6 Ways J.Lo, Cindy Crawford, and Other Celebs Make Flip-Flops Look Cool

Growing up in San Diego, there was no question that flip-flops were acceptable footwear even if you're nowhere near the beach. When I became a fashion editor, however, I realized that people have strong opinions about the humble flip-flop. Many people shun the shoes in favor of more chic styles like strappy sandals or mules. But when you've got a handful of stylish celebrities endorsing the style, there should be no doubt that flip-flops can look just as cool as any other shoe.

Jennifer Lopez, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Ana de Armas were on the same page when it comes to styling flip-flops: They've all worn them with flowy white dresses for summer. Meanwhile, Vanessa Hudgens opted for a colorful crochet dress, Cindy Crawford went with a classic LBD, and Naomi Watts paired her flip-flops with wide-leg jeans. Scroll down to shop their outfits.
