Ciara went tropical while promoting Ten To One rum.

The “All You’ve Got” actress posed behind the scenes on Instagram in a daring halter-neck dress, which featured a dark brown leather bra top, knotted leather straps and ring accents. The musician’s ensemble was cinched with a draped skirt composed of numerous red threads, creating an alluring and intricate garment. Ciara’s look was complete with diamond stud earrings and gold bangles.

“Mood #Weekend,” the singer captioned a photo dump, which included her posing against a beachy backdrop.

When it came to shoes, the “1, 2 Step” singer strapped into a pair of Femme LA sandals. Her $189 Luce Minimal style featured thin slingback and toe straps, as well as delicate ankle straps designed to wrap around her ankles or legs. The style also featured a dark brown hue with a python texture for added sleekness. The pair was complete with daring 4.5-inch stiletto heels, allowing the shoes to make a bold statement on their own.

Strappy lace-up sandals like Ciara’s have been a top trend in the last year, featuring cords, laces or ties that wrap around the wearer’s ankles, knees or thighs. The style has soared in popularity from its’ sleek appearance, as well as support from tall straps. In addition to the singer, stars like Kristin Cavallari, Jennifer Lopez and Lori Harvey have strapped into slick sandals by Gia Borghini x RHW, Bottega Veneta and JLO Jennifer Lopez in recent weeks. Ciara is familiar with lace-up heels, even wearing a white Femme pair to Elle’s Women in Hollywood event last fall.
