I'm on elle.com viewing some runway shows and come across a look I've been seeing a lot of: Sandals with socks. I love this look on the models and am dying to try it myself, but would it work in the real world? It's a completely different world on those runways, and not many people could even pull off those designs deemed "ready-to-wear". By definition ready-to-wear indicates that you can walk right off the runway and onto the streets in that piece. The below is from Marc by Marc Jacobs' spring 2007 ready-to-wear collection showing the girls with an open toe sandal accompanied with an ankle sock. I purchased some ankle socks last fall with every intention to sport this look, but every time I choose the perfect outfit to wear my foot accessory with guess what... I chicken out. This look kind of defeats the purpose of what each item is meant for. You know, socks are meant to warm the foot while a sandal lets the foot breathe. Having said that, I'm just not sure people will get it, but I do adore the look and will eventually muster up the courage to wear it. Since when do I care what people think! Right?
