A Very Jelly Comeback

When I was in sixth grade, I was a complete fashion nightmare. I wore overalls and polyester shirts. I still hadn’t discovered the miracles of a hair straightener. I sported the dreaded combo of braces and glasses. But even back then, I had a penchant for trendy footwear. My most memorable favorites: high-heeled, pink tinted jellies. I wore them with everything; they were the epitome of cool shoes in junior high.

Apparently, jellies are now the epitome of cool shoes for all ages. The jelly resurgence is evident in every shoe store, dollar store and boardwalk boutique. Even the classiest of designers like Michael Kors and BCBG have hopped on the clear, plastic shoe bandwagon. They are the same cheap and funky shoes I wore a decade ago with a modern twist.

Jellies are the perfect solution to casual comfort. They can carry you from the workplace to the beach with a simple wardrobe change. Dress them up with a cute sundress; dress them down with jeans and a tank. I wore mine to a Memorial Day Barbeque and received countless compliments.

When I divulged my secret — Old Navy, $10 — I was the shoe envy of all my friends. I went back and bought them in every color. I suggest you do the same.
