Hathaway continued to channel a 1960s suburban style with short, puffy hair that was held back with a small pink clip and flipped at the ends. She accessorized her outfit with oversized black shades and a delicate pearl necklace.

Completing her warm weather ensemble was a pair of black Birkenstock sandals. The comfort-shaped slider offers breathability, a contoured cork footbed and additional soft foam for cushioning.

The shoe’s silhouette has been affectionately dubbed “ugly sandals,” marked by wide straps and a chunky construction, often prioritizing comfort and foot support over popular trends that don’t emphasize practicality. Contrary to their name, “ugly sandals” are actually a stylish choice of modern shoes, worn by celebrities and fashion influencers. Rated “ugly sandals” include the ever-popular Birkenstocks.

Hathaway favors sophisticated, on-trend pieces that emphasize construction and fabric. When it comes to footwear, she tends to gravitate toward sleek boots, classic pumps, and sky-high wedge sandals.
