How to wear socks and sandals

As photogenic as they look, this combination is not an easy pick for anyone out there, unless you are a notorious street style star. For all of us, ordinary mortals, on the other side, the socks and sandals combination is slightly (at the least) unnatural. Well, since I am here to help, we are talking socks and sandals today through a cool outfit, that is literally within anyone’s reach. The secret here is to know some limits. To avoid being ridiculous (’cause I know this is your biggest fear), keep the socks as a complementary accessory, to a look that would look decent even without them. If, however, you try to manoeuvre something starting with the socks, all you’ll have in mind would be too childish or too foolish.

And because we are serious people here, let’s do a case study. My outfit is formed of a floral midi dress, a denim jacket and a pair of simple strappy sandals. I could have stopped here and it would have been just enough for a brunch out with girlfriends. But because we are all dying to be cool these days, I added the socks to invigorate the ordinary outfit a little. So, the key is to always keep your overall look in mind. In essence, the socks and sandals detail is not just a cool element, it is the fashion salt and pepper of the day and you better jump on that train. I promise, your life is going to get much easier, let aside the refreshing effect.
