I’ve had my share of days when I really just need to get up, throw on some clothes, and slip on a pair of shoes and go – whether I’m running tragically late or just simply can’t be bothered to put in the extra effort of tying laces or buckling buckles before heading out the door. But throw-on-and-go functionality doesn’t necessarily have to make you look like you dressed with lightning speed (in the dark, no less). Flip-flop wedges combine the easy slip-on wearability and versatility with a little extra height that helps elevate your day-to-day summer look – both literally and figuratively – so you can get ready in a flash without sacrificing on style. Stripe-y nautical-inspired sandals like these J. Crew wedges or these Ralph Lauren Jae thong wedges have “summer” written all over them, and look effortlessly casual-cute paired with skinny jeans or distressed cut-off shorts. Elongate your legs with minimal effort thanks to these nude-hued Tory Burch wedges, or opt for these goes-with-anything Romy cork platforms from Sam Edelman. What are your favorite go-to casual summer sandals? Let us know in the comments!
