If theres one trend I'll be trying soon is the socks and sandels but be careful of looking like a 5 yr old. The socks should be plain for the day (so no frills!) but add abit of sparkle for the evening. I'll be wearing mine with a short dress with alot of texture and add a tough belt with it so it isn't too girlie and pretty.
Check out Burberry and Dior to see how to make it work.
