We wore socks and sandals in 2017 already. But there are 2 major things different about 2018’s coolest fashion trend. And those 2 things made me fall in love with socks and sandals, too.
Yes, I wear socks and sandals too. Surely you know this already since you saw me wearing this fashion trends on Instagram and perhaps even on the streets of Paris and Ljubljana. Being on the same street at the same time, you must have spotted me. I mean it’s impossible to miss a chic girl in socks and sandals, isn’t it?
IS THIS THE MOST IMPORTANT FASHION TREND OF 2018?
While we can’t say the sock and sandals, fashion trend will write down as the most important fashion trend of 2018, as not everyone is actually brave enough to try it on. And those who have tried it will probably deny wearing this trends years after. This fashion trend is certainly the coolest. Mostly because it’s so ugly and spontaneous that every one chic secretly loves it. Well, I guess I shouldn’t write secretly, as you can spot socks under sandals in miles.
Ps. In case you still don’t know all the fashion trends for spring summer 18 fashion trends, go over here and get my fashion report with all fashion trends. And by all, I actually mean all.
IS WEARING SOCKS AND SANDALS CHIC?
The thing is that this fashion trend can go so wrong that it looks right in the end. You know what I mean? And in the end, you can just say, it’s in fashion, so what. Although the truth is that no matter how fashionable sock and sandals are ugly is still ugly. Unless you really know how to wear it. And by that, once for a change, I don’t mean the way you style your socks and sandals. But the way you make everyone believe you feel while walking around in socks and sandals.
Surely you will feel stupid, well at least I do. But if you make everyone believe you feel chic, everyone will see you so. So yes, this is why wearing socks and sandals is so chic today. You either pull off this fashion trend in the chicest way possible, or you don’t even leave the house.
HOW TO WEAR SOCKS AND SANDALS
So how to wear socks and sandals in 2018? And yes, it’s socks and sandals and not socks with sandals. Well, at least if you want to look chic and not crazy. You know what I mean.
Anyway, after trying different socks and sandals combinations, I realized there are actually only 2 ways to rock this fashion trend. Either do it like Burberry or do it as I did. Either way, you will look chic and fashionable. Well in my case even put together. Perhaps even too much for this edgy fashion trend.
Whatsoever, more about how to wear socks and sandals like at Burberry a bit later. First, as usual, a quick stop at my outfit. I know you have been dying for finding out where to get my beautiful sandals.

Starting with the socks, as I know you keen to know where I got this chic bronze socks. I actually got them from Calzedonia. But the good thing is that Gucci has a similar pair of socks (shop here). Only with the logo, which is regarding Spring Summer 2018 fashion trends win-win. Fashionable socks and a logo. Believe me, you need these. I just ordered my pair. I wish I had them when taking photos for this blog post. But I just discovered them when looking for the images and links for this post.
Also, check these bronze socks from Missoni (here). These come in the same shade as mine but without the lace.
You know my sandals already. Not only I have been wearing them on repeat since I got them (last time with the black polka dot tights over here). But you must have spotted them on Instagram as well as every fashionista has these sandals. By the way, are you stalking me on Instagram already? Well I guess it’s not too late, I mean Instagram is still a thing, and I’m still there, posting my daily looks every day. Follow me @veronikalipar. You can also follow me on Facebook if you prefer that platform. Although with the current situation I really doubt you are still FB fan.
Anyway, back to these stunning sandals I’m wearing. These rose gold, bronze metallic sandals are from Stuart Weitzman, and you can shop them here. These nudist strappy sandals are a must!
This pink tweed skirt, well actually a skort as you have probably already noticed, I mean I wouldn’t sit on that wall like this if this wasn’t a skort. Whatsoever this pink tweed skort is from Storets. You can shop it here. Ps. You must also see how I styled this tweedy skort with over the knee boots too. Check here.
Yes, finally! The last time you will see me wearing my Weekend Maxmara coat this spring. The temperatures are finally rising, and I’m taking this coat to the dry cleaners today before hang it in my dressing room until autumn. Nevertheless, regardless the temperatures, well actually because of them, this is the time to think about coats instead of bikinis. No idea what I’m writing about? In short, now is the time for shopping a new coat. Especially if you want a quality, classic coat like the one I’m wearing. All the classic coats, Maxmara coats included, are on sale now. Read this is the only time of the year when you can shop luxury coats on a budget. Shop mine here.
SOCKS AND SANDALS FASHION 2018
Finally, as promised, more about how to wear socks and sandals to look fashionable and chic in 2018. As said, there are only two fashionable legit ways to pull off this fashion trend. First, like I did, and second like Burberry.
I’m starting with the way I’m wearing socks and sandals in the photos here, as this is the basic, not to say the safest and the most sophisticated way to wear socks and sandals.
#1 GO MONOCHROME AND MINIMALISTIC
First, get simple, minimalistic sandals. Best Stuart Weitzman nudist sandals as they have really thin straps. But won’t all the sudden unglue as you walk. I’m pretty sure you know what I mean. I still remember how my mother had to use the Loctite to glue back the straps to my sandals when I was little.
Then find socks that match the colour of your sandals. It doesn’t really have to be the same shade, but it’s better if the colours complement each other. As you can see my favourite combination is bronze with metallic rose gold sandals (high-shine glass rose gold), which I’m pretty sure you already noticed.
Sure you could go colour clashing with the minimalistic strappy sandals, but this is so 2017. Yes, that’s that one thing that is so different from the way we wore socks and sandals in 2017.
Anyway, be sure to check the gallery below to find more socks and sandals combinations.
And no, this post was not sponsored by Stuart Weitzman, even though I keep mention this brand. I simply love the Nudistsong sandal.
#2 GO FOR A PRINT, BOLD AND CHUNKY
Once you become a savvy socks and sandals girl, it’s time to update your look and bring this fashion trend to a whole new level. Ps. I’m not wearing this trend yet as I’m still waiting for my chunky sandals to come. But I will share my chunky, bold sock and sandals look on my Instagram and Facebook as soon as I get them. So be sure to follow me there. You really shouldn’t miss this.
I like to call this way of wearing socks and sandals the Burberry way, as Burberry sent its models wearing plaid socks and chunky sandals to the Spring Summer 2018 runway. The secret here is however not only in the socks and sandals but in the clothes too.
There is only one way to make sure this look will actually work for you. And that is to wear it with a midi skirt. Wear it with a mini, and you will look like you just escaped from the 80s. Not that there is a lot wrong with this, the 80s are in fashion after all, but the truth is that you most likely won’t feel confident dressed like this. Read you will look like a cheap, sloppy gal who has no idea what fashion is. The line between chic and far from fashionable is truly thin here.
MORE SOCKS AND SANDALS AND MORE FASHION TRENDS
So this is it. The way how to wear socks and sandals and look fashionable. Not to say chic and just fabulous. By the way, what do you think about this fashion trend? Will you give it a try? Will you do it like Burberry or me? Let me know in the comments below. I’m really curious. Oh, and don’t forget to add that Gucci socks and Stuart Weitzman sandals to your shopping list. Those two are a must-have. Just like these shoes and that bag here …
