Socks with Sandals

By Gerard Wilton

When you think socks and sandals, you probably think of senior citizens and the unfashionable. Well, it is now no longer a fashion crime to wear this combo.

It's being seen all over the fashion weeks on both male and female fashionistas alike. The trend was seen at The Prada and Carven shows, and has now trickled down to the High Street via the Topshop look book.

Blogger, Pelayo Diaz of is a huge advocate of this look and can be seen on his blog and fashion shows rocking this look. So to is Sex and The City’s style maven Sarah Jessica Parker, who has worn this look a few times of late.

In Australia, the sock and sandal combo is slowly starting to take shape. There has been some sandal styling spotted with Aussie label Bassike, who shot their Spring Summer 13 campaign with sandals for footwear and had their models walking in sandals at the recent David Jones Spring Summer Runway Show.

So make like these trend setters and wear this quirky twist.

Shop the Trend:

The Teva branded sandals as worn on Pelayo Diaz’s can be found on

You can’t go past Birkenstock for the one and only original sandal as styled in the Bassike look book.

Of course you can’t wear the trend without the socks so head into Fashion Boutique Incu (located in the Galleries or in Paddington) and pick up some Vanishing Elephant or Richer Poorer socks!

Another favourite for everything socks is Happy Socks, specialising in colourful and patterned socks is a must!
