October PEOPLE StyleWatchMirrorpix/Splash News Online

The topic of wearing socks with sandals is one that we’ve been hotly contesting since Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did it (and since the advent of “normcore”). Now we’re officially putting it to a vote with this shot of British TV personality Fearne Cotton. You’ll often see her wearing wacky outfits and she certainly is never one to shy away from a trend; in this case, she accessorized her footwear with an oversize coat and distressed denim.

There are multiple variations of this combo, from flat hippie-ish sandals to platform stacked heels (and the socks can vary too) — and we’ve seen this look everywhere from the most high-fashion runway to your wackiest uncle, but will we see it on you? Weigh in and let us know what you think of the fashion-forward trend. Are you loving it? Or are you hating it? Vote now and get the results in our October issue!

Nothing new this was popular in the 70’s in my group. We would wear cool looking socks with the platform strap sandals.

This is nothing new. It was very popular in the 30s and 40s. I remember seeing Lana Turner sport the look in one of the Andy Hardy movies. And it was just as ugly then as it is now, lol.
