Formerly Known As

…a huge fashion DON’T.

Confession of the day: I like socks with sandals. There I said it. I’m not proud of the fact, but for some reason I like the weird way socks look with open toed platforms. Now there are obviously a great deal of rules and guidelines for effectively pulling off socks as a fashion statement. Which brings me to my next confession, I have in fact been looking for the perfect pair of socks to wear with some new cork wedges for over a week! I don’t know about you but for me that is far too long to be spending time shopping for socks!

Try a monochrome theme for socks and sandals to create a sleek evening look.

For all-day wear pair girly socks, think ruffles/lace/ anything floral, with a cute pair of flats.

Be a stand-out trend setter by contrasting brightly colored socks with fun, quirky wedges.  

According to the Telegraph, socks are the new tights this season. It is currently socially acceptable to pair all of your favorite open-toed sandals, wedges, flats (etc) with ankle, ruffle, knee, ribbed (etc, etc, etc) socks without ending up on the fashion don’t pages of Marie Claire.

Things to keep in mind: socks should not be too bulky or chunky but fit smoothly under the straps of your sandals. While patterns and prints are also acceptable just remember that classy trumps trashy any day, even if you are following the trend.
