So Wrong Is So Right

If the women on the streets outside of the spring 2014 collections are any indication, socks and sandals have officially made the leap onto fashionable feet. The pairing has evolved from old men donning knee-highs with their Tevas to the resurgence of socks and ’stocks (Birkenstocks) this summer and now as a practical and playful answer to dressing for the increasingly temperamental transition between seasons. The favourite pairing of a strappy heel with bunchy, workman-esque socks means you don’t have to sacrifice height or warmth in pursuit of style.
