Kim Kardashian Brings the Thong Sandal Trend Abroad in a Peek-a-Boo Top & Silky Shorts

Kim Kardashian brought one of footwear’s biggest trends to the Eternal City this week.

The media personality visited Rome, Italy, this week with stops in the Vatican as well, sharing all the abroad travels on her Instagram last night. In the first image, Kim posed in front of the famous Colosseum in trending fashion.

Her ensemble matched a keyhole-cutout long-sleeve top to the silkiest navy shorts, all tied together with her choice of thong sandals.

The gray round-toe silhouette came set atop a lifted stiletto heel with thin straps to match, bearing resemblance to popular designs from Gianvito Rossi and Yeezy. The Gianvito Rossi designer heels include butter-soft leather uppers and a $695 price tag at MyTheresa.

Thong-toe footwear returned to the celebrity scene last year as one of spring and summer’s biggest trends and is expected to stick around in 2021. Be it classic flip-flops or thong-toe heels, the minimalistic silhouette falls in line with a ’90s-inspired revitalization of fashion, as seen with shoes like square-toe styles and pops of neon color. Stars like Chrissy Teigen along with Meryl Streep and Gabrielle Union amongst other major names are continuing to support the trend in even cooler temperatures.

When it comes to her personal style, Kim’s outfit this week is just a few of many wild combinations in the television personality‘s closet. Despite the recent news of their filing for divorce, Kim still favors Kanye West’s Yeezy collections for footwear and apparel as well, in addition to sneakers and boots from his Adidas Yeezy line. She styles the pieces with coordinating looks from every hit brand you can think of — the list usually includes Balmain, Balenciaga, Amina Muaddi, Maison Margiela and Bottega Veneta.

In addition to stylish looks on and off the set of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kim also dipped her toes into the fashion and beauty world with a mix of ventures. She created her Skims shapewear line in 2019, featuring a mix of inclusive designs and now affordable face masks too. Additionally, the reality television personality also founded her own makeup line, KKW Beauty, in the fall of 2019.
