Sponsored Post: Flip-flops can be fashionable too

Most of us think of flip-flops and sandals as casual beachwear accessories to be worn while relaxing on holiday, pottering around the garden on a summer’s day or soaking up the sun while at the beach. But just because they’re comfortable, hugely practical and more often associated with dressing-down and enjoying yourself, it doesn’t mean we can’t look fashionable at the same time as wearing them.

That was certainly the case for Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney when he was spotted in a pair of stars and stripes sandals by the Daily Mail. Sure, he may be taking the whole ‘adopting the country of my new wife’ thing a little too far, but you can’t say he doesn’t look stylish. Other celebrities customizing flip-flops to become more than just a casual beach accessory include Nina Garcia, Courteney Cox, Rebecca Romijn and Tori Spelling, all of whom teamed up with a trendy clothing line to launch a special Mother’s Day Mommy & Me flip flop collection.

The collection aims to plug into that age-old tradition of children copying their mother’s fashion style with a matching collection of adult and children’s flip-flop shoes, all of which have been custom designed by one of the celebrity mothers. Every pair of sandals is supposed to reflect the personal style of their designer, harnessing them so that they’ll be fun and funky enough to look great on kids as well as parents.

However, if you think all that might be a little naff – plus, kids copying their ‘moms’ is surely more of an American thing and definitely one that gets boring pretty quickly for the little ones – then check out that the fantastic selection of gladiator sandals and flip flops at You’ll be able to find all the colourful designs you could want for your kids to tread the sand this summer, while a few more grown-up styles should cater for adults whose idea of fun isn’t to match their children item for item in the clothing department.
