Kate Hudson Does the Thong Sandal Trend in a Floral Minidress & Straw Hat

Kate Hudson took a break from quarantine to go on a walk with her family — and she stepped out in one of the biggest shoe trends of the moment: the thong sandal.

The 40-year-old actress went for a stroll in Brentwood, Calif., over the weekend alongside her three kids, Ryder Russell Robinson (16), Bingham Hawn Bellamy (8) and Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa (1). She sported a blue minidress with a floral pattern, short sleeves and cinched waist.

For footwear, the Fabletics co-founder selected blush-colored thong sandals with double straps. She completed her look with a sunhat and dark shades.

While it’s unclear what shoe brand Hudson selected this weekend, she’s previously chosen casual styles such as Adidas slides, Timberland workboots and Nike Air Force 1s. For awards shows and other red carpet appearances, she elevates her look with soaring heels from designer labels such as Jimmy Choo and Brian Atwood.

The thong sandal has often been considered a fashion no-no, relegated to the beach or nail salon. However, the past few years have seen a revitalization of the silhouette, thanks to celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Emily Ratajkowski. Sleek styles with narrow straps — and in some cases, high heels — have become “It” girl fashion favorites.
