Whether you spend pocket change on rubber shoes to wear around the pool or hundreds on an exquisitely crafted leather pair, this delicately thonged shoe style has a myriad of personalities. When worn imaginatively (frayed-hem jeans with a white blouse are a good starting point), flip-flops don’t have to be reserved for just the tropics. As with all summer staples, the early bird really does catch the worm, so get to shopping with the edit below.
