    Those look like football socks — interesting look with sandals.

      i don’t reject the idea but this particular girl didn’t manage to pull it off :)

        I do not understand why people dislike socks and sandals. I don’t mind but don’t judge until you see the full outfit. This look can still be nice think World Cup summer fever, I guess.. I’m not sure either actually…

          Um, probably because that’s not appropriate attire going out – particularly gym socks with pool sandals. “House chores” chic – no.

        I agree with you Andreea. It could be nice but here it is not.

    No, I really don’t like it: it’s the opposite of fashion.
    It’s anti-sex, too… my gosh

    No! It’s too much! I think it could be funny, but not stylish at all!

    I love that. I love all the athletic ugly/cool details these days. I love Birkenstock type shoes. Its so different then what we have now, and so pragmatic. It takes a bit of getting used to, so I am sure people will be disturbed by it. After all, its not the typical dainty flat, or high heel we are all used to. But I really look forward to a more interesting flow of looks with effective shoes that are anything but dainty.

    Her left knee is much admired among connoisseurs.

    Wow, I was dragged to the computer by my sis to look at this. OK. Its got a normcore vibe to it. I like what I see here. Very creative. Love to see the rest. Its like partial normcore.

      Oh no. Not the n- word! HAHAHA

    Interesting. Well, yes, that’s as good as it gets…

    For the young, hip and cool. For me, late thirties – too granny.

    Honestly, is that fashion or just bad taste plain and simple?

    • Lilian

      March 21, 2014 at 3:45 pm

      Yes, I think it is!

      In Italy we say: la seconda (the second)
      bad taste!!!

    Wish I could see this whole look!

    Ladies, please don’t follow cliched tourists over this cliff! There’s no sex here!

    This reminds of 90′s West coast style of Birkenstocks and socks.

  15. Buddy

    March 21, 2014 at 12:04 pm

    Don’t know about them socks. Maybe shorter to accentuate the leg more.

    Socks and sandals are the biggest fashion faux pas ever. I can’t believe I’m seeing it on this site, and that some are even calling it “interesting.”

  17. Anthony

    I find these socks so chic!

    J’ai un penchant pour l’originalitĂ© dans la mode. J’aime l’audace, et toutes ces personnes qui osent ce que je n’oserais peut ĂȘtre pas. En revanche, cette association a toujours Ă©tĂ© pour moi le fashion faux pas ultime. Des soquettes girly avec des sandales Ă  talons, ok, mais ce genre de mix and match, je trouve ça vraiment moche, oui c’est le mot.
    C’est bien que la mode repousse les limites, quand c’est dans le bon sens ;)

    Just because you see it worn in Paris doesn’t mean it’s fashionable.

      Cute nickname. True, but just because its not glamorous doesn’t mean its not good.

    @Rosem – I can confirm, that this ain’t hip and cool ! ^^ Think this is as close to individual style as it gets.

    March 21, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    No, no, no. Really one of the ugliest things you have ever photographed. No offense to you.

    first thought was, poor thing both her legs are in casts :-s

    Okay, I guess it’s supposed to be an ironic version of the “middle aged white man at the beach” or something of that kind… But why, why, why would I want to wear my grandpa’s vacation outfit? Well, maybe I’m not hipster enough for that.

    I would probably wear the socks with sneakers and shorts though…

    There is a big joke in Australia that socks and sandals are our winter foot wear. Though I don’t know anyone brave enough to actually do it.

    Love it! Its one of those looks only a younger cute woman could pull off. If I did this, I would look demented.

    No Way! No Way! No Way!
    I’ve been seeing this trend growing and I’m very (VERY) surprised…
    Is it playing Fashion or fashion victim?

    An absolute and firm “No.” Actually, Scott, I think it was quite nice of you not to show the person behind this choice.

    Everybody is so diplomatic. I HATE this look beyond comprehension.

    And I’m born and raised in Vancouver!!!!!!!

    Lucky your post’s title had Paris in it otherwise I would have thought it was ironic! Now I just think how decadent Parisians must be to find this edgy! Normcore huh! It reminds me of the French character in one of Nancy Mitford’s books who tells her English friends she’s discovered the most chic London store full of marvellous things and they’re all wondering what they’ve overlooked and it turns out to be ‘the Woolworth’.

    some looks are honestly for those 16 yrs old and younger, and that’s okay, diversity in fashion

    Nice match…
    I’d prefer shoes, personally…

    Would need to see the entire outfit to see if it works, but on its own the combo doesn’t look very stylish..

    Come on! just old german people still wear in this way!!!

    March 28, 2014 at 5:33 pm

    Please make it stop!!! I think everyone has a great grandmother who has been wearing this for many years…photographing these will only encourage more to wear this. Very excited for the upcoming photos of men with their pants pulled way up way too high.
