Iggy Azalea Rocks Socks with Sandals at LAX, Makes Normcore Footwear Look So "Fancy"

Love her or hate her, you can't deny that Iggy Azalea is really freaking cool. So cool, in fact, that the "Fancy" singer wore socks with sandals and I didn't hate it. Since that combination usually makes my skin itch like I'm breaking out in hives, this is big news. Iggy Azalea rocked the socks and pool slides at LAX on Wednesday, proving that maybe she is "the realest" after all.

Iggy nailed chillaxed travel style in an Andy Warhol t-shirt, black sweats, shades, and a studded MCM backpack, plus pale blue socks and black-and-white athletic sandals. She clearly recognizes that comfort is key for air travel but refuses to sacrifice style, and she looks amazing doing it. The whole thing is very "off-duty hip hop mogul," although the Warhol tee adds a dose of hipster cred. The next time you want to slip outside to the local bodega in your pajamas, remember: it's possible to look cool and like you've spent all day watching Netflix in bed at the same time.

I'm not sure if Iggy's bad bitch attitude is what makes this work or if normcore footwear could be great on anyone with the right outfit. I'm inclined to believe the former, but hey — why not give this look a chance next time you're hitting the airport? It sure would make the shoe-removal part of airport security a breeze. If pool slides and socks will make me look like Iggy, I'm all in.
