socks-and-sandals.jpgNow that festival season is upon us, normal rules of style are turned on their heads and we're suddenly surrounded by some of the styles that fashion forbids.

However, events on the fringes of style can often influence the mainstream, and I've noticed that one big festival chic look - sandals worn over short, white socks - seems to be crossing over. The poster girl for the look is, of course, Florence Welch, but Fearne Cotton and Chloe Sevigny are also fans of the geek-chic look.

What do you think about this development: would you ever wear socks with sandals?
