Socks and Sandals – No More a Fashion Faux-Pas

feminine yellow sandals

What the hell was thinking while forcing models to wear socks and sandals on the runway? I don’t know but I’d be more than surprised if he didn’t know it is a fashion faux-pas from time immemorial. There’s no wonder everyone got confused and regarded it as another fashion fad. However, what was the most shocking of all was that it wasn’t John Galliano (known for his controversial ideas) but who designed it and who works for an actually deluxe English fashion house Prorsum.

Golden rule from runway to wear socks and sandals: it’s safe to keep shoes and socks matching. The most advanced fashion players can choose white socks but have to remember to roll down the socks just above the ankle. The most conservative ones should try knee socks that don’t cover the feet.

Celebrities wearing socks and sandals

Few years ago white socks would be associated with and his famous moonwalk. Today one of the very few A-listers who dare to wear socks and sandals and do it in a glamorous way is Chloë Sevigny. She’s been wearing socks to loafers, high heels and biker shoes, the most typically as a complement to denim shorts or…a cocktail dress. I dare you, I double dare you girl!

Socks and sandals still on the runway

In Spring 2015, socks and sandals continue their surprising appearance on the high fashion runways. The most striking conclusion is that shoes rarely match sock colour. In fact, they are in contrast. Some of the looks are actually pretty interesting, for instance at I’m Isola Marras where black ankle socks match sandals and also the whole black and red plaid outfit. Some looks on the other hand look ridiculously mismatched like at Joseph where models wore ethereal maxi dresses complimented with nerdy sandals and gray winter socks. The trend also emerges in men’s fashion (Phillip Lim, Andrea Crews). Have a look at the pictures below to get the spirit of the slouchy trend:
