Socks with sandals, once the biggest fashion faux pas, has now been reclaimed by fashion lovers all over the world.

Some fashion followers seem to be having trouble embracing the trend, threatening to stop following Anthony if he commits one more heinous act:
But as it turns out, Anthony's not the only one mixing milk and meat. Carven embraced socks with sandals in almost every look for Spring 2014. Here are a few images:
I have a hunch that the trend sprung from the popularization of socks with sneakers and shorts or skirts, and the sandals just took it to the next level. My other favorite blog, Durimel, has included the look in a few of their recent posts:
Christopher Shannon's 2014 Spring Summer Mens Runway was also not short of the sock and sandals combo:
Blogger Amanda Shadforth of Oracle Fox also jumped on board, stating, "Whether you like it or not socks and sandals are infiltrating the fashion community like army ants on a donut. Always a fan of donuts and not so much socks and sandals I’ve been giving this look a nudge and finding something addictively satisfying about the comfort level of this unconventional couple. We all know however that some of the best romances in the world are made up of unconventional couples.. it might be time to take note .."
So what do you think? Staying away or going all out? Let us know if the comments.
