The “Black-ish” star carried her must-haves in a Christian Dior shoulder bag. Yara parted her curly tresses in the middle and kept two black hair ties on her wrist. To stay cool under the warm temperatures she opted for a fresh face with no makeup.

Completing Yara’s look was a pair of black leather black double-strap sandals. The shoe style featured two thick velcro straps across and was set on a chunky outsole. Velcro sandals like Yara’s are now a high fashion trend. Styling these sporty sandals range far and wide. Clean lines highlight the minimal aesthetic of this silhouette, making them a practical shoe choice for any activity.

Yara’s mother Keri Shahidi went casual for the stroll sporting a white short-sleeve T-shirt with baggy charcoal jeans. She added clear frames, gold hoop earrings and a brown bag that she kept strapped on her shoulder. Keri rounded out her look with sneakers.
