How To Rock Socks With Sandals Look
Wear Socks With Chunky Sandals
Chunky sandals are also huge this summer 2014 and are perfect for rocking socks with sandals trend! The sky is your limit here in terms of what to wear with the socks and chunky sandals: miniskirts, mini shorts, maxi skirts, cropped pants, full length pants, all kinds of jeans… I am going to tell you a secret: It is easier to pull off the socks-with-sandals look if you do go for chunky footwear.

With Black-And-White Combo
Going with white socks to wear with your sandals seems as the most effortless way to rock socks-with-sandals trend. You can opt for “classy” black-and-white combo, if socks with sandals can even be referred to as classy.

Wear Socks The Same Color As Sandals
You are obviously style bold if you are looking into rocking this trend. If you still need some time to wrap your mind around it, you can go with the “safest” combination and match your socks to the color of your sandals.

Wear Socks With Ruffles Or Polka Dot
To go with especially romantic and super cute look you can choose to wear socks with ruffles or lace finishing or cute prints such as polka dot. Personally, I have worn cute little white socks with lace finishing together with black feminine sandals, and I absolutely loved the look!

Wear Socks With Your Birkenstocks
“Ugly” sandals – this is how in my mind I call Birkenstocks and any sandal similar to them. Their “ugliness” doesn’t stop me from wearing and being in love with them. I made sure I picked ones for myself as soon as the summer started. If you are not too much into super cute and super romantic look that previous combo offered, you might like this one. Birkenstocks are great for wearing with socks – whether with matching color or contrasting one

Wear Socks With Heeled Sandals
Pretty much almost every combination I mentioned earlier, such as black-and-white, monochromatic, color blocking will work for either flat or heeled sandals. In my opinion, wearing socks with heeled sandals is very high fashion-y and takes a lot of courage. But if you are into breaking the style rules this summer, why not start with the boldest combo?

I have to admit, I was not the first one to try out this socks with sandals trend in my circle. I knew about the trend, I have meant to try it out, but never took time to actually experiment with it until… Until one day my sis-in-law sported socks-with-sandals! After that I made sure I tried the trend out before it becomes the mainstream. Let me know what you think about this “nerdy” fashion trend, which used to be a fashion taboo, but is not anymore. So, what do you say – to wear or not to wear?
