Growing up in South Central L.A. during the golden age of hip hop, Aleali May looked up to icons like Aaliyah and Tupac, and accessorized her Catholic school uniform with her prized pair of Air Jordans and a pair of slouchy socks. Fast-forward to present day, and the sought-after stylist and model brings that same sense for elevating street wear into an art form, now including a new three-sock collection she designed for Stance.
