According to fashion website WhoWhatWear.com, “tourist sandals” were a noticeable presence in S/S 19 collections during Fashion Week in late 2018. Designers like Collina Strada, Dries Van Noten and more finished off their high fashion looks with the familiar chunky, strappy, sporty sandals… and yes, socks included.
As with many fashion trends, what takes off during Fashion Week eventually makes its way into the mainstream fashion world in some form, and socks and sandals has proved no different. The tourist sandal and sock combo can now be seen on the Instagram pages of many fashion “influencers” and luxury fashion brands like Chanel.
What do you think? Will you be breaking out the old socks and sandals look?
