The “Bring It On” actress beat the heat in a white midi dress while filming her new movie, “The Perfect Find,” in downtown Manhattan with Latoia Fitzgerald and Remy Ma. Union’s dress featured a cinched waist and ruched gray stripe details on its’ front and the slightly puffy three-quarters-length sleeves. She accessorized with a collar necklace, a chunky gold ring and dark gray earrings, creating a tonal neutral look.

Shoe-wise, Union always goes for the bold. The actress tends to favor of-the-moment trends, most recently wearing square-toed thong sandals by Magda Butrym, By Far and Gia Couture’s recent collaboration with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She’s also known for wearing strappy sandals and tall boots as well, usually by top brands like Paris Texas, Tamara Mellon and Tabitha Simmons. While off-duty, Union prefers both colorful and neutral sneakers by Adidas, Reebok and Nike.
