Flip-flops, slides, and slingbacks perfect for a seaside escape.
If you’re one of the lucky people about to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and head to a warm, worry-free locale, we envy you. Soon you’ll be waking to the sound of crashing waves and spending your days looking out at the ocean — cocktail in hand — far, far away from your email inbox.
We’re sure your packing list for paradise includes all the essentials: a cute bathing suit, a pair of cool shades, and of course, a lot of sunscreen. Another beach vacation staple is a pretty pair of sandals (or two) that can carry you from the pool to the bar and everywhere in between.
For us, a good pair of holiday footwear has to be both stylish and comfortable. As pretty as they may be, no sky-high wedge is worth the blisters. Instead, opt for chic slingbacks in metallic leather that would be a lot more appropriate for the relaxed resort environment. And for the beach, choose between a classic pair of Havaianas flip-flops and something more fun, like sandals with tassels or multicolored beading.
We rounded up 20 pairs of trendy and easy-to-wear sandals to take with you on your next beach vacation.
