Vanessa Hudgens took her bohemian style abroad to Italy.

Last night, the “High School Musical” alumn took to Instagram to share her latest outfit: a cutout Patbo maxi dress in a paneled red, pink, and purple color palette. The garment featured a flowing mesh skirt, deep V-neck silhouette, and cutout midsection. The cutout’s bottom straps and neckline were lined in pink fringe, adding to the piece’s bohemian glamour. Hudgens accessorized with gold necklaces and a silver ring, oversized sunglasses with gold lenses, a mini brown leather Telfar tote bag, and a chic top knot.

On the footwear front, Hudgens slipped on a pair of brown leather thong sandals by Tkees, which are just $50. The Foundation Matte style featured thin thong straps, as well as a cushioned footbed for added comfort. Hudgens likes mixing budget-friendly brands into her wardrobe along with luxury pieces, making the affordable sandals a chic style that anyone can easily incorporate into their wardrobes. Her sandals retail for $50 on Zappos.com.

However, yesterday’s boho look wasn’t Hudgens’ only style moment of the day. The actress also slipped on a pair of chunky Balenciaga Triple S sneakers with tall white socks and a chic white off-the-shoulder dress to take in the country’s sweeping sights, as shared on Instagram. Hudgens accessorized with a scarf tied around her head, as well as a glass of wine.

When it comes to shoes, Hudgens varies between sleek and sporty styles. When off-duty, the “Beastly” actress frequently wears chunky sneakers from brands like Mercer Amsterdam, Naked Wolfe, and Nike. For red carpets and events, slingback sandals and pointed-toe pumps by labels like Valentino, Jimmy Choo, and Casadei are her regular go-to’s. Fashion-wise, both pair smoothly with her colorful and eclectic bohemian wardrobe, which incorporates fringed, printed, and flowing pieces from labels like Etro, Alice + Olivia, and Realisation Par — and has even bestowed Hudgens with the title of “Queen of Coachella” as of 2018.
