Why Do Brazilians Wear Havaianas Flip Flop?

Havaianas were created in 1962 as an affordable model of shoes worn by Brazil’s impoverished population.

How to Style Havaianas

Tone down a loud outfit

While having a bold outfit is always a chic fashion moment, you may be wondering how you can make it more comfy and balanced. Surprisingly, a pair of Havaianas can do wonders for your look without cheapening or taking away from it, acting like a backdrop for your eye-catching attire.

Make a workday outfit casual

When stepping out of the office, you can instantly bring your officewear to a much more comfortable and casual yet still stylish level by slipping on a pair of Havaianas. If you choose something in a neutral colourway such as black, nude, or white, this can keep your outfit from looking sloppy and still polished.

Bring your date night dresses to the daytime

You might absolutely love that maxi slip dress in your wardrobe but don’t know how to style it without looking overdressed during the day. Thanks to this simple footwear, however, you can put on any romantic dress built for evenings at any time of the day, wherever you’re going, and look both elegant and laidback.

Final Note

Havaianas are the practical summer footwear that we normally spot by the beach or even at home, but creative minds have brought them into the city in a big way. No matter what you pair them with, these shoes are the perfect accessory.
