Another day, another top model borrowing from your dad's highly questionable vacation mood board. Elsa Hosk is the latest It girl to dip her toes into one long-forbidden footwear trend, sandals and socks, but the 30-year-old made the dad-approved styling technique appear sensible and effortless. Elsa Hosk's fall outfit was an upscale take on a cozy classic, serving as another sartorial bid farewell to summer. Wearing Louis Vuitton straight-leg patchwork jeans with monogram detailing, an oversized cream-colored sweater, and a Fendi handbag, the Swedish beauty stayed snug and casual at the Venice Film Festival on Tues.

As small signs of fall begin to appear on trees and thermostats worldwide, fashion girls everywhere are slowly tucking away their staple tanks and strappy sandals and replacing them with cozy knitwear and... Birkenstocks and socks? That's right, Hosk isn't the only tastemaker to approve of the classic fashion faux pas. Off-duty street style queen Sophie Turner has repeatedly sported slides and socks over the past few weeks, clarifying on Twitter that she's not trying to make the controversial trend happen. "I’m not trying to make anything happen other than giving my feet some much needed TLC," the actor tweeted. Relatable. So there you have it — comfort is king this season, friends.
