Throwing on a pair of super comfy flip-flops may be the easiest option but with a little effort, your summer look can go from drab to fab instantly with this season's hottest shoe, the strappy chain sandal. Style bloggers like Aimee Song from Song of Style are already wearing the trend with her highly coveted Isabel Marant "Rea" sandals that are nearly sold out everywhere. Here are seven styles that are available in stores now.
