Sock it to me – Why we love the socks and sandals trend
Date Updated: 21/11/2022
At around about this time of year people find themselves asking should sandals be worn with socks? Are socks and sandals cool? For us the answer is a definite YES!
Although it’s as divisive as marmite, at Salt-Water HQ we love the socks and sandals trend with Salties and socks forming a staple part of our Autumn wardrobe. And we’re not the only ones to embrace the socks with sandals look. Spotted throughout the Spring Summer 2020 collections, designers and celebrities seem to agree. In fashion, the sock is now an important part of your outfit and with more people working from home the pairing of socks with sandals has become a popular lockdown styling trick. So it's totally cool to wear socks with sandals and now is the time to find the socks and sandals combination that works for you!

You could start by dipping your toe in the socks with sandals trend - cosying up your trusty Salt-Water Originals with a warm, knitted sock in a complimentary shade. Keep it tonal; a navy Salt-Water Classic looks gorgeous with a teal blue sock. Or go for total contrast like @carrozall pairing a Salt-Water Classic in navy with a terracotta sock.

Or elevate your favourite Salt-Waters with a statement sock; glitter, animal print or brights will stand out. Follow @heartzeena's pastel lead - a shiny pink Salt-Water Original with a spotty pink sock.
