Vanessa Hudgens

The Image Direct

Vanessa Hudgens knows how to turn heads. Earlier this week, the 33-year-old star stepped out in an effortlessly cool-girl look with an iced coffee in hand. Sure, it may be the season of burnt orange, deep maroon, and golden hues, but Hudgens opted for a bright athleisure set that was too good to ignore.

Walking along the streets, she adorned neon green biker shorts and a matching sports bra from Gymshark, similar to Hailey Bieber’s pilates ‘fit from March. The actress layered it with a white, see-through crop top featuring a raw hem. The crop top reads, “Dead Hot,” which is undoubtedly linked to the singer’s upcoming reality TV show, Dead Hot: Season of the Witch, set in Salem, Mass. 

Hudgens went all in with a pair of white “dad shoes” decorated with lime green flecks. But she isn’t the only celeb who has been loving the “dad shoe” trend: Jennifer Garner has been spotted in her Brooks Glycerin 19 running shoes in the past, while Emily Ratajkowski is loving her New Balance 574 V1 Sport sneakers.

Playing into her love of Halloween, Hudgens added some black- and white-striped spooky socks, which make me think of these $7 Ghost Trouser Socks from J.Crew. 

To complete the look, the Caliwater co-founder threw her hair into a high top knot and accessorized with a pair of chunky earrings and a thick necklace. This $148 Mejuri Bold Herringbone Chain Necklace gives off the same vibes, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t add it to my cart. She topped it all off with a pair of black, oval sunglasses from Dezi. You know the ones; the pair that everyone and their grandma has been sporting — and I’m not mad about it. If you’re in the market for a pair, these $59 Revolve sunglasses should do the trick since the Dezi ones are currently sold out. 

Some may say this look is reserved for spring and summer alone, but Hudgens is showing us you don’t always have to “stick to the status quo” — and yes, that was absolutely a High School Musical reference. Shop her style below.
