Are socks with sandals on trend?

Vivienne Westwood models quirky socks and sandals at Harpers Bazaar event last week.

There is one fashion crime which almost always tops the list of sartorial misdemeanours, however, things may be about to change.

Fashionista Vivienne Westwood was spotted at the Harpers Bazaar Woman of the Year Awards wearing socks and sandals; a look normally reserved for middle aged men abroad.

However, when teamed with the rest of Vivienne's quirky ensemble, her legwear managed to look stylish, and adding some stylish patterned socks to an ensemble is one way to ensure you stay warm!

And it's not just Westwood who has been spotted rocking socks and sandals, with the footwear making an appearance on the catwalk at Bottega Veneta and Prada.

If you fancy stealing Viv's style for yourself then there are some golden rules to follow. Firstly, the sandals must be chunky and very on trend so that people know you are making a style statement rather than a faux pas.

Secondly, not just any old socks will do. Knee high socks are a good choice, as are delicate lacy ankle socks and retro argyle socks.
