EmRata and Kaia Gerber Just Sparked the 2020 Way to Style Jeans and Leggings

Some trends are impossible to ignore—like, say, the new wave of statement sleeve dresses—while others simply whisper “I know what I’m doing.” The latest look that Emily Ratajkowski, Kaia Gerber, and Chanel are championing definitely falls into the latter category. It’s a subtle styling trick that’s almost missable, but when you catch a glimpse of a cool girl wearing it, you can’t help but want to copy it ASAP. 

The trend: Styling crew socks over skinny jeans, leggings, and tights. First, Gerber styled her gray crew socks over black leggings for a hike. Then, Emily Ratajkowski wore her white crew socks over skinny jeans in NYC. And to complete the trifecta, creative director Virginie Viard styled white socks over white tights at the Chanel Haute Couture show this week. So there you have it, folks: stop hiding your socks under your jeans. Stop buying no-shows. Start wearing your socks over your pant of choice and get ready to be copied left and right. Scroll down to see the simple styling trick in action.
