1. Artsy: Mixed metals laced with trendy turquoise? We’ll bet our summer vacation that these “Trager” sandals prove worth their weight in wardrobe gold. $45 at Aldo

2. Splurge: With multi-colored jewels sprinkled over satin, Giuseppe Zanotti’s leather thongs hint at an exotic travel itinerary. $495 at Bob Ellis

3. Basic: It couldn’t hurt to wear your own welcome into locales near and far—”Bimini Pineapple” flip-flops are accented with the traditional Southern symbol of hospitality. $28 at Tommy Bahama

4. Exclusive: Dressed up with crystal details, David Tate’s leather “Lollipop” flip-flops in “Clementine” promise ensembles a refreshing burst of color. $73 at The Shoe Fairy
