This flatform flip flop trend is all over Instagram for summer

Posted by for Fashion

Upgrade your usual flip flops to a platform pair and you’ll nail one of summer’s key shoe trends. 

The words flatform and flip flops are not the sort that conjure up images of super chic fashion mavens. But as the fashion world relaxes into more comfortable dressing, these two shoe trends have combined to make the shoe of the season. Seen first at the always minimally stylish fashion brand The Row, the flatform flip flop has continued to be a cult item for spring/summer 2021.

The fashion crowd has upped the ante by pairing this previously holiday-only footwear with simple looks to elevate them. Gone is any form of print or raffia, these stacked flip flops require muted colours and sophisticated styling. Think loose trousers and throw-on dresses, tailored leather pieces and crisp white shirts.

These are the best flatform flip flops to invest in now and wear all summer.
