I don’t know about you, but I love it when fashion completely turns everyone’s expectations over and, in the words of Tim Gunn, “make it work”.

I am sure that every girl have been warned at any given point in their lives to never wear open-toed sandals with stockings. It was an image permeated by unfortunate matrons and clueless office ladies, and there are hardly any greater faux pas than that. On the runways of A/W09 and S/S10 however, we see many designers challenging this view by pairing strappy sandals with thick ankle length socks, in turn giving these summery shoes a distinctive touch of winter.

Galliano added a pop of colour with bright pink socks, while Burberry opted to keep the colours within the same family.

I also love how Versace paired slouchy socks and stompy shoes with a feminine dress in their pre-fall 2010 collection

Miu Miu however, literally knocked the socks off me (you know I can’t resist the puns) with their embellished socks. We are like magpies and love shiny objects as can be seen from our embellished lace tights DIY

I am so going to find a pair of plain socks and sew all manners of shiny nonsense on them.
