Let's All Agree, This Is Exactly How to Wear This "Ugly" Shoe

There was a time not so long ago when flip-flops were a no-go for trendsetters like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. But, as we know, fashion is often fickle, so we're saying it: Break out your flip-flops (but, hang on, there are caveats). The casual sandal can look perfectly cool when styled right, as proven by model Ashley Graham.

While some feel these polarizing shoes are best relegated to the beach, Ashley proves that when they're paired with a sleek workout ensemble, flip-flops lend themselves to the relaxed model-off-duty look. Where a more dressed-up sandal might clash with Ashley's workout look, sleek black sandals keep things understated and simple. Bottom line: While we can't say that flip-flops have completely crossed over, with the right look, they're the perfect summer sandal. Still not convinced? Check out Ashley's flip-flop look below, and then shop styles you'll want to wear this summer—we promise.
