When it comes to stylish celebrities, there are those who tend to stay current on the changing trends, and those who prefer to keep it timeless. Dakota Johnson is, without a doubt, the latter. Known and loved for her ultra-cool, retro-inspired personal style, the actor has long been a favorite amongst fashion lovers looking to nail down a sensible, yet laidback wardrobe. Her favorite pieces — loafers, blazers, and jeans – all carry the makings of a pristine fall wardrobe, which make now the perfect time to do a careful audit of her style file. Therein, TZR rounded out seven fall outfits inspired by Dakota Johnson that you can recreate today, and they're all so versatile.
If celebrities were to be be conflated with a certain decade based on their style, Dakota Johnson's would be the '70s. Known for a certain minimalism that favors earth tones over neutrals, the actor carved out an aesthetic that's spilled over into all parts of her life, from her Gucci ambassadorship to her mid-century modern home (think plants, books, and vinyl records, piled high in every corner of every room). To channel her learned, yet leisurely aesthetic into your own wardrobe, follow the no-fail outfit formulas she's laid out ahead, featuring looks from years past that are still super relevant today.
