    I love all those styles with socks in the sandals, but my favourite one is the one in red! So beautiful!

    This is great! I am thinking about this for a while now and I hope this spring I will finally try this on myself. Great inspiration as always.

    i think socks and sandals can look really quirky and cute, but I am far too scared to try it out myself. i especially like the photos with the wedges and the last photo on the right hand side.

    Gorgeous! I’ve always loved this look. Especially on the lady in the red skirt and the one in the leopard coat.

    Your pictures has such vibrant and beautiful colors. Do you look for the best possible lighting when you shoot or is it in the post processing? I’d love to hear your secret.

    I heart socks and sandals so much!!! The bizarre things is I can never seem to find the right socks. Great looks, great pics!

    Top left is really the only one who pulled it off…maybe bottom right. I have worn knee socks with short dresses before, but with closed toed heels…hmmm, I may have to try this :)

    Many times they are great and even sexy but it is not a must combo I may say! Well spotted those ones though :)

    There are only a few looks in which I like it but most of the time I just don’t get it. On the first outfit it kind of fits the picture but the 4th photo is one big mystery to me…

    If you are thinking about socks and sandals…

    If you don’t already know the answer to that question, look at the two women in the photo in lower left hand corner…

    • Zenobiar

      February 21, 2013 at 6:38 pm

      Agreed. If U still think socks with sandals look good look at the lower left photo. And avoid Southern CA and South TX.

    • Noemi

      February 22, 2013 at 10:19 am

      I was thinking the same. There’s no comparison between the two women. The one on the right, which I’m sure is Giovanna Battaglia, with her Valentino’s studded shoes is on another level.
      Socks with sandals are quite man repeller and not flattering at all.

      • Mireya

        February 22, 2013 at 3:41 pm

        “Socks with sandals are quite man repeller”… Because women must dress themselves ONLY TO ATTRACT the opposite sex ??? Puh -leese.

        When I wear sandals I always wear socks with them. Otherwise I get blisters.

        If it repels men that’s all the more reason to wear them. I’m an aromantic asexual.

    Love the red! When I lived in Albany, NY I always wore knitted wool socks with my Kork-Ease and walked easily above the snow!

    February 21, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    Love the lower right photo! Socks with these sandals-a definite yes. Socks with flip-flop sandals or Birkenstocks-no!

    I don’t care who does it, or how they do it, it all looks WRONG!!!

    February 21, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    I love this look, but I always feel like I should wear boots because in the summer it’s too hot for them so now is the time. Sandals are good without socks all summer long, but I still think the socks and sandals look is adorable and makes a statement!

    no one – not even the sartorialist is gonna change my mind about socks and sandals.

    I am not the bitchy, eye rolling type but this brings it out in me.

    Even Garance could not pull this off.

    Love the look…I’ve noticed that a couple of designers are continuing the trend in their fall collections. I think it’s great..as are your photos!

  37. Sarah

    February 21, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    All these looks work better without the socks. Does not work in terms of good proportions and really looks absurd with platform sandals.

    Lived thru this in the 80′s. I like it, tho I don’t want to. It kind of tones down the inherent sexiness that heels otherwise have, no?

    I’m not thinking about socks with sandals– which is a crying shame because my feet are pretty unattractive… still, no.

    On a young woman this can look great….I especially liked the top center photo of the girl in the red skirt. On an old lady like me…no. I would look like entering my second childhood. Too bad. It looks comfortable.

    • Nanna

      February 22, 2013 at 4:56 am

      Agree! It is only for the young. I would love to do it for comfort but would look like a crazy old woman.

  47. Variel

    February 21, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    I’ve been wearing socks with my pumps and sandals for a while now. Not really for fashion – it’s just easier on my feet (comfort and warmth). : ) Of course, when doing this I ensured I looked fashionable. I hope.

    It’s a classic although I prefere bare legs and sandals, they give you the feeling that summer is never gone away or that spring is around the corner :))

    I really like this combination but I always pair the socks and shoes wrongly or do it on a totally wrong outfit and it comes out horribly! Anyone has any tips?

    This is the sort of look I’d love to try… but I always worry it would never suit me. Top middle looks great, especially.

    In reality how often do you see this look? I believe confidence is the key for these looks and age appropriate. Love the concept and wish i could carry it off !

    Man, the first lady is sneaky! I don’t know how she’s so good at playing with her colours (especially the oranges). Her oranges are playing hide-and-seek. Amazing. Her socks and shoes, then the dress too… omnom.

    As a guy I find it one of the sexiest statement a women can do. She’s sort of sharing something intimate, displaying stocking feet like that, wrapped in sandals, especially if with hosiery, love the sheer factor there….
    but I wonder, where do these women find the courage to do it :) lol…but yeah, love it love it.
