Jelly Sandals: BFF’S or Ex-BF?

Is anyone else sick of them yet or is it just me?

Just a few days ago I saw a story on Snapchat about New Jelly Sandals for the Summer ☀️.

Jelly sandals again? I couldn’t help but wonder how many phases the jelly shoe trend could have before it finally dies.

Jelly shoes were birthed into the fabulous generation that was the 90’s. The jelly-ness then came back around 2012, when Tumblr fans began to wear see-through boots and raincoats.

Soon after this brave small group of niche fashion lovers cracked the barrier to the past, regular shoe stores began to produce the classic 90’s jelly sandal styles. As seen below.

Now it is 2017, and new concepts and colours of jelly sandals are still exciting everyone’s minds and wallets.  Jelly sandals now come in gladiator styles, flip flops, slip-on slides, as well as Birkinstock-esque buckle strap sandals.

Trend Watch: Micro Handbags

As seen on the runways of Fendi, Valentino, Coach, and more, tiny handbags have big brands squealing.

A common first reaction is why would I spend that much for something so small, nothing will fit in it, right? However, some people are loving the small size because it pressures them to keep only the essentials. Ironic, that an item created by consumerist culture is inspiring people to have less, but it’s true!

In an age where everything you need is either in your phone, or your wallet, you don’t need much else. This can be hard to imagine for girls who are lifetime best friends of the ‘hobo bag’, the seemingly endless bag that you could fit everything into. But do you really need the entire contents of staples, or that wad of napkins in your purse?

This trend has definitely been embraced by Parisian women, who already use their lipstick as their blush and vice versa. Prioritize what you absolutely need, and don’t keep things around “just in case”. Although the very tiny ones, such as Valentino’s matchbox sized bag are a bit extreme, try one just big enough for your phone and some cash, and feel the freedom!
