Fanny packs. Overalls. Socks with sandals. No, it’s not your weird aunt’s packing list for her trip to Disney World. It’s what you’ll be wearing in 2014, if the fashion world has anything to say about it.

Just when we were coming to grips with the first two items on that list, our world was rocked by the sight of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, twin style setters and CFDA-nominated fashion designers, wearing a matching set of clunky leather sandals over white sports socks.

It’s no secret that many big designers showed Birkenstock-style sandals for spring (we’ve even given them a test run ourselves), but their arrival on the Olsens’ feet cements them as Officially Happening. And the addition of socks takes them to a whole new level of WTFashion.

Are you into this look? Is your dad? Are you concerned about it making a comeback or will you be rocking it this spring and summer? And finally, what do you think about twins rocking the same “Socks and ‘Stocks” look simultaneously? Tell us below.
