotic gladiators, from glittery metallics to jewelled designs, women's flip-flops and thong sandals take you anywhere this summer. Swap shoes and trainers for these casually elegant designs to amp up your hot weather outfits.
Women's flip-flops and thong sandals are the most casual of casual footwear, perfect for everything from summer barbecues in the garden, to lazing around on holiday. Colourful and waterproof styles are perfect when you head out for a morning swim, teamed with your favourite bikinis. When you're ready to head for al-fresco lunches, followed by some sightseeing in town, metallic designs partner cropped white jeans to perfection, while jewel-encrusted thong sandals are dressy enough to take you out for holiday evenings, paired with colourful boho dresses.
We think women's flip-flops and thong sandals are pretty and stylish enough to be seen in places where flip-flops don't normally go. Shimmering designs with ankle straps are just right for date nights in posh restaurants when teamed with pastel trousers and slinky cashmere jumpers, while styles with cross-over straps are demure enough for the office. Team barely-there flip-flops with patterned summer shorts, or denim mini skirts and match their bright colours to your tops. Mid-calf or ankle-height gladiator thongs, and other strappy designs, add a stylishly fresh finish to summer cocktail dresses or wedding guest outfits. But, if you're just looking for simple beach footwear, then you can't beat the traditional waterproof Havaianas from Brazil.
