I think it would look better with knee high sock and heels.

1. What makes the trend inherently juvenile?
2. What makes you think all fashion trends are the result of some man's sexual fetish?

It's an accessory, a mere mixing of two already well accepted articles of clothing. How could socks and heels possibly inspire dread and horror?

No! Unless the socks are not visible because the heels cover them completely.

I agree that too many time looks have been subjected to man fetish, uncomfy stilettos and such. And women are often conditioned to look adolescent by media in much less subtle ways, sadly. How can just a nice sock be a result of this, it's just a sock.
Anyway it's not my case, i like both this and the sockless look.
Yes now it's more mainstream to hide the socks, but, for chrissake, be open to a little more creativity and variation. There's so much comformism and lack of personality in fashion, in general.

Not this outfit in particular (this pois/polka dotted dress ), but I also like the knee high style in general. Maybe knee socks are warmer and more for spring/fall, though.
