When people typically hear someone mention pairing socks and sandals together, they would usually respond with a disapproving laugh, or say that sounds like something their grandfather or a tourist might wear.
But whether the world is ready or not, socks and sandals are making a serious comeback. They’ve gone from being a serious fashion don’t to a fashion do. From the runways to real life, it looks like this often-feared combo is here to stay.
If you’re unsure of how you feel about rocking a pair of socks with sandals, just think about all of the wardrobe-expanding benefits. You can get away with wearing pants that show off some ankle without freezing your legs, you can rock peep-toes and sandals without feeling like you’re getting frostbite on your toes, and you can give yourself a much-needed break from dull tights without feeling like you have to immediately turn to wearing pants.
So in case you’re not feeling this unconventional trend, we’ve rounded up the best examples to get you inspired.
So the easiest way to try out this trend is to go for a pair of both dark sandals and socks, as they’re the easiest to match. If you’re really feeling daring you could try a bold statement sock. Also, if you’re going to rock the combo with pants, make sure to go with a pair of pants that are cropped right above the ankle.
