The Verdict Is Out on Jelly Sandals

Jelly sandals were last seen on six-year-olds feet on pebble beaches and paddling pools, however this season marks their return to the main stream. I want to hate jelly sandals as they are everything that I despise: cheap looking, tacky and part of the ever-growing mountain of disposable fashion. However despite all of this I just can't help but love them! Jelly sandals are bright, bold and most of all great fun for the summer. I saw a girl wearing a pair this weekend and couldn't help but smile; it adds a quirky edge to an outfit and can be worn with just about anything, clashes and contradictions are readily encouraged. The fashion world has jumped at the jelly revolution with big names such as Marni, Tods and Topshop (see below) producing their own take on the nostalgic original.
