Emma Roberts wears the trending sandals we all loved as kids
You don’t even have to be particularly knowledgeable about fashion to realize that Y2K fashion is everywhere. Whether it’s low-rise jeans, slip dresses or micro-skirts: no trend is stopping at the moment. That also proves Emma Roberts, which brings back what is probably the most controversial 90s trend, namely Jelly Shoes.
Emma Roberts: Your jelly sandals weren’t just a trend when we were kids – they’re trending with the fashion crowd now too
Anyone who knows and loves Emma Roberts – like us – especially from the cult film “Wild Child” must be very strong now, because the actress has just worn shoes that would have driven Poppy Moore to despair: jelly shoes with glitter details . Admittedly, we too were a bit torn at first about our opinion of the swimming sandals, but somehow the look totally works. Especially in combination with a playful dress, Emma Roberts relies on the designer variant from Prada. The playful details of her outfit, such as the lace inserts in the white summer dress or the colorful accessories, already create total festival vibes, the controversial choice of shoes rounds off the fit in a surprisingly cool way and at the same time delivers absolute childhood nostalgia. In addition, the sandals are super practical because you can expose them to all the elements and – we’re sure – are currently so controversial that you’ll definitely get noticed with them at your next event. Because even if the looks with the sandals are piling up on Instagram, they are definitely still a pioneering fashion piece with eye-catching potential!
This is how you can easily recreate the swimming sandals look
Still not quite convinced by Emma Roberts’ unexpected shoe choice? Don’t worry, it took us a while to warm up to it too. However, once you get involved, you realize how ingenious her choice of outfit is: The jelly shoes are not only super comfortable and airy, they can also withstand a lot – which is particularly useful at festivals. Emma Roberts, who wore the look at Coachella 2023, probably thought so too.
And, if we’re all honest, we’re so little shocked in the fashion world these days that fashion surprises like these are more than welcome. In addition, a few years ago we would have shaken our heads at the thought of wearing Birkenstocks, colorful clogs or cowboy boots – and now these shoe styles are big trends with classic potential. So simply style the swimming sandals like the actress with your favorite summer dress or casually with jeans and a playful top. The only important thing is that you pay attention to outfit details, because special features such as colourful, filigree jewelery and romantic fabrics such as lace or linen create the perfect balance – without making you look like a hike on the mudflats.
