Gabrielle Union Just Wore This Summer's Best Shade of Red

Wearing spicy-hot red for summer is groundbreaking...right? Wrong.

When worn in a muted terracotta hue, like Gabrielle Union, a head-to-toe red outfit can feel completely new and incredibly chic.

See what we mean?

The L.A.'s Finest actress, who recently debuted her new short, choppy haircut, wore a muted vermillion red cropped-pant-and-vest suit by Rosie Assoulin with slightly darker coordinated overcoat by Arias. This lesson in monochrome dressing, and in this exciting new hue, has us fiending for a closet refresh for ourselves.

Union attended the Heart Breakfast at Global Radio Studios in London on Thursday, and wore a pair of baby-blue heeled sandals, adding a funky pop of pastel to complete the look.

Going to go scour our closet for anything dusty red and baby blue...aka the most lovely and unexpected color combo of summer.
