When I was growing up, jellies were huge. If you’re not familiar with this kind of shoe, I feel bad for you. These were a great part of my childhood that I will never forget. What could be better than plastic shoes in neon colors with sparkles for a five-year-old girl? Not much. However, the jellies have made a comeback this season and now, they’re for adults too.
If you’re looking for a cheap pair of jelly sandals, head to Aldo. Right now, the Hardenburg Sandal is on sale for $13.99 in fuchsia, orange and yellow. More grown up than the jellies I wore as a kid, these sandals skip the sparkle and stick to being bright. These sandals instantly add a pop of color to any outfit.
For a thicker jelly sandal, check out Marc by Marc Jacobs. This sandal has wider straps than the kind from Aldo and some extra detailing, including a small logo plaque on the foremost strap.
Want a little sparkle? Victoria’s Secret has the right jelly sandal for you. The Sparkle Jelly Sandal by Colin Stuart is available in yellow, hot pink and black. This sandal is perfect for beach days and only costs $29.99.
What’s your take on the jelly trend? Should they be left to the kids?
