Not Your Daughter's Jellies: Four Styles That Won't Break (Or Get Gross) After A Month

Of all the 80s trends that I’ve seen return, I really never imagined jellies would be a hot item again. Although, now that I’m seeing all of the new styles available, it’s hardly the same old thing.

Granted, they’re all still plastic, so you’ll notice that the sweat usually absorbed by your leather sandals is a little more, shall we say, tactile. Although, lots of these cute style are breathable, provide plenty of flow-through, and are built to last.

1. I couldn’t decide whether I liked these See by Chloe Ankle Wrap Jelly ($125) sandals better in plum (here) or the jade. You can decide, but both jewel tones are rich and pretty, and would look great paired with a sundress.

Marc Jacobs Jelly Mouse Flats

2. Marc Jacobs’ Mouse Flats are a wardrobe staple, and it’s just a nice gesture of him to reissue the Jelly version ($160) in a set of bright spring shades.

Tod's Jelly Thing Sandal

3. Want to know when a trend has officially hit the zeitgeist? When a brand like Tod’s broadens its traditional mojo to create this eye-popping orange Jelly Thong Sandal ($175). Still waiting on the coordinating tote, though.


4. Perhaps my favorite new find is eco-friendly Brazilian brand Melissa Plastic Dreams (which StyleBakery Teen recently highlighted as a great rain boot alternative). The shoes use 100% recycled plastic and the designs are spot on. The Campana Zig Zag ($63) are edgy ballet flats gone deconstructed.
