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
? 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
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.
