Sofia Richie combined two summer sandal trends while shopping in Cannes with her fiancé, Elliot Grainge.

Strolling through Cannes on Wednesday, the Slazenger model held hands with Grainge in a printed slip dress. Upon closer inspection, the piece appeared to be a white tank-style dress with a folded skirt and print of a black slip dress — cleverly creating the illusion of a layered garment. Adding to her look’s ’90s aesthetic was a yellow leather shoulder bag and black aviator sunglasses. Richie finished her ensemble with blue and purple drop earrings and a stack of layered bracelets.

When it came to shoes, the “Candidly Nicole” star allowed her feet to breathe in a pair of black leather thong sandals. The style featured wide front straps and curved toe straps. However, the set also included crossed side straps that formed loops for Richie’s big toes — simultaneously tapping into the toe-loop sandal trend. The pair, which included short rectangular heels and white minimalist stitching, gave Richie’s outfit an easygoing air that was ideal for the hot summer afternoon.

Thong sandals are a revolving trend in summer footwear, favored for their ease to be slipped on and off. Toe-loop sandals have emerged as a recent trend that capitalizes on the same silhouette in recent months, forming a look or specific opening for big toes to be secured. The current season has seen big-toe pairs emerge from a range of brands, including ATP Atelier, Schutz and Cordani. Additionally, Richie’s not the only star spotlighting her toes this summer; celebrities including Gigi Hadid, Olivia Culpo and Kristin Cavallari have also worn pairs by J.W. Anderson, Gia Borghini x Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Raye in recent weeks.

On the footwear front, Richie typically wears a range of styles and brands. The star can be seen in strappy sandals and pointed-toe pumps on the red carpet from Andrea Wazen, Tom Ford and Giuseppe Zanotti. She’s also been spotted wearing Celine loafers, as well as Chanel, Nike, APL and Adidas sneakers while off-duty. The model is a fashion world mainstay, having dropped capsule collections with Frankie’s Bikinis, PrettyLittleThing and Misguided. In the past, she’s even co-designed a collection for House of Harlow 1960 with big sis Nicole Richie, and just launched her own collaborative line with Bar III at Macy’s.
