Hailey Baldwin’s red mini dress is making us think twice about latex

There are some fashion faux pas we just have to respect. Yes, most of the time, these rules are the most fun to break, but there’s a time and place for everything. Up until now, we thought that latex was one of those things that had to be worn under just the right circumstances. Now, Hailey Baldwin is making a case for latex with her latest look, and we are seeing the fabric in a new light.

On Wednesday night, to the iGo.live launch, Hailey wore a cherry-red latex mini dress that’s making us want to shop for one of our own.


When you’re rocking a statement-making textile like latex, it’s important to keep the silhouette and accessories in mind, especially when the dress is a vibrant hue. For Hailey, this meant keeping the rest of her outfit simple, so her dress could do the talking. By making the strapless MESHKI mini dress (only $80!) the center of attention, and pairing it with matching pumps, she makes this look feel sleek and not overdone.

While Hailey’s dress could have been giving us some major Britney Spears vibes circa “Oops, I did It Again,” it feels modern, thanks to the rest of the ensemble. Hailey paired the look with a sleek ponytail and gold hoop earrings, finishing it off with an oversized leather jacket. We love the idea of latex and leather together.


Next time you feel daring, try reaching for a latex dress. Who knows, maybe you’ll like it more than you expect.
