Why Dressy Flip Flops

Flip flops are simple, and their simplicity lends itself to not only comfort in the form of ventilation for your feet, but also low price. If you take the most basic form of flip flops, they are just a sole that is held to the feet by a strap which looks like a thong. In fact, in some places flip flops are called thongs!  They are also called chappals, sandals, jandals, zoris, pluggers, double pluggers – and a host of other names showing us how popular the world over they are.
With their simple construction, they lend themselves also to ornamentation. Making them dressier is quite easy, because their straps act as a base over which designers can add jewels, sequins and more. These straps can be colorful, and made out of different materials like fur or suede. Even the base can be made with somewhat higher heels, which will add one more dimension to your dress. When made in such manner, they are also referred to as sandals.

Making them Dressier

If you are interested in making your own style of flip flop, it could not be easier. All you need is a base with straps, and the materials that you want to add to them. Many stores have blank slate flip flops, or if they do not, just choose a very basic model that has the right color and build. Then you can add jewels, gems and flowers of your choice to it to make them more glamorous. If you are so inclined, you can even paint them a color or colors of your choice to go with that blue dress of yours.
