Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been hailed one of the most stylish men in the world.
But his followers might want to think twice before copying this particular trend.
The Canadian politician, 45, stepped out wearing an outlandish pair of Star Wars themed socks as he met IMF chief Christine Lagarde in New York today.
IMF director Christine Lagarde seemed to approve of the Canadian PM’s Chewbacca socks
It’s far from the first time Justin Trudeau has worn an unusual pair on the international stage

The wacky pair featured a large print of the beloved character Chewbacca and could be seen in all their glory in the gap between Mr Trudeau’s suit trouser leg and his brown leather brogues.
It is not the first time the Canadian PM has finished off his ensemble with a pair of wacky socks while making a public appearance.

In May this year the politician made headlines when he wore mismatched R2D2 socks to meet the then Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny.
The pair met on May 4, which has become a day to celebrate all things Star Wars due to the film’s ‘may the force be with you’ tagline.
Showing support for his own nation, Trudeau has also been spotted wearing red socks with a white maple leaf print.
