Wearing socks with sandals is usually listed near the top of any fashion don't list. Last fall, everyone welcomed tights with open toes. But it looks like spring's headed in an even less practical direction pairing socks, whether ankle or knee high, with your favorite sandals. You can do it with platform wedges a la Topshop or Burberry, flats like Marni, shoe booties like Wang and Charles Anastase or studded party shoes like Louise Goldin. Marc's fall 06 show was the last time we even considered trying this (though alas, we aren't Karen Elson), but we're still not sure about its resurgence for spring.
