While barefoot at the beach, Vanessa Hudgens Brightens Up with a Red Bikini and Anklet

In order to enjoy a warm summer afternoon at the beach, Vanessa Hudgens added a splash of color.

The “My Little Pony: A New Generation” actress stood by seaside cliffs with close friend Vince Rossi, as was posted on Instagram on Saturday. She dressed in a red two-piece bikini with angular bottoms and a red top with thin straps and glittering gold details for the event. Hudgens finished off her look with a gold anklet, many rings, and bright sunglasses. This summer’s Y2K resurgence has made the boho jewelry particularly in-vogue; celebrities like Rihanna, Heidi Klum, and Joan Smalls have sported them, and new collections by Nadri, Kat Maconie, and Marrow Fine Jewelry also include the stylish ankle accessories.

The originator of Cali Water chose to go barefoot on the beach. She probably added some slides or thong sandals off-camera, though, as these slip-on styles are well-known for their comfort and easiness during the hotter summer months. New models from Sperry, Cougar, and Havaianas all incorporate features like cushioned straps, foam soles, and tonal hues.

The Hudgens’ beach outing is her most recent visit to a sandy beach. The actress has been regularly seen by the water this summer; last week, she even had the opportunity to dance with Rossi while carrying a glass of wine, as she hilariously posted on Instagram.

Hudgens like a variety of shoe designs, from stylish to athletic. The “Gimme Shelter” actress frequently sports chunky shoes from brands like Naked Wolfe, Mercer Amsterdam, and Balenciaga for casual outfits and the gym. She typically dons pointed-toe shoes and platforms from Manolo Blahnik, Brian Atwood, and Stuart Weitzman when walking the red carpet. Hudgens also incorporates less expensive footwear, such the $50 Tkees flip-flops, Crocs clogs, and Adidas slides, into her off-duty outfit. During New York Fashion Week, she also sat first row for designers including Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, and Anna Sui in addition to the Savage X Fenty Vol. 3 fashion show.
