Suddenly cool: Socks with sandals

She added one last piece of advice. “You'll definitely want to show some skin and sex this trend up to avoid feeling frumpy."

Several well-known stars have been seen taking the plunge, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Bruce Willis.
