Socks with sandals? Go for it!

This Spring, fashion trendsetters are breaking the ‘no socks with sandals’ rule. Would you dare? Here are some tricks to master the look

Socks with sandals? Go for it!


Sandal pairing: Socks pair best with wide strapped, chunkier sandals, whether flat or high-heeled. Pairing socks and sandals with a similar tone or colour palette to one another is the chicest way to go, even when it comes to brights.

Sock style: Choose a thin pair in either a solid knit with details like ribbing or scalloped edging or a bold print.

Height and fit: Go for socks that cover the ankle but stop below the calf; if they’re longer, gently scrunch them down. Make sure socks fit well, without bunching at the toe or heel.
