Julianne Hough took her talents abroad to Portugal this weekend.

The “Dancing With the Stars” alumna visited Nazaré, Portugal, with fellow actress Nina Dobrev and friends on Saturday in cross-seasonal styling — think a neon bikini worn under a ribbed sweatshirt and pant set. The layered ensemble balanced prepped for both the beachy shoes of the town and the windier conditions off the cliffs.

On her feet, Hough gave a nod to summer trends in comfy-chic flat sandals with a thong-toe finish.

Thong-toe footwear also returned to the celebrity scene last year as one of its biggest trends and is sticking around in 2021. Be it classic flip-flops or thong-toe heels, the minimalistic silhouette falls in line with the aforementioned ’90s-inspired revitalization of fashion. Stars like Kendall Jenner along with Meryl Streep, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez amongst other major names are continuing to support the trend in even cooler temperatures.

For Julianne Hough’s off-duty looks, the “Footloose” star typically prefers more athletically-inclined apparel for everyday wear. She joined forces with the Fit On app last year to provide on-the-go workout classes in partnership with her Kinrgy fitness program, giving her millions of followers a preview of the workouts on Instagram. Her workout-chic looks include everything from matching green leggings sets with metallic sneakers to yoga-ready blush pink combinations, perfect for taking on yoga poses.

When she isn’t in Lululemon leggings or her favorite Hoka One One sneakers, you can find Hough in designer duds from the likes of Georges Chakra, Stella McCartney and Madga Butrym amongst others. She also serves as an ambassador for MPG Sports and FitBit, continuing her active lifestyle.
