Socks and Sandals-Seriously?

Victorian_Lace_showNO! Socks and sandals are not serious. They are a fun, refreshing opportunity to add some fresh fashion options to your wardrobe this spring and summer. It is OK to wear socks with your sandals or your favorite pumps. There is a lot of chatter out there about whether this look is out or in this year or if it is even an acceptable choice.  It certainly takes the right attitude, right shoes and the right socks. The combination is not new. We actually are borrowing and updating a popular look from the 50’s when women wore socks with their sandals and sneakers every day.

Last year we saw this look on the runway and it continues again this year particularly supporting some of the 2011 trends we are seeing such as color blocking, lace, and just personal choices from the feet up.

Take a look at some of the fashions that include socks this spring and summer.

This one is from Trendencias.

So, the sun is finally out and we begin to get our legs and feet ready to see the light of day.  We run to the salon to get pedicures, shave our legs, slather on the self tanning lotions, and change out our wardrobe for the fun skirts, shorts, and capris that we hope fit this year.  Just consider the option of sandals and socks and have fun.

Go ahead and try it–seriously!
