It is difficult in the summer months to look fashionable because of the heat. Every other season has a staple fashion piece, but summer has nothing but the heat. That’s why it has been my mission this summer to find the perfect summer staple.

As I was walking downtown I spotted this Fashionista in a candy shop, and though it was blazing outside she looked nothing but cool. Once I saw her shoes I knew I had found my summer staple, the jelly sandal. It sounds crazy recycling a trend from our childhood days, but this edgy shoe can transform any look.

This Fashionista is wearing a retro inspired look from the movie Grease. She is wearing a high-cut black tank top with a circle polka-dotted skirt. She accessorizes this look with a pair of heeled black jellies, a gold chain necklace and a brown satchel. She shows that jellies can be as edgy as Dr. Martens.

The great thing about jellies is that there is a style for everyone. There are jelly boots, flats and sandals and they come in an array of colors. This trend can adapt to any look whether it is retro, urban or sophisticated. My favorite pair of jellies is a kate spade two-toned blue flat. I wear the shoe with dark skinny jeans, a striped cotton top and a black blazer and I’m ready for anything.

So this summer relive a blast from the past and buy a pair of jellies. They will make summer a season to celebrate.

Spotted: Jellies were spotted in Christophe Lemaire’ s spring 2014 menswear line.
