Socks and sandals: Fashion disaster

They may have escaped the dubious honour of being named the number one style disaster in a recent poll by, but socks and sandals have climbed back to the top of the uncool charts after being named the biggest ever fashion faux pas in a survey by a high street retailer.

The combination of socks and sandals narrowly held off platforms for men in the poll.

Low slung trousers, velour tracksuits and harem pants made up the rest of the top five style faux pas, while crop tops, scrunchies, bum bags, shell suits and trucker hats all made it into the top 10.

"Socks and sandals are the epitome of British summer style gone wrong," a spokesperson for the retailer said.

Despite the combo appearing at the top of the list, celebrities such as David Beckham and Justin Bieber have been snapped wearing the shameful blend of socks and sandals in recent times.
