Chic Style with Slides

Slides can look Chic and Stylish!!  I just proved it to myself with my wardrobe and I had my doubts.  It is all about balance and proportion.   After selecting the clothes for these slides my conclusion was slides dictate a Sporty, Classical and Simple look.

Below are a few examples from the slides I blogged about previously and now have the outfits to go with them.
