Eight Killer Sock-and-Sandal Combos

The jury is still out as to whether Bottega Veneta has made it okay for guys to wear socks with sandals, but ladies already have free sartorial reign — for proof, just look at any recent issue of any major fashion magazine, at the feet passing you by on a Saturday night on the LES, or to the fall collections from Marc Jacobs, Prada, Rodarte, and countless others. Yup, we’re head over (cutely socked) heels for this nerdy-chic trend. Click ahead to see some of our favorite variations.

The 4th of July is just a few days away, and for many of us, that means an extended weekend at the beach.

Here are some chic cover-up options to keep you looking good during a fun-filled day in the sun.

Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2011 Collection

Roksanda Ilincic’s Resort 2011 collection impressed me with the use of colors in garments. Neon yellow combined with midnight blue or charcoal black mixed with light beige – these daring combinations looked very unusual and very pretty.

The range included mostly dresses, cocktail and evening ones, all with rich draping and flowing silhouettes. However, one dress was a bit different, and sloppy. No shape, no distinct color, nothing really special. It didn’t seem to belong to the collection at all.

What else looked interesting to me is that the model had dark hair roots that could be dyed if Roksanda Ilincic wanted it. The fact they were left grown says it is going to be something like a hair style trend because it is not the first time I see this in Resort 2011 collections. See Versace girl with dark roots.
