Bringing back, Socks and Sandals…




In a dark corner of our brain we all have an image of an old man working in a garden in black socks and brown sandals; definitely, he is not a fashion inspiration. We already spoke about tights and sandals.  There is one more similar controversial trend – socks and sandals! Like in track from “So Random” Disney Comedy Series:”Some haters say that look was never in…” (Can`t stop singing it!) When I started to look for pictures of “socks and sandals” fashion looks for this post, I bumped into a Wikipedia article about it. Look what it says:” Wearing socks and sandals together is a controversial fashion combination and social phenomenon that is discussed in various countries and cultures. In some places, it is considered a fashion faux pas.

The earliest evidence of wearing socks and sandals is documented at the archaeological site between Dishforth and Leeming in North Yorkshire, England. The discovery suggests that old Romans wore socks with sandals at least 2,000 years ago.

Starting in 2010…  several sources reported that socks and sandals had become a fashion trend in the United States and the United Kingdom, appearing in several runway shows, including those of Miu Miu (2010) and fashion designers Vivienne Tam and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (2014), and picked up by celebrities.” And I completely agree with Wikipedia that “Socks and sandals can be practical for weather transitioning unpredictably between warm and cold, and adding socks can also reduce the discomfort of breaking in new sandals.”

We can wear any socks with any shoes! The key to not looking ridiculous while pulling off the “socks combo” is to always keep your overall look in mind! If you don`t feel confident to wear Adidas sports socks with your new beautiful red Prada, you have a lot of options!

Try sheer, ladylike socks with a ladylike shoe: a mule, a block heel, or suede sandals. If you want to add a little something extra to make your look pop to you simple elegant dress, for example, pull out glitter ankle socks and feather-trimmed sandals.

Probably you know that feeling when it’s too cold outside to wear your favorite platforms, but your look is in dire need of them. Why not? You can pair them with sandals in the same color family or if you want more creative looks, use contrast colors. As I said before you can wear any socks with sandals! Problem solved! So, as we can see, wearing socks and sandals actually a fashion problem-solving hack, and your life is about to get much easier and more interesting now that you are an official participant in the trend.
