Are flip flops ok for an office that is "business casual"?
I think flip-flops are rarely consider appropriate office attire unless you work at a beach or pool.
In my opinion, open toe-ed shoes are not really appropriate for an office setting, even a casual one. The one exception would be maybe a pair of peep toe heels. A simple pair of flats, docks, or sperrys would be a better choice.
T-shirts, jeans, and flip-flops is casual. Business casual is a step up from that, so a dress shirt/polo with trousers/skirt and a comfortable shoe like a loafer. There might be specific cultures that are very casual and will have people wearing jeans, shorts, or flip-flops, but that wouldn't be the norm.
in my opinion, flip flops are only appropriate for the beach and poolside. I hate seeing everyone flopping around in them all over the place. At work they are worse, you have to listen to that flip flop sound all day long.
Flip-Flops are never office appropriate. The only way they could be is if they have a heel on them of at least 1 1/2 inches.
Certainly not on men. Women get away with a lot in the office when it comes to fashion because no one has yet defined what falls into the safe end of the gray area for them. There are so many syles of flip flops for women that some are not much different from certain other sandals or open-toed shoes. Work attire and its definitions are still defined around a male wardrobe. Women have to take each outfit on a case-by-case basis.
