IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HAVAIANAS
Right now, fashion is at an impasse about what to do when one of their rules are broken. While sandals and flip-flops are generally a no-no, fashion shows this year as well as celebrity sightings sporting the pair are seen more frequently. Simply because they’re really, really comfy.
And while the flip flop and sock pairing soars in other countries, flip-flops are already a staple in every Filipino household. Just looking at how any of us dress points out that pairing literally anything with flip-flops is a cool sartorial move. It dresses down formal pieces, and exudes a certain laidback vibe that shouts an understated cool. (Just make sure your feet are nice and clean.)
So the only thing to be concerned about is the right pair of flip-flops. If you’re picky with options, like how it looks and how it feels, then Make Your Own Havaianas is right up your alley.
Think of MYOH this way: it’s the wilderness of joy. Hundreds of options are there so you can customize your own pair. And to top it all off, there are pins available too! A slice of pizza, a palm tree, a smiley face, and the commemorative rainbow pin might just be the extra style tip you want to add to your daily flip-flops. Feeling extra spicy? Try out their commemorative sole which reimagines camo with green banana leaves and a blue background.
Customizing? That’s in. Slippers and sandals? Plausible future fashion statement and a definite mood setter that tells you to stay cozy.
