Socks and sandals 'terrific but tricky'
As yet more designers fling models down the catwalks clad in the stylistically-shocking sandals and socks combo, a US reporter has questioned if we can overcome our prejudices against the look.

Erin Weinger, writing for the Los Angeles Times, warned that as well as designers, celebrities have welcomed the bold new look with open arms but general consumers may face confusion when it comes to adopting it themselves.

She explained: "Just try pairing tights and sandals on your own. Patterned or solid? Black or coloured? Chunky shoes or stilettos?"

Ms Weinger consulted Eric Daman, the costume designer on Gossip Girl, for tips on this difficult new style.

They concluded that for the novice sandal and sock-wearer, it is important to avoid matching colours or designs unless they plump for the "trusty" black on black.

Recently, the newspaper suggested that women wishing to sport the current trend for open toes and tights begin with opaque hosiery and simple peep-toe pumps.
