Can we wear socks with heels?

I came across this picture of Burberry strappy heel with sock and didn't really know what to think of this look. It is not my intention to judge what is fashionable and acceptable because almost anything is acceptable nowadays, however I just can't help but think socks and strappy heels look odd together. Would you wear socks and heels together like this? It sounds great in theory for a photo shoot, to me anyway. Is it savvy or sloppy?

  8. I would think it would be ridiculous in the summer, but for fall I think it could work!

  9. It would be so hard to pull off! But I agree with Emz, maybe in the fall it would work

  13. I'm with Lily G. I can do opaque tights with sandals. I just can't do them with socks.
