If it were socially acceptable to wear our workout clothes and sneakers all the time, we would. No one can deny the superior comfort of the athleisure trend, and thanks to the It girls who consistently embrace them, athletic silhouettes and sporty accessories have become some of the most covetable pieces to own. However, they can easily skew as a bit too effortless (read: lazy), which is why we’re stealing Gigi Hadid’s simple trick for elevating these casual items to cool-girl status. While out in New York City, the supermodel teamed bright red training sneakers with cat-eye sunnies rendered in the same hue. The combination reads unexpectedly sleek and polished, showing us that donning matching sunglasses helps elevate the athletic look whether you pair them with kicks, hoodies or leggings. Try the styling hack yourself by scoring a winning pair from our colorful picks ahead.
