|JuJu Babe Glitter Heeled Jelly Sandals - £25 - ASOS|
'High' heeled jelly shoes were the it shoes of the late 90s and everyone, everyone had a pair. Everyone except me, of course. My mum thought they were tarty, so I had to make do with the more practical flat version, much to my dismay. Sad story, I know. But I got over it. Kind of.

When I saw these heeled jelly shoes on the Topshop website a few years ago I was SO happy. Obsessed, in fact. Just as much as I was when I was a child. But this time was different.
As many problems and difficulties that being an adult brings, there is the wonderful freedom of being able to do whatever you want, wear whatever you want, whenever you want. And having a pair of heeled jelly shoes of my own was a brilliant reminder of that.
My ex boyfriend got me these for my 21st Birthday and I'll be honest, I have found these quite difficult to style, having only worn them a couple of times in the past year. Most people I know absolutely hate these shoes, but I adore them. They are the perfect reminder of my childhood, and this summer I'm embracing them 100%.
Wear them with:
- Denim shorts and a plain t-shirt
- A denim skater dress and frilly socks
- Loose fitting trousers and a tight tank top
- A bikini at the beach
What do you think – are jelly shoes one 90s comeback too far or a nostalgic gem of the past? I know I'll treasure these forever, no matter what anyone says.
