Over the past couple of years, flip-flops have gone from a casual beach shoe to a go-to for many fashion experts. And honestly, can we really blame them? It's easy to throw on to any outfit, especially in these summer months when the weather is blazing and we don't wanna stuff our feet in socks and sneakers. But the best part? There are so many different styles and designs to pick from. Here are the best flip-flops to take your vacation wardrobe to the next level.

There is the classic flat option, kinda simple... we know. But luckily, many designers such as Chanel, Gia Borghini, and The Row have debuted different textures and colors that take the basic shoe to a whole new level. From leather to faux croc, there's pretty much anything you could think of in the market right now. This style goes with pretty much anything - from a maxi dress to stroll through the busy streets to tailored trousers for a chill summer night, anything goes! If we were to take one shoe on a trip, it would definitely be the classic flip-flop.

For anyone who wants to add a little bit of height to their flops, they should opt for the platform style. These have been seen everywhere recently, from our favorite influencers to A-list stars, these shoes are the new hot girl take for sandals - and we're totally here for it. These chunky flip-flops remind us of the early 2000s. And, as we know, basically all trends from that time trend to make their way back to us, so we're not surprised these shoes will be seen everywhere this summer. 

The third flip-flop style we recommend taking with you on your beach vacay is heeled ones. These are perfect for a dressing-up dinner outfit, especially if the restaurant is at the beach (no one wants sand in their sneakers)! The heeled flip-flop has been rocked by many supermodels like Ashley Graham to Kendall Jenner, so you know in no time everyone and their mother will be wearing a pair. If you too wanna style those shoe this summer check out this guide for the best flip-flops.
