Who could forget the lovable jelly sandals we all wore in the 90's. You know what I'm talking about; those strappy things that came in a rainbow of colors that were slightly reminiscent of today's hot gladiator sandals?
My favorites are by Givenchy $165, Barneys.com. They also come in pink.
Marc Jacobs makes jelly ballet flats that are jelly-licious and come in opaque black, and translucent yellow, pink, and gray
Target sells some that are similar to the MJ version at a fraction of the price
Urban Outfitter's "Fairytales Are True" Jellies come in black, blue, yellow, gray, and white, and are on sale for $10! I like the bright yellow versions for a splash of summery color.
And then there are the Marni jellies. Hot pink, translucent, and very '60's mod, like what Twiggy might have worn poolside.
Confused about what to wear about this daring, retro trend? Try neutral colors such as gray, white, and black. A casual Black T-shirt dress would fit the Marnis perfectly, and the Givenchys would look great with jean shorts and a slouchy white tee, perfect for those hot summer days.
Sorry for the lack of posts, schools almost out and I've been writing for TheVogueCity.com for which I will soon be reviewing sample sales. Check the Advice Apparel link for my articles and reviews!
