Socks and sandals look is back
It may be debatable whether the look was indeed ever in vogue, but after a recent fashion show it appears that the infamous socks and sandals combination could be de rigueur this summer.

At Resort fashion week, the leading designer Oscar de la Renta added a touch of chic to every outfit with the addition of strappy sandals and sheer cotton pop socks, according to Fashion for Lunch, a website for all fashionistas.

"A trend destined for the young at heart, this style statement brings light hearted fun to spring footwear," wrote Lindsey Anderson on the website.

"Forget the old image of your granddad wearing his bright whites over unsightly strap on sandals, because this season it's all about playful elegance."

The look was recently attributed to Brits taking the top spot as the world's worst-dressed holidaymakers.

In a poll of tourists by TripAdvisor even ranked Brits below the likes of Germans and Americans in the fashion stakes.
