Iggy Azalea Feels Confident About Socks and Sandals: See Her Polarizing Look!

01/29/2016 at 09:13 AM ET

There will always be those combinations that are universally beloved, like peanut butter and jelly, Bert and Ernie, or Siegfried and Roy. But then there are those divisive ones that we’d all probably be better off if it had never occurred to anyone to mix them together in the first place, and one such combination can currently be found on Iggy Azalea‘s feet.

Pairing socks with sandals is typically a style best left to grandfathers, gardeners, and golfers, but landing in LAX on Thursday, the rapper decided to reappropriate this dad-approved attire. Perhaps it was all those semi-sheer ensembles she wore during Paris Fashion Week, but Iggy decided to keep things super cozy and covered-up on her trip back, opting for oversized knitwear from head to toe, paired with some Louis Vuitton luggage, oversized shades, and of course, the shoe-sock look in question.

Athleisure has obviously been a major trend over the past year, so while pairing pastel athletic socks with slip-on sandals isn’t exactly treading fresh sartorial territory, it’s still hard to shake this looks’ patriarchal connotations. Hopefully Iggy’s choice in footwear hasn’t led her down a dad fashion wormhole. We should probably all keep an eye on her just to make sure no cargo pocket chinos or 3XL Tommy Bahama Hawaiian shirts rear there ugly heads. Just to be safe.

What do you think of Iggy Azalea’s sock and sandal combo? Do you wear them together or would you consider it a fashion faux pas?

She looks like a slob. The whole outfit is a confusing mess. She really annoys me.

^LOL as if her career depends on T.I. and she literally only has a publishing deal with him, which is still ongoing according to both, the media as usual blew everything out of proportion. she doesn’t need him anyway.

It’s an airport, she looks comfortable. Go Iggy!!

I don’t get why it is popular to hate on certain celebrities. I would love to see any of the people who have left negative comments. I bet your life isn’t as great as hers. I am not a rap fan, but live and let live.
