Socks with sandals are on trend for spring/summer 2010


Pull ‘em up to your knees; or push ‘em down around your ankles. It’s all about socks appeal this spring. Whichever way you wear them – tight and neat, or as wrinkled as the sad, saggy scraps of yarn that once drooped around Ena Sharples’ tired old legs – a pair of socks is the instant way to update your foot-looks.

Socks-and-shoes; it might sound a bit too uncool-for-school, but it’s a catwalk trend that has been doing a slow burn for several seasons.

Ankle-socks and knee-highs have long been a favourite look to accessorise the flat lace-ups, platforms, wedges and stacked heels on the catwalk for Milan’s Consuelo Castiglione of Marni, and London’s Margaret Howell, as well as the high-priestesses of style, Miuccia Prada and Rei Kawakubo. Burberry’s Christopher Bailey clearly regards socks as the new tights, while John Galliano made glitter-ball socks the finishing touch to his strappy 40s-style wedges and lacy little wisps of dresses in Christian Dior’s spring/summer 2010 runway parade.
