It's that time of year when music babes come out to play, getting down with the desert and creative clouds (illicit or not) that surround.
Ethereal sleek meets Bohemian chic characterizes the recent "festival fashion" phenomenon taking society by storm each year. But a different aesthetic craze made Internet headlines this week:
A "guilt-free" physique unopposed to a little chubby charm, "Dadbods" are the supposedly up-and-coming preference among college girls across the country.
While the debate of desire rages on, it's not the only former faux pa now embraced by all.
Platform sandals! More importantly, platform sandals with socks.
"Socks with sandals" may conjure up images of '90s dads on family vacation or sports bros with Nike slip-ons à la grade school, but this is far from the case.
The elevated twist on an otherwise classic design brings a fantastically funky element into the mix. Donning said sandals with socks in what could be the next big thing, however, takes the carefully crafted funk even further.
Available in so many bold patterns and prints, sock possibilities are truly endless. Coupled with the sandals' heavy appearance, the two can bring an interesting contrast to any look this summer, as well as into the colder months.
With the additional fanny pack revival courtesy of what seemed like every sorority girl amidst spring break festivities, it may be safe to call this "Year of the Dad."
Perhaps what they've always said is true--father does know best.
