If you think of your most worn outfit in the past few years, chances are it consists of leggings and a sweatshirt. And while you’ve probably topped off your comfy fit with casual sneakers or comfy Ugg boots, Hailey Bieber just presented us with an arguably better — albeit controversial — finishing touch.
On February 15, the model stepped out wearing the unofficial pandemic uniform in grey, aka a groutfit. And while her super soft leggings, a Jennifer Garner-approved pair that’s on sale at Alo Yoga right now, deserve a moment of recognition, her shoes are what really caught our eye. It’s no secret that countless celebrities love Birkenstock sandals for their comfort and practical slip-on style, but Bieber’s Balenciaga version strays from the typical cork shoe material and dives into uncharted territory: the fabric of the plush coat. Not to mention that she wore her sandals with socks.
Not only is fuzzy material trendy, but it’s ideal for those transitional weeks between winter and spring that are often hard to dress up. And while pairing socks with sandals can usually cause some ridicule, Bieber’s endorsement forces us to rethink our stance on the “uncool” look. Plus, fellow model Kendall Jenner also recently sported the controversial combo, so these stylish stars might be onto something.
