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 katelovesme.net 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.
