Socks with sandals has long been a fashion faux pas, so it's a shock to see this "fashion don't" on runways and in fashion magazines. Practically speaking, it's an odd concept. After all, you wear sandals in warm weather to show off your pedicure and give your feet some air. Why would you negate those benefits by wearing socks? On the other hand, socks allow you to wear your favorite open-toed numbers in cold weather. It's your call, but you could always just slip your feet into a comfy pair of boots, instead.
