Runway Highlights: Top Row – Christian Dior, Burberry Prorsum, Hermès; Bottom Row – Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy, Rochas
Wait…socks worn with sandals is the world's worst fashion faux pas, right? Not this spring! As proven by several designers in their collections, this combination can look very chic if paired together thoughtfully and with confidence.
Whether you are dying to show off bright floral, ruffled anklet, or simple thigh-high socks, there is a sandal out there that can transform faux pas into runway worthy. Options include pairing some fun, retro pumps with rosey ankle socks or throwing on some soft, knee-high fishnets with your favorite bright t-strap sandals. You can even look a little 90s with some lacey-trimmed anklet socks paired with cute flats. Whatever combination you choose, remaining true to your own sense of style will decrease the possibility of feeling tacky. Avoid mixing printed socks with printed sandals and choose colors that complement each other. Even though you can wear socks with sandals this season, remember to do so tastefully!
