Flip flops. They’re great for the pool, or even just out and about. Come summer time chances are most of us will have at least one pair in our wardrobe, so why not make them something special? Here are two great pairs that are fun alternatives to your basic solid color flips. If money is no object, you’ll love the Royal Plush Olive Fluer De Lis Flip Flops ($70), and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth; the sandals are embellished with rhinestones and a metal fluer de lis pendant. For something a bit less pricey, there’s the Havaianas Hearts Rose ($18); the colorful heart pattern looks almost good enough to eat!
A hoodie is the perfect item for lounging around the house or perhaps hitting the gym. But why not amp up the style a little bit by picking one with a cutesy pattern? If hearts are your thing, the Juicy Couture Puff Sleeve Hoodie ($128) will steal yours. The cropped hoodie comes in gray and is covered in adorable little yellow hearts. And for the music lover, there’s the less expensive Music Note Hoodie from Delia’s ($44.50). The black and white print, accented by dark blue and pink are simply perfect.
So you’ve already started to stock upon clothes to keep you cool in the heat, but you can’t forget to protect your eyes from the sun! A pair of round, Jackie O style sunglasses are classic and look great with any outfit. Thankfully, you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to get this look; the Armani Exchange Round Logo Sunglasses ($70) will do the trick perfectly. But if you don’t mind the splurge, go for the Dita Pretender Sunglasses ($175). The great thing about these two pairs is that they’re not so huge that they’ll look silly; they’re just right.

What’s better for spring than a printed, flowy, spaghetti strap dress? Nothing, really. These two dresses are airy and chic; a great combination for warmer weather. The Diane Von Furstenberg Naro Printed Dress ($345) hangs over the body, ties at the waist and is covered in large tan flowers. And the less expensive Yaya Afalo Love Rabbit Print Jersey ‘Flame’ Dress ($105) comes in a pretty shade of muted yellow, and yes, those are rabbits printed across it. A bit unexpected, but it boy does it work.

how about a pair of shorts that are meant to be worn with something other than flip flops? Tailored shorts are a great alternative for those of us who want to stay cool but still look put together. They can be paired perfectly with heels, or just a nice pair of italian leather sandals. The Diane Von Furstenberg Jonah Shorts ($175) in brown linen/viscose, will go well with a pair of sling back wedges. And on the more budget conscious end is the white Martin Cotton Shorts by Banana Republic ($44) which can be paired with a pair of black lace up flat sandals and tops in a variety of colors. No matter which pair you choose, you’ll look stylish and have tons of options on how to accessorize them.
