How to Rock the Socks and Sandals, the Most Controversial Fashion Statement

Once a trend meant only for children or elderly who just need comfort, today socks and sandals can be worn by anyone if you know what you’re doing. But in reality, does anyone ever know what they are doing? The answer, I’m afraid, is no. We shall do what humans always do and pretend that we have a clue, though. The fashion statement that has had many people question whether we will ever understand life is perfectly acceptable.  Here is your guide to rocking socks with sandals. Read on for several necessary tips, cool kids. 

Pro Tip #1: Do not get thong-toed sandals.

Instead, grab a pair of slip-ons like these Birkenstocks that will not make your socks crease in between your toes. These Birks are unbelievably comfortable and neutral-toned, making it simple to wear socks that are patterned or peculiar. Shop all of our Birkenstocks here.

Pro Tip #2: Sandals with straps can be cool with socks.

Teva Original Universal Sandals [$50.00]

The key to sporting the universal strapping system that these Teva sandals have with socks is to make sure that the rest of your outfit is also styled correctly. If not, this could come across as extremely elementary. Yikes. Harsh? My bad. So, my thoughts: either wear athletic, athleisure, or completely lazy clothing with the S&S trend.

Pro Tip #3: Crew Socks. Crew Socks. Crew Socks.

Wearing ankle socks is fine, really, but the thing about socks and sandals is that it must be a big gesture. Ankle socks, unfortunately, are an average everyday sock. Crew socks, on the other hand, demand a bit more attention. If you are going to rock the S&S, you have to leave nothing behind. Finding a cool crew sock is rather easy in 2017, because we Millennials like our calves, I guess.

Here are a few of my favorite crew socks from the House:

Vans Palm Tree Crew Socks [$6.95]

Women’s Stance Bomb Diggity Classic Crew Socks [$12.00]

Women’s Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Crew: Charley Harper Natl Pk Pstr Btrfly Socks [$19.95]


Stance John John Florence Navigator Socks [$16.00]

Three simple rules to follow, and you’ll be on your way. So, go ahead and be comfortable and stylish. No one will judge (I think). Embrace socks with sandals.

Be kind and have a positive mind.
