Socks and sandals - the next big trend?
The age-old fashion no-no of socks and sandals has become a fashion go-go and is to be seen on the UK's streets and catwalks alike this spring and summer, a fashion website has claimed.

Marni's spring runway included flat sandals teamed with socks but it worked surprisingly well, according to trend-following site FashionForLunch.com.

"It is only natural to feel sceptical - to say the least - about this unlikely trend, but some of the best spring collections received praise for including this much-discussed combination," the website claimed.

It gave the example of Burberry, which teamed chunky platform sandals with ribbed grey socks, resulting in a super-chic look, especially when worn with the brand's covetable trench-dresses.

Chloe Sevigny is one celeb that has been spotted sporting the trend of late.

The actress, fashion designer and former model was papped on one occasion wearing black socks with flat grey sandals and another sporting white ankle socks with black peep-toes.
