Gigi Hadid is no stranger to cozy, wearable looks—and this week she made a strong case for the divisive combo of socks with sandals. Like countless college students before them, everyone from Rihanna to Kendall Jenner has embraced the former faux pas in recent years. Skipping the traditional crew socks and leggings pairing, Hadid tried something a little more exciting by opting for knee-length socks with Bermuda sweat shorts.

On March 21, Hadid was spotted on the streets of New York wearing a luxe yet relaxed ’fit: a tan polo sweatshirt, matching Bermuda shorts, an off-white bag, and an oatmeal beanie. The centerpiece, though, was the pairing of black Birkenstock x Valentino sandals and ribbed socks, which kept her legs toasty without the need for actual pants.

Socks and sandals aren’t exactly a new trend, but by supersizing her socks and opting for long shorts (also a favorite of sister Bella), the model pushed the styling in a new direction. Each piece worked together, radiating laid-back charm with a slight edge—and offering just the right amount of coverage for spring.
