We're seen the socks in sandals last season, but now since the Fall/Winter 2010/2011 season in fashion has already started, seems likes sandals are replaced by ankle-boots, yet still the socks remain. They come a bit different, but what's your take? How long will this trend remain? Until then, let's see all about it.

A major sensation was brought up last season in Spring/Summer 2010 collections when the major trend that took over the runway, was the socks into sandals. We sure loved it, and not long after that, the street style did too. Everywhere this summer we are going to see socks even if the sun is up all day. There's no true fashionista that hasn't already tried out this trend. It sure is a hate it or love it idea, but still we say to keep it for these seasons as long as you know how to wear it. Don't know yet? Well we are going to show you next all about it.
Not anyone can pull off a trend like this one, and seems that the socks into sandals or ankle-boots is here to stay for the next season too. For summer it may be useless but for fall it's not like that. We love it, but we hate people that don't know how to wear it.
A major problem that comes with this trend is that unfortunately, the short girls are disadvantaged by wearing socks into sandals or ankle-boots because it cuts a lot out of the overall look. Also the ones with a few pounds extra come in the same situation, because it adds a lot of attention on the feet. You need to be skinny and tall to wear them.
If you're a shortie, yet still you love this trend, there is a way to look good in them if you style them up right. Take a short casual dress and a pair of killer pumps plus those socks and you are good to go. Don't forget about the accessories of course. Try to not use anything oversized, like the dress, clutch, necklaces etc. Straighten your hair too, because that will make your outfit look fluid and make you look taller. Try to avoid wearing those ankle-socks with shorts, skirts, belts over dresses and choose an outfit with very less details.
