Flip flops are almost always regarded as a fashion no-no, and been hotly debated as one of the key factors that makes us Singaporeans look sloppy. (FYI, it’s the weather, not us.)
Still, they’re making their rounds around the island, because hey! We’re an island, the heat is unbearable, what are you gonna do if it suddenly rains and don’t wanna ruin your other shoes, you totally need it when you get a pedicure (like I did yesterday!!! :D) and maybe sometimes people spontaneously decide to go to the beach. Hmm.
Really, as long as your flip flops aren’t making the flip-flopping sounds or isn’t paired with your pyjamas and going around town, I’m pretty alright with it.
From a survey of 12-42 year-olds last week, using nothing but keen observation, the rubber of choice for most male and female alike, are Havaianas – the Brazilian footwear maker with a secret rubber recipe.
Now if you need some extra street cred, their slim sling-back slipper, ‘Fit’, got a collaboration with locally born and bred label, alldressedup. It comes in the usual black and white, but also a pretty light gold sand and silver colour, together with an alldressedup drawstring bag. And then there are also some signature knotted leather accessories by the brand which I have yet to get my hands on after all these years.
Available at S$69.90 from alldressedup stores from tomorrow.
