Would You Wear Socks with Pool Slide Sandals Like Rita Ora?

A number of celebrities are starting to embrace the socks-and-sandals trend. While it was considered a faux pas in the past, it’s now quickly becoming a fashion statement. However, not everyone can pull it off the way Rihanna and Sarah Jessica Parker can.

A case in point is British singer Rita Ora, who was spotted sporting the latest fashion craze at LAX on March 10. She wore a DKNY printed tunic with matching terry and stretch-silk shorts (available at Net-A-Porter) and layered with a Fausto Puglisi bomber jacket featuring geometric print and leather sleeves with gold-tone and crystal embroidery. In my opinion, the combination just doesn’t work. Moreover, the striped socks didn’t do the ensemble any good.

Rita Ora clearly opted for a relaxing ensemble for her long flight, and she took the opportunity to try the new socks-and-sandals trend. However, instead of sticking to plain socks and chic heels like other celebrities have done in the past, she chose a pair of striped red-toed socks and rubber pool-slide sandals. White socks could’ve worked better with the sandals, just like in the adidas Originals #socksnslides campaign last year.
