Everyone has an opinion on the age-old socks-with-sandals debate, but Bella Hadid just proffered another hosiery discussion: are knee-high tube socks cool? Well, if Hadid’s track record is any indication, she may have just single-handedly brought back the humble accessory. Photographed in New York City with her boyfriend Marc Kalman, Hadid wore them with itty-bitty shorts, an oversize tee, and Adidas Samba sneakers.
Knee-high socks have gone in and out of style throughout fashion history, notably in the 1920s, when women’s hemlines shortened for the first time, as well as the ’60s when icons like Twiggy paired them with mod mini skirts. Oh, and let’s not forget the impact Cher Horowitz’s outfits had on ’90s style. Scroll down to see how Bella Hadid styled knee-high tube socks in 2022 and shop the trend.
