Gabrielle Union pulled together a series of spring’s biggest trends to create a must-have outfit this weekend.

The upcoming star of the “Cheaper by the Dozen” remake brought color and flair to her Sunday attire, tapping designer Roberta Einer in a bright dress. The orange, pink and yellow $830 number is formed from knitted fabric with crocheted cuffs and a crocheted collar.

Fishnet, crocheted fabric and open-knit materials come together as a major trend for celeb style in 2021. Whether it’s a netted gown on the red carpet or Bottega Veneta’s cult-favorite sandals, Rihanna, Kylie Jenner and Dua Lipa are amongst the many who have modeled these fabrics over the past few weeks alone.

When it came down to footwear, the “Bring It On” alumna broke out another major seasonal silhouette in big toe sandals. Big-toe silhouettes became a celebrity-endorsed style in the summer of 2019 and have since continued to appear on the likes of Katy Perry, Lori Harvey and Katie Holmes amongst others. The style offers a laid-back appeal with the stability and familiarity of the 1990s, a common theme amongst “it” girl trends this season.

Union’s pair, in particular, comes from model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s new collaboration with Gia Couture Firenze. Together, the model and Italian brand created a chic capsule of mules and sandals including Union’s Toe Ring Mule that retails for $735 online.
