Yay or Nay: Socks with Sandals

One look I kinda sorta like is the *gasp* socks with sandals trend, shown on the Spring 2010 runways.





Why do I like it? Well for one thing, it makes high heeled sandals work well with shorts- and shorts this season are BIG. Socks can also dress down a mini skirt or dress. And they cover up the fact that your pedicure could use some work.


But I imagine the look is a bit too radical for some of you. If you want to try it out for yourself, here are some options...

J.Crew is way into this look, offering three-packs of anklets in all kinds of colors, $19.50 per pack.



Keep it neutral with these chic metallic socks, on sale right now for just $6.50 at J. Crew.



For a dressier look, try these fishnet anklets from J. Crew. A 3-pack of these will run you $24.50.



Or try these sheer socks worn scrunched down a la Burberry Prorsum, $12 from TopShop.


What do you think of this trend? Would you dare try it?
