STOP PRESS…. Word on the fashion street is that statement socks are in! Hold up while I catch my breath from laughing so much. Seriously, that is so funny. So, pretty much throughout my entire childhood, teenage and adulthood years, the sight of someone being seen wearing socks and sandals has always been a prime opportunity, to smirk, laugh and take the piss.
Yes, we all know what I am talking about. We all called that look ‘Jesus Sandals’ – so immature I know, but seriously, this is not a look anyone should sport. But hang on a minute, apparently if you buy some really expensive designer white socks (lucky you) and team them with some barely there strappy sandals then ‘apparently’ this is a trend of the moment. NOT!
I have been around long enough to know that this look sucks. I am not against statement socks, don’t get me wrong, I do indulge in stripey socks with brogues. I also think cute ankle socks with DM shoes or trainers look gorgeous, but if someone tries to tell me to put socks on with my sandals (heels or no heels) I am really not going to do so.
Hats off to you if you do, however the other issue with this look is how long will it take, whilst out and about for your socks to turn a manky colour? Not long I should imagine and then what, there you are walking around with dirty socks and sandals on? Hmmm classy. I keep cracking up whilst typing and thinking about it.
Anyway, please do go for it and prove me wrong. Always a nice surprise to have my mind changed in a positive way. Forgive me if I point and laugh first.
