Socks and sandals have long been deemed a major fashion faux pas. Typically associated with older men in white sports socks and Teva sandals (think dads at Disney World), style stars have stayed far away from this unlikely combination until recently.
Since seen on the pre-summer 2017 runway of popular luxury brands like Versace, Missoni, Thom Browne and Carven, this questionable combo has hit an all time new cool girl status! Now your favourite street style stars are rocking the trend and let’s not forget how stunning Kendall Jenner looked on the red carpet at the Canes Festival back in May, when she stepped out in sheer sockets and a pair of strappy Jimmy Choo stilettos.
It’s an unnatural combination, but it’s the perfect way to step up your style game this Fall and help transition your summer wardrobe into the cooler months. All you have to do is grab your favourite pair of sandals and invest in some statement socks to try the trend for yourself.
The key to successfully pull-off the socks and sandals combo is to stay true to your style and to create an overall look that goes hand-in-hand. If your style is casual, combine platforms with a pair of short striped socks for a chic sporty look and if your style is flirty, opt for sheer sockets with strappy sandals for a more classy look.
Besides being completely on trend, socks and sandals are also a practical combination. Wear a pair of socks with your new sandals to help break them in pain-free or just wear them to stay warm when the temperature starts to drop. Now that’s a fashion hack!
