Like it or not, jelly sandals are back in a big way this summer. Luckily our statement shoe of choice in elementary school has grown up a bit since the playground days, revamped by a few of our favorite designers. Despite our love for nostalgia, we've been hesitant to embrace this trend as of yet but now we're dying to scoop up a pair in every color. After all, the flip-flop's edgier cousin looks equally as fresh for day or night. Check out some of our favorite finds:
