Yara Shahidi was all smiles as she spent some quality time with her mother Keri Shahidi in Soho, New York on Tuesday. The 22-year-old model and TV personality showcased her summer wardrobe with lightweight pieces and fashionable shoes.
The “Grown-ish” alum hit the streets in a simple white T-shirt. Yara teamed the loose top with yellow pants. The relaxed bottoms had a lettuce trim all over and a slight flare on the hem.
To stay cool in the hot weather, the entertainer sported a cool face without makeup and parted her signature curly tresses down the middle. Yara kept her accessories to a minimum and only added a gold necklace and a Christian Dior handbag which she kept strapped around her. The “Black-ish” star continued to make the handbag her main statement piece while in the Big Apple. Yara’s mother, Keri Shahidi, was comfortable and relaxed for the mother-daughter outing. She put a sporty twist on a brown linen dress with chunky dad sneakers.
Yara completed her look with a pair of black leather double strap sandals. The shoe style featured two thick Velcro straps and was secured on a thick outsole. Velcro sandals like those from Yara are now a high fashion trend. The style of these sporty sandals goes a long way. Clean lines highlight this silhouette’s minimal aesthetic, making it a practical shoe choice for any activity.
Shahidi is a fashion icon in her own right. The “Paw Patrol” actress has a personal aesthetic that includes bold colors, loud patterns, streetwear staples and monochrome tracksuits. Working closely with her stylist Jason Bolden, Shahidi is never afraid to try the trends. For shoes, she favors embellished sandals, platform silhouettes and shiny pumps. Along with her eclectic style, the artist has made a name for herself in the fashion industry by collaborating with Adidas.
