Flip Flops are an essential for easy summer style. But not all flips are created equal.

For the beach...
Rubber, with minimal embellishments are best - pick bright colors or patterns so you can spot them in the sand. Havaianas are favs but if you don't want to spend the money on "designer" flips go to Old Navy for a huge selection of colors at an incredible price (same ballpark as your daily latte).

For the city...
Beach flips get a makeover with crystals or in jelly form. Slightly upgraded and a tad less casual than their sandy counterparts, they're great for shopping and taking lunch al fresco.

For the evening...
With leather soles and metallic accents you can be just as comfy but a bit more appropriate for a casual night out. Be warned however, flips, no matter how expensive or sparkly or designer, may be frowned upon in finer establishments.

For work...
Unless you punch the clock in a crazy casual environment your flips will be a flop. Stick to sandals, espadrilles and ballet flats for the office.
