You Can Never Have Too Many Flip-Flops...
Every woman loves a good pair of flip-flops and just like bags, a girl can never have too many! Without a doubt, flip-flops are the most essential style for summer, so it’s good that they come in so many different colors, prints and designs. If you’re looking to try out some new styles this season, you must check out these 5 flip-flop brands to know right now.

The best thing about this Brazilian brand is that they feature seemingly every color under the sun, as well as an endless variety of styles and designs. Whether you’re looking for some sporty solid styles, flip-flops in bold flashy prints or even those with sparkling Swarovski crystal details, Havaianas has something for the whole family!

The classic iPANEMAs are similar to Havaianas but they feature a softer footbed and lower price point. In addition to classic styles, they also have some flip-flops with heart and flower embellishments on the straps that are unique, feminine and totally adorable! Although iPANEMA is already a best-selling brand all over the world, they’re just starting to make a name for themselves in the U.S. so if you want to be a trendsetter, definitely check out iPANEMA.

They were created with makeup in mind, and have been dubbed “cosmetics for your feet.” All colors and styles mimic different kinds of cosmetics, such as “foundations,” “liners,” “polishes,” “glosses” and more. The foundation flip-flops are probably the most popular and they come in different skin tones; if you get one to match your complexion, not only will it elongate your legs but it will make your pedicure look amazing!

Along with their swimsuits, PilyQ is launching a new line of flip-flops that feature a thin sexy strap. They’re made of faux leather and have a comfy flexible sole. The line features flip-flop styles in classic colors, neutral hues, metallics and more. Furthermore, you can get them in smooth faux leather, a chic textured crocodile embossed style or even in soft suede!
Finally, if you’re looking for flip-flops that are both playful and totally unique, Melissa Shoes is just for you. Not only is Melissa Shoes a real innovator in the world of flip-flops, but they’ve also been called the first real jellies brand to stress elegance, art and fashion-forward designs. All flip-flops feature feminine and whimsical styles that are truly works of art. In addition to flip-flops, Melissa Shoes also has a number of sandals, flats and even wedges, all made out of plastic!
