Socks and sandals 'a light-hearted look'
Wearing socks with sandals can create a young and light-hearted look but it is certainly not for everyone, a commentator has warned.

A blogger known as Poster Girl made her comments through online resource Fashion Trend, noting that not everyone is ready for the socks and sandals combo but those who are can wear bright, bold colours and be confident they look hot.

However, she suggested that to avoid looking like overgrown schoolgirls, women tone down the rest of their outfits and avoid wearing pleated skirts or Peter Pan collars.

Furthermore, Poster Girl added, choice of shoe is important as it is hard to imagine delicate, strappy stilettos working with this look.

"I'd stick to heftier shoes such as wedges, stacked heels, or sculptural heels," she urged, adding: "If you're brave enough to try this trend, remember it's all about having fun and showing off that legwear and footwear."

Recently, Erin Weinger, writing for the Los Angeles Times, praised the socks and sandals style but warned that it could be difficult for people to successfully pair suitable legwear with their strappy shoes.

She recommended the fashion conscious make sure they do not wear socks in the same colour as their footwear.
