Socks Rock

socks with sandals

Before socks with sandals showed up on the runways of Marni, Hermès, and Burberry, I was a fan of the trend. Admittedly, it's not an easy one to pull off, but when done the right way, it adds girlish charm to your footwear. Besides, there are a handful of benefits to wearing socks with sandals:

1. Wearing socks is the ideal solution when you haven't updated your pedicure. Got chipped polish, blisters, or less-than-soft-skin? No worries, just pull on some socks and it all will temporarily disappear from sight.

2. Socks impart a quirky, feminine sweetness, especially pastel hues and thin nylon styles.

3. If your shoes give you blisters, wearing socks can protect your feet, guard against chafing, and add comfort.

4. The socks with sandals trend gives you a chance to show off those cute socks you have that may typically be hidden from view.
