We've always been slightly prejudiced about socks and sandals in the past; we'll own up to that. Certain closed-toe chunky heels with a little anklet? We're down. But, we've passed on anything our dads might be caught wearing while mowing the lawn...until now. Thanks to certain fashion daredevils, like the Olsens
, the world is starting to embrace all versions of the sock-and-sandal combo, including the sock-and-slide, the sock-and-flat, and even the sock-and-'stock. Before you completely freak at the mere thought of introducing this into your repertoire, just bear with us.
Think about it. You’ve actually already embraced this trend halfway after hopping on board the frumpy footwear
train, so all that’s left to do is add the socks. And, who doesn’t like socks? They’re comfy, they keep your feet warm on cool spring days (or when the office AC is blasting), and the right pair can add pattern and color to your look in a way that lets you dip a toe into the print-mixing trend. See? You can
do it. Ahead, we've assembled 10 inspired pairings to give you (okay, and us) that extra little nudge to test the look in real life. Take a deep breath, and knock your socks
