An instant hit at Stylist HQ and the ultimate in effortless summer footwear, luxe flip flops are here to serve all of your summer footwear needs.

They trended first at Copenhagen Fashion Week where black Havaianas was the footwear option of choice, worn with everything… and by everything we mean everything; from printed mini-dresses for daytime to elegant eveningwear. 

Later in the season, on the catwalks in New York, designers showed luxe leather styles in a chic palette of monochrome, beige and navy, worn with loose tailoring and silk slip dresses. 

In Milan and Paris the trend continued with elevated ‘thong sandals’ seemingly working with almost every piece in the Spring ready-to-wear collections.  

Whether you want a low-key, sporty style, a minimal leather option or something with a bit more detail, there’s something for everyone. Here’s Stylist’s edit of the best elevated sandals that won’t make you look like a tourist this summer.
