ESC, Dare to Wear Gigi Hadid

Fresh off of her Victoria's Secret runway debut, a one Miss Gigi Hadid has stunned us once again with her subtly-sexy signature style.

The budding supermodel makes anything look easy to wear, and this thigh-high slit dress paired with a camel coat for a monochrome look is no doubt one we'll put a pin in. But however sleek an all-nude outfit may be, let's be honest—a one-tone outfit is not a particularly daring or newsworthy trend.

What really bolsters Gigi's otherwise predictable street-style look are her Ray-Bay red-lens sunnies. Trust us: If you didn't notice them at first, her reflective shades are the reason that this outfit feels special.

We've talked about statement sunnies in bold, over-the-top shapes before, but punching out the lens of a classic style with a bright color is a surprising swap for everyday swag.

If you're going with a cherry-red lens, do as the model does and keep the rest of the look streamlined with a neutral, monochrome palette. For clothing selects, stick to classic silhouettes like a bodycon turtleneck dress, a belted coat and sky-high stilettos all in varying textures.

Don't be afraid to apply this theory to other color combinations as well. Tinted sunnies in crisp blue or electric yellow teamed with an all-black or white-on-white ensemble look extra-fresh too.

So for the next time you want to turn heads in your neutral outfit: Do you dare to wear red sunglasses?
