The former actor added a pop of color to the ensemble by pairing the look with purple and yellow Nike sneakers.
He seemed cheerful as he hid behind dark sunglasses and adorned with a long beaded necklace.
The star opted for a large brown hat through which his long dark brown locks flow in natural curls over his shoulders.

Russell – who is known for his Big Brother’s Big Mouth presentation – left Hollywood to live a healthy life with his family.
Russell and his wife, the younger sister of TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher, Laura, are said to have recently taken ownership of the Crown Inn – a pub in Pishill, near Henley-on-Thames.
Dating back to the 16th century, the Grade II listed coaching inn is set in picturesque Oxfordshire countryside and has a detached barn which can host weddings for up to 80 people.
Overtaking: The starts seemed in good spirits as they overtook the poetry event
The couple – who tied the knot in August 2017 – found success in their other company, which specializes in TV production.
The couple shared a dividend of £1.4 million in 2020, according to company accounts.
Despite his famous call for a ‘socialist egalitarian’ revolution during a Newsnight interview in 2015, Mr Brand has amassed a net worth of around £15 million thanks to his business interests and a range of luxury properties.
Russell quit alcohol and drugs in 2003 and told The Guardian in a 2013 interview: ‘My life has improved tremendously. I have a job, a house, a cat, good friendships and generally a cheerful outlook.’

The actor successfully tackled his issues with Class A fabrics after more than a dozen violations of the law, including a high-profile arrest by the Metropolitan Police for undressing during an anti-capitalist Mayday protest in London’s teeming Piccadilly Circus.
When he was a precocious MTV reporter, he drew even more controversy by showing up to work dressed as Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, shortly after hardline Islamist terrorists flew two passenger jets into the World Trade Center.
Russell rose to international fame for his role as the tense, drug-ridden rock star Aldous Snow in the 2010 comedy Get Him To The Greek.
But he admits that the character, who aggressively snorts cocaine and has a fraught relationship with a vain, fame-seeking father, reflected his own backstory.
“I was very lucky to work with (producer) Judd Apatow and they looted my life – I told them all about my life and my childhood,” he explained in 2017. “Sometimes it was a little weird – I remember that I thought it was quite a lot of fake coke, which was a bit triggering.’
However, Russell insisted he doesn’t feel like reliving his outrageous past and joked, “F**k pleasure. And God knows I tried.’
