Rules to Follow When Wearing Flip-Flops
Since U.S President Barrack Obama decided to wear flip-flops while vacationing- the humble footwear has gained prominence amongst fashionistas and the commoners alike. But wait, you just cannot wear them anywhere and any time- you’ve got to play the fashion cards well; unless of course you’ve been ill off late and still need your legs to gain foothold. So here are the rules, the do’s and don’ts when wearing flip-flops from now on.

1. For home- YES

Your house, your rules and do whatever it is you want- wear your flip-flops and care less about the time of the day or the night. Bother lesser to who comes visiting or what you do to make money; flip-flops in your own private Idaho is okay to wear, flaunt and walk around in.

5. To a bar or disco- NO

Remember, these are places that are usually crowded and you do not want to be unsightly; worse still being stomped and stamped upon. What if you get a little more than tipsy and the shards of broken glass pieces on the flow cut your feet? Most bars, pubs and discos have no provisions for emergencies- don’t flip it up for the gang who wants to enjoy- the answer is NO!

6. To a formal do- NO

Let’s make a list here- bar mitzvahs, social dinners and lunches, funerals and weddings and the works on the same lines- the answer is NO. It is a formal occasion and not a fancy dress event; even at the latter events you shouldn’t be caught in flip-flops, unless of course you plan your theme on the beach lines. Wear your big-boy shoes and heels to formal events please.

8. Rubber flip-flops- NO

Snakeskin or plastic flip-flops are fine, rubber isn’t! The latter for a car wash is okay, but when on the beach or a private pool party- embellished with rhinestones, such flip-flops make a statement; rub off the rubber ones please!

9. Dressy flip-flops- what are they?

Seriously, what are dressy flip-flops? Irrespective of the design, style, shade or colours and patterns or the cost as well- what are they? Flip-flops aren’t classy and they certainly aren’t ‘dressy’- be it Chanel flip-flops for $5000 or the gym ones for $5- quit calling them dressy!

10. Crocs or flip-flops

The latter please when making a decision on what to wear; but you’d rather have no ‘holey footwear’ in plastic a.k.a CROCS (George Bush, former US President wore them) over flip-flops- the latter are less garish, not on-the-face and so not intrusive too.
