I Can't Fault Dakota Johnson's Simple Jeans-and-Flats Pairing

Dakota Johnson’s style is on fire right now, and I don’t expect anyone to disagree with me. From her monochromatic tailoring looks to her Cinderella shoe moment, the star has been pulling out all the style stops for her recent slew of appearances in conjunction with the promo tour for her latest acting gig, the film adaptation of Jane Austen’s acclaimed novel Persuasion

Still, in a flurry of fancy and glamorous looks, many of which feature designer buys I could only dream of owning, Johnson was also spotted out and about wearing an uncomplicated, everyday ensemble that’s so pure in its simplicity I can’t help but want to steal it for myself. 

Dakota Johnson’s Jeans-and-Loafers: The look we all want to copy



On Johnson: Re/Done 70s High Rise Stove Pipe Straight-Leg Jeans (£265)

Sporting a pair of Re/Done's Stove Pipe jeans—a style our editors can (and have) vouched forDakota looked effortless as she paired them with a slightly slouchy-fitting white T-shirt and classic black horse-bit loafers. Backless ones at that. 

Although I can’t say this look is groundbreaking or new, it does reinforce the idea that, in fashion, where trends can come and now at the drop of a hat, wardrobe basics such as this are forever and have everlasting appeal. Scroll on to shop Johnson’s go-to jeans below as well as other options for the rest of her outfit at every price point. 


I love the cut and faded blue on this pair. 

These come in a handful of chic shades of blue, grey and black. 


These look like a designer pair of loafers. 

If you fancy trying a backless pair like Johnson's, try these. 

The hardware on this pair is next-level beautiful. 

If you prefer your loafers on the plain side.

I like the slouchy fit of this tee; it’s just like Johnson’s. 

When I need a T-shirt top-up, M&S is the first place I go.
