Give it up for the latest in thing socks with sandals!August 10th, 2008 - 6:03 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Aug 10 (ANI): Once deemed as the ultimate fashion faux pas, wearing socks with sandals has suddenly become the latest in thing.
Just when people thought the knee-high sock trend was over, a shorter ankle version is set to settle in for summer.
Designers such as Anna Thomas and Trelise Cooper flaunted the new look on the runway at the David Jones spring/summer collections launch this week, paired with flirty 1950s-style skirts and mini dresses.
It was a case of anything goes, from towering stilettos and socks to platforms and socks and even strappy sandals with socks.
“From day wear to evening wear, it’’s a modern way to update your look,” Courier Mail quoted Thomas, as saying.
“Especially in summer, with nice tanned legs, it’’s a quirky take on a boyish look, she said.
Thomas said the key was to choose good quality socks in a thin cotton, not the chunky football kind.
But Brisbane shoe designer Kylie Ryan said the new trend was not for everyone.
“I think it’’s a younger person’’s look,” Ryan said.
“I admire anybody game enough to try and pull it off, but it has to be done well, she added. (ANI)
