Flippity, floppity, flip flops!
Flip-flops or more commonly known as slippers or thongs are now becoming a trend in fashion. As defined, flipflops are an open type of outdoor footwear, made of a flat sole held loosely on the foot by a Y-shaped strap like a thin thong that passes between the biggest toe (the first toe) and the second toe and around either side of the foot. It may also be held to the foot with a single strap over the front of the foot rather than a thong.
Flip-flops were originally from Japan, which was popularized in the 1930s. Later on, new versions were made by people from America and New Zealand. Up until the present, flip-flops are being reinvented from time to time in terms of material used, colors, styles and designs.
With the definition itself, it is obvious that wearing flip-flops can be very relaxing and comfortable. It is perfect to use when strolling, malling, and just going around town. You can wear them with shorts, or skirt, or a pair of jeans with your favorite tee shirt or blouse. It is very fashionable, especially that you can choose from a very wide variety of flip-flops differing in their style and material used.
Flip-flops can be found anywhere from markets, to department stores, to specialty stores. As you can see, flip-flops may range from less than a dollar to more than twenty dollars, depending on the brand and material used.
At present, flip-flops are not only the flat, plain thong slippers we are used to. They now come in different styles like wedges, heels and slides. You can really make your style more exciting by wearing these fashionable, yet comfortable flip-flops. If you want to look chic but still feel comfy and relaxed, try wearing flip-flops. They’re cute, relatively inexpensive, and fashionable too.
