Ashley Olsen is here to announce to the country (well, to NYC at least) that it’s officially time to switch over to foot-exposing summer shoes. For an Olsen, you may assume that means fisherman sandals or some other sturdy option, but no, she’s opting for the polar opposite of those chunky boots that were everywhere this year and wearing flat flip-flops.
While her shoes may look quite beachy at first glance, they’re The Row (of course), so no cheap rubber flip-flops here. Hers are as elegant as flip-flops get, with leather construction, an ankle strap, and square toes. She paired them with oversize suiting, resulting in an outfit of contrast: fancy beach party on the feet, business on the top. If you’re going to wear flip-flops in NYC, this is how it’s done.
