Can men get away with socks and sandals?
While pairing socks with sandals is popular among fashionable women can the trend be embraced by men?

David Graham, fashion editor at the Toronto Star, that while high-end designers such as Prada and Yves Saint Laurent have sent their male models down the runway in sandal and socks combinations, the average bloke has to work hard to avoid looking like a tourist.

For those brave enough to attempt the look, wardrobe stylist Georgia Groom of Toronto adds: "Make sure your sandals are fantastic," adds the publication.

The news provider also warns would-be fashionistas that many women are not fans of the look, with Ms Groom saying: "I'm not letting my boyfriend anywhere near it."

Meanwhile, entertainment news site Monsters and Critics recently reported that Hollywood heartthrob Jake Gyllenhaal has been spotted wearing socks and sandals while accompanying his actress girlfriend Reese Witherspoon to a yoga class.
