Bella Thorne soaked up all the sunshine she could during her trip to Miami.
The Disney Channel alumna, who recently got engaged to now-fiancé Benjamin Mascolo, took to Instagram to show off her beach-ready attire over the weekend. Prepping for a day by the water, Throne layered a matching tie-dye string bikini set under logo-coated pants courts of Balenciaga; wearing a matching top as well, the bottoms retail for over $1,600 at MyTheresa.
To top off the beachside attire, the 23-year-old actress brought back one of 2020’s biggest footwear trends: “ugly” sandals. Typically considered “ugly” in the world of fashion, the new appreciation for comfortable sandal styles comes with an increased desire for ease of wear and stability in the fashion world amidst the current environment — and for 2021, too, it appears the shoes are here to stay. Brands like Teva and Birkenstock are at the forefront of the trend while celebs including Britney Spears, Tracee Ellis Ross and Sofia Richie can oftentimes be spotted in the silhouettes.
Thorne’s own pick gave the trend a designer twist, tapping Chanel for a black double-strap design. The chic flats have since sold out but once retailed for over $1,800 and were a favorite of Elsa Hosk, Alexa Chung and more.
When it comes to Thorne’s personal style, the actress already owns a wide collection of pairs from Ugg, including the brand’s edgy graffiti slides, in addition to other more affordable trending brands like Ash, Puma and Converse. The “Shake It Up” alumna tends to mix it up between casual short shorts and sneakers and heels from brands like Christian Louboutin, Stella Luna and Saint Laurent.
The “Her & Him” star has served as an ambassador for Biore, Buxom and Neutrogena products as well as starred in campaigns for Miss Me, Candie’s and more. As for her next projects, the entertainer is also set to star in an upcoming series titled “Paradise City” alongside Olivia Culpo and the late Cameron Boyce.
