Whether you're rocking a sandal from Valentino's 'rockstud' collection OR if you're in double-buckle Birkenstocks, one thing is for sure— don't be afraid to pair your open-toe shoes with a sock.
Birkenstocks With Socks
So, as you may have already guessed, we're aiming to pair our Birkenstocks with socks. (say that 3x times fast)
Birkenstock's cork sandals made a comeback in 2018 and they are still luring in 2019's fashion freaks. Even more unexpected than the Birkenstock's return is the fact that trendsetters are pairing theirs with socks.
Personally, we're pairing ours with either straight/skinny denim and a vintage tee blazer combo or with a black pantsuit vibe. (crazy we know). And for the socks? With Birkenstocks, and flats in general, you can choose a thicker sock than you would with a heel.
Shop It To Me, the designer mega-sale shopping site and App, has both Birkenstocks and socks exactly like the ones below, so we highly suggest signing up for free to see what all the fashion fuss is about.
#Birkenstockswithsocks is actually a hashtag and we're not pretending to not love this trend. What's better than an acceptably chic sock and sandal combo? We'll wait.
Fancy Flat Sandals With Socks
Like we said, we're really vibing on this trend right now, even if we get stares.
Heck, we're even wearing socks with our absolute dressiest sandals, but, we're using a much thinner, more expensive sock. The cheap-o ones won't really cut it here.
We're wearing these Suecomma Bonnie embellished slides with soft thin black ankle socks and a simple, but possibly edgy, black dress.
Socks With Heels
We recently wrote a piece on The Best Open Toe Booties of 2019 and it's safe to assume that fashion socks can be worn with each bootie mentioned.
Black is universally chic, so a black sock is never a bad idea, and if you want to spice things up a bit you could do a bright colored sock with these Alexander Wang strappy sandals.
Another great sock and sandal combo are Stuart Weitzman's nudistsong sandals with Wolford's bright green fishnet socks. Wolford never ceases to amaze us with its fashion-forwardness.
These bright socks also work wonders with a plain white sneaker.
About Those Valentinos
Unless you've been living under a rock (no pun intended) then you know about Valentino's coveted Rockstud collection.
Because these sandals speak for themselves, we would pair ours with a solid colored or lace sock. Btw, these ivory colored Rockstuds may just be our favorite pair yet. (they're truly addictive and women collect them like candy)
Natori's black lace shortie socks are a versatile pair that belong on a foot with any of the shoes mentioned here— especially the Rockstuds.
That's What We're SOCKING About Baby!
Logomania is still in full effect and we're not haters. We're in the Prada fan club and thankfully we found these logo socks on sale via Shop It To Me.
Fun fact about all of these socks is that they can be worn with sneakers as well. Didn't have time to get a pedicure? Sandals and socks it is. All of your favorite celebrities are already doing it! #winning
