Everyone has an opinion on the age-old socks-vs.-sandals debate, but Bella Hadid just offered another hosiery discussion: Are knee-high tube socks cool?

Knee-high socks have become fashionable throughout fashion history, notably in the 1920s when women’s hems were first shortened, and in the 1960s 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.
