Would You Wear Socks With Sandals?

Barnsley, Dome/Pacific Coast News

Known for her bold fashion choices, Chloe Sevigny definitely didn’t disappoint at California’s Coachella Music Festival last week. Along with her floral dress and black T-shirt, the Big Love star paired her beige sandals with black socks. It’s a great way to cover pedicure-needy feet and even prevent blisters, but we think the beauty of sandals is breaking free from winter and embracing the open toes of spring. But we know that Chloe is a trendsetter, so we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear socks with sandals or heels? –Archana Ram

NEVER!! Sandals are meant to show off your feet, not show off your dads black socks!

I normally like Chloe’s quirky style, but this outfit is from the 90’s. Socks and sandals are a sure fashion faux pas!

What are you, nuts?! I barely think ANYTHING Chloe Sevigny wears is nice…she always looks like she’s trying too hard to be edgy lol

I am from an island. We created sandals. You NEVER wear socks with them! The point is for your feet to feel free and comfortable. So you could easily take them off and jump in the ocean. When we were growing up, my friends and I would always make fun of tourists who wore socks with their sandals.

Yes, I would. Only if I morphed into an 80 year old man and could wear them with my Bermuda shorts.

N-E-V-E-R-I-N-A-M-I-L-L-I-O-N-Y-E-A-R-S!!! If Chloe Sevigny is wearing something, you can be pretty sure that I won’t be wearing it. I think she has one of the worst fashion sense in Hollywood, even North America… Or the world. Closely followed by another Supposed “fashion icon”: Mischa Barton.

Almost every time I see that girl, I wonder what she’s thinking. This look takes the cake though. She’s such a talented actress, why does she want to look bad?

Just like how running shoes do not go well without socks, sandals do not go well with socks.

ok guys tell me if ur in a desert at temp hovering around 45-50 deg celsius! and sand gets in ur feet and cracks the heels what would you do?
in desert, sandals and socks is the way to go else you need expensive padicure each time u venture in the desert!

I wear white socks with sandals because sandals destroy my bare feet– they get filthy in no time, they develop unbelievable callouses, and they get blisters front and back if I walk for any distance or time.

Besides, I’m 67 years old and I’ll wear whatever the h**l I want, so you people on the “Fashion Police” can kiss my beautiful foot, which is beautiful only because I wear a sock on it when I wear sandals.
