When it comes to fashion, it's fair to say that almost anything goes. This season alone, we’ve seen catwalk shows inspired by car washes, while the street style set have been hitting the pavement in outfits consisting of skirts layered over dresses, layered over vests, layered over roll necks.
However, there is one long-held cardinal sin of the fashion world which, designers nor members of the fash pack dare to try. That is the pairing of socks and sandals.
Heralded as the biggest fashion faux pas a person can commit, the old sock 'n sandal combo has become the brunt of many jokes and the punchline to countless skits on men’s style.
So, we are left to wonder, how Kylie Jenner has somehow managed to make them look infinitely cooler than ever before.
Taking to her Instagram account over the weekend, the 18-year-old millionaire teen and star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians shared a video of her licking her lips, baring her gold teeth, flashing her belly, and generally being way more badass than the rest of us combined.
However, as the camera pans out, we catch a glimpse of her full look, and low and behold — she’s rocking pool sliders with white socks.
Don't believe us? Here's the proof...
As a self-confessed high heel addict, we never thought we’d see the day that she’d sport this kind of attire, let alone with fresh sports socks. To be fair, it’s a pretty good way of beating the between-season chill we’ve been experiencing for the last couple of weeks. Rocking them with ripped jeans and a retro-inspired tee, Kylie’s look certainly makes a statement – it’s just unlike anything we’ve seen her in before.
Sorry, KJ, we reckon we’ll be admiring this trend from a far – but kudos for taking the sartorial risk all the same…
