Flip Flops That Are Stylish Enough For Almost Any Occasion

Saturday, June 21 marks the first day of summer, so it totally makes sense that today (Friday) is National Flip Flop Day. After all, we need a day to prepare to get our feet prepped to be on display all summer.

To be sure, there are places one should avoid wearing flip flops -- including funerals, corporate offices or meeting the president, to name a few -- but there are also plenty of situations where they totally work if you're rocking the right pair.

With that said, we've rounded up some chic flip flop options that you can slip on for the beach or a night out on the town.
