Are you ready for the trend fashion didn’t see coming?
Everybody knows socks in sandals are a fashion faux pas. You relate them to people who spent no time looking into a fashion magazine – or this website for that matter. This article is here to tell you that those days are over.
Stylish girls everywhere are now combining their strappy sandals with socks. The sock and sandal rule has totally reinvented itself. Just as big square sunglasses and tiny oval sunglasses once were considered to be granny and not done, they make their comeback with a statement. What used to say ‘I don’t have a clue about fashion’ now says ‘I make the rules and then play with them’.
Miu Miu leads the way
At Miu Miu SS19 princess mules and diamond platform sandals matched with socks stole the show. They marked the strong contrasts Miu Miu loves to play with. Shoes bedazzled with diamonds and pearls matched with sporty white socks give an entirely new twist to what otherwise would be a straight-up girly-girly outfit. Miu Miu is all about exaggerating a certain aspect of an item and matching that with something the exact opposite to generate a bold look. That results in this interesting princess turns rebel vibe.
Princess on socks
The way Miu Miu leads the way in making the most of contrasting elements to create a strong look, is the way to combine socks with sandals and mules. They give you the possibility to add an edge to your shoe. Match sporty socks with feminine shoes. Or the other way around: match sporty sandals with glamorous or girly glittery socks. Your shoe is your playground.
The socks and sandals trend fashion girls all walk away with
The princess-sock-trend has made its way from the catwalk (of Miu Miu, Valentino, Prada and more) to the streets. It is a trend fashion girls are all walking away with. Seeing the trend on the streets shows how versatile and even practical it is. Suddenly those leather mules are wearable for months longer if you match them with grey knee-high socks. This trend opens up a whole lot of extra options and opportunities to be creative with your wardrobe and wear sandals, mules and pumps all year round.
