Once considered a widely accepted fashion faux pas, an unfortunate blunder that befell the stylishly challenged, socks and sandals worn together is a thing now, perfect harmony —a trend that designers and fashionistas are embracing with carefree abandon. The proof lies on the runway.
After the initial shock, admittedly, the surprisingly endearing combination holds a certain offhand allure. But not any old sock or sandal will work. Team pretty pastels with metallic sandals, or get playful with polka dots and nude straps. Take on the sporty trend with color-blocked socks and buckled heels. If you’re intimidated by the trend, take baby steps and stick with those that fall in the same color family.
