Would You Wear Jessica Alba's Kneesocks over Tights?

Jessica Alba has firmly established herself as a well-dressed star — from glam turns on the red carpet to casual chic in her off-time, the actress usually nails it. But her outfit at a Natural History Museum party this weekend (with boyfriend Cash Warren) left us more than a little confused. Her hair and makeup look great, and her Juicy Couture coat is adorable. . .but taupe knee-socks over black tights with mary-jane heels? We’re all for layering, but this seems a little off-base to us. We want to know what you think! Tell us: What do you think of Jessica’s layered hosiery? Would you ever wear kneesocks over tights?

I would totally wear this style. Jessica can pull off any look while still making it young and cute but yet sophisticated. Has she ever had a bad outfit?

usually she can pull anything off…but definitely not this. what was she thinking? she wanted to combine nerdy and stylish…

Caitlin on

no that looks bad. the rest of her outfit’s really cute though.

She is beautiful, yet those socks look tacky.

I like layering, but not like that. You can layer a fishnet stocking and a knee high and it looks good and more suttle. Like a nice red or neon green fishnet witha black knee high is hot.

I wear white scrunched socks over black opaque tights all the time! I get complimented on it quite a bit too. I’m glad that she is sporting a similar look! It drives men nuts for some reason. At least that’s what I’ve found to be true

knee socks are cool, I love to wear them when i go clubbing with my boyfriend. I see lots of other girls wearing them too when i go out. They look so cute with a simple skirt or even a cute pair of shorts. they will never go out of style.
there are some really cute ones too.

I like the idea of it, personally i prefer wearing black opaque tights, with a pair of colourful fishnet tights on top, but i am open to new styles.
