One trend I just can’t seem to get into is wearing sandals in the wintertime. Seeing this fashion statement in style magazines, on tv and down my social timelines let’s me know that there are plenty of women out here braving flu season by wearing their toes out. If I could get passed the thought of my toes freezing off due to the lower temps then maybe. I remember back in my “we be clubbin’ days inwardly laughing at some of the females standing in line wearing their tiny freakum dresses and heeled sandals - shivering. But you know what, I shouldn’t knock it until I try it, right? And maybe one day I will.
A stylish remedy for continuing to wear your summer sandals in the cooler months is super easy. Just add a fun pair of socks (or tights). Think about how cute your NYE party outfit would look if you paired it with a cutesy pair of short or knee-length socks. Not only do you get to keep your feet warm, your outfit can still be dope. For your styling pleasure, check out a few looks where I’ve incorporated socks into my look >>> HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE.
The older I get the more my style evolves. I was once the girl who would never be caught wearing anything pink or shiny and definitely not strutting around in a pair of heels. Now here I am in a shiny sequin duster with a cute pair of pink and green heels on. I wonder what my younger self would say to my slightly older self after seeing me in today’s look.
Btw, I shot this look when the temp’s were warmer. What are you thoughts on sandals in the winter months?
