Gina Rodriguez looks sporty yet casual, and it’s a total summer vibe at the moment. The “Jane the Virgin” actress was spotted yesterday while on set for the TV series “Players.”
For the outfit, Rodriguez wore a bright red tank dress that featured a square sweetheart neckline and incorporated thick shoulder straps for maximum support and comfort.
As it pertains to shoes, the actress wore a pair of white Air Force One sneakers that are on-trend in the current fashion landscape. By adding a pair of simple white Nike sneakers, she took a dress that looks very formal and made it appear to be casual in nature.
Pairing a sneaker with a more formal look adds a bit of a relaxed edge to an entire ensemble. Mixing something more sporty and athletic, like a sneaker, with something more dressy like a cocktail dress creates a sensibility of wanting to look polished and refined but comfortable at the same time — hence why celebs are always wearing this trend.
Rodriguez’s essential style features clothing considered comfy-chic, but they’re bold enough to make a statement. Her Instagram feed displays photos of her in hoodies, sweatshirts, tank tops and other simple silhouettes from brands like Free People. When it’s time to dress more festive, Rodriguez wears striking looks from brands like Zuhair Murad and Missoni. For footwear, she typically wears styles like flats and sneakers.
Rodriguez is known for creating beautiful red carpet moments that are ethereal and expressive. Her red carpet style has a feeling of whimsicality and always plays with the idea of being edgy yet tamed simultaneously. The “Miss Bala“ actress also appeared in a fashion campaign for the brand Kipling in 2015.
Slip on a pair of white sneakers and give your dress an athletic twist, inspired by Gina Rodriguez.
