It’s a Thing: Socks and Sandals

 What do you guys think of wearing your socks with your sandals? Once upon a time, pairing socks with sandals was the ultimate fashion faux pas. It was just not done. But again, what I love about fashion is that there aren’t really any rules! Inspired by other amazing street-style stars and the runway, I decided to give socks and sandals a shot and there was no better place to do it than in Tokyo! Keep scrolling to read why you should probably wear socks and sandals this year:

PS: Heyyyy Evangelie 😉 

1. A Casual Touch

I’ve worn socks and heels before, but I love the cool, almost athletic touch that the white socks give to my strappy black heels. While you could go monochrome- I love the contrast of the black and white with my all black outfit.

2. Your Toes Stay Warm!

Nothing like an extra layer of warmth for your toes! There’s a bunch of really cool designer socks on the market right now (check these out!) but a pair of just regular crew socks (like these) work just as well! Safe to say that socks are finally having a moment right now!


3. Next Level Styling

Thigh high socks, athletic socks, however you want to rock it- it’s a great way to add visual interest and a new layer to your outfit! Plus, as it gets colder- it’s a great excuse to keep rocking those sandals.

So what do you guys think? Would you ever rock socks and sandals? Let me know in the comments below!

    And, do you know where Evangelie’s fun sparkly booties are from? I am obsessed with sparkle booties lately. I adore anything that can take a basic outfit to fab instantly.

    I recently rocked the sandal and sock trend too, and love it. I also did some stilettos and fishnet socks, which I loved. I’ll be posting it on my blog soon.

    Love your style, Chriselle!

  • You look so good in that outfit! One day I will be okay with taking fashion risk.

    Your skirt and boots are amazing!! Love your style, very edgy and vamp!

  • BJ says:

    I would wear ankle socks with casual sandals. I read that knee high socks is a new trend; I will pass on that. I do love your look with the white socks, although everything looks good on you.

  • I’m too intimidated to try it, but looks so cool and fun! x

    Not sure about socks with sandals as a trend. It looks great here for editorial purposes, but unsure if it will work on the streets.
