No longer limited to the domain of @fashiondads, socks and sandals now coexist in chic combination on the runways and well-heeled street style stars alike. Conveniently, they’re also a perfect summer-to-fall style solution. “Pairing socks with your sandals is a great way to transition your summer gear into fall,” says Style & Editorial Director Ashley Munns. “It’s also a great way to add personality, flair and glamour to your look. You can choose to dress up your look with some sparkles or dress it down with sporty tube socks! I always carry a pair of cute socks in my handbag just in case I feel like changing up my outfit with a quick trip to the bathroom or ladies lounge.” Below, see how Munns styled the look three ways and get her tips for picking a winning match.
