Toeless Socks: Too Trendy For The Office?

I've picked up on an interesting little trend lately: toeless socks worn with strappy wedge sandals. I guess it's just not warm enough to go bare-legged, but the city gals are dying to shed their tights and show off that first-of-the-season pedicure — a clever way of transitioning that school girlish knee-sock-and-stacked-heel-pump look from fall into the warmer weather. 

I am a fan of the trend — I think it looks cute for a Saturday window shopping stroll — but I would skip this look at the office; it's a little too casual. I've seen a few girls sporting this open toe style with their work attire and something about it irks me a bit — too many little piggies on the loose in an office environment seems unprofessional to me. 

We want to know how you feel about the trend: Will you be purshasing these shimmer-y, striped, legwarmer-ish socks by Free People, or do you believe socks should only belong with closed toe shoes? Is it a workweek look or weekend-only wear? Let loose in our comments section below.
