We think it's fair to call Blake Lively a throwback fashion queen. In a few short weeks, she brought a middle school accessory and one particular shoe trend from the early aughts back on our radar. No, we're not talking about heeled thong sandals or those sky-high platform slides. This footwear pick is much more polarizing, and frankly, much harder to spot, considering its transparent nature.
If you guessed jelly sandals, ding, ding, ding! Lively, who's been trekking around New York City in fisherman jelly sandals, has single-handedly caused the resurgence of the shoe you probably owned when you were younger. You might have worn them to the pool (most are water-resistant and because of that, moms loved them for splashy outings) or for a day at the amusement park. But regardless of the occasion, there's no denying that jelly sandals are actually a practical footwear pick worth working into your outfits this summer.
Lively wore her jelly sandals with a printed maxi dress from Mango that looks as comfy as ever, a striped Aritzia coat, and a $7,050 Louis Vuitton handbag that's the perfect carryall for summer. Last week, she wore the same jelly sandals with a Reformation sundress that's currently sold out. Clearly, she loves wearing the shoe with midis and maxis, but they'd look just as good with jeans, shorts, and skirts.
