Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Wear a Matching Socks-and-Sandals Look That's Definitely DJ Tanner-Approved

Fanny packs. Overalls. Socks with sandals. No, it’s not your weird aunt’s packing list for her trip to Disney World. It’s what you’ll be wearing in 2014, if the fashion world has anything to say about it.

Just when we were coming to grips with the first two items on that list, our world was rocked by the sight of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, twin style setters and CFDA-nominated fashion designers, wearing a matching set of clunky leather sandals over white sports socks.

It’s no secret that many big designers showed Birkenstock-style sandals for spring (we’ve even given them a test run ourselves), but their arrival on the Olsens’ feet cements them as Officially Happening. And the addition of socks takes them to a whole new level of WTFashion.

Are you into this look? Is your dad? Are you concerned about it making a comeback or will you be rocking it this spring and summer? And finally, what do you think about twins rocking the same “Socks and ‘Stocks” look simultaneously? Tell us below.

It doesn’t matter which celebrity wears these shoes-the socks with sandals is an awful look.

This reminds me of when I was 10 and socks with Adidas slip-on athletic sandals was the coolest look on the playground! Ha ha! I think it looks cute on the Olsen twins, but I don’t think I’ll be trying this any time soon.

I don’t care who wears this look – it’s awful and they look like idiots.

IMHO, this look doesn’t look cute on anyone and I will NEVER wear socks and sandals.

Anna Wintour sinks Vogue…of course this would happen next.

Why do they insist on always looking homeless.

‘WTF Fashion’ is so apropos here. Hey guess what? Apparently two gabillionaires can dress like the down n’ out so I’m here at the hospital taking care of the sick and dying-i’ll throw on what’s left of my ten year old scrubs ‘bringing sexy back!’ How bout that
