Socks and sandals are a dividing topic in fashion. It’s a tricky combination for even style mavens to put together. And trust me when I tell you, pulling off the look isn’t for everyone, or even most people.

If you google ‘ways to wear socks and sandals’ the word controversial is guaranteed to come up–it’s a trend that’s common on the runway, but in real life, it’s still very much a fashion faux pas. I, myself have only tried out the trend with heeled sandals and sheer shocks inspired by the Gucci runway seen below on Jenner Lopez, but I’ve never done it with flats like Kim Kardashian did yesterday.

 

 

Kim’s look is very Yeezy–all the athleisure, biker shorts, and slides with socks. To be clear, the Yeezy Season 6 slides are cushion-like and paired with thick hiking socks despite the California summer heat.

I prefer the contrast of statement socks and feminine heels–it looks more elegant, and it’s an easier way to translate that eclectic vibe without looking like you’re trying too hard.So if you aren’t convinced that socks and sandals are hideous, and are leaning towards the idea that maybe they’re just an edgier way to wear socks, we’ve narrowed down the 5 best ways to wear the trend.
