Personally, I think Dakota Johnson is a bit of an unsung hero when it comes to celebrity style. Whether dipping between press events, heading out with friends or simply running errands, Johnson has a rare and enviable ability to make any outfit she wears look effortlessly chic. An expert at playing with proportions and fabrics, you'll often find her sporting some sort of well-tailored jacket coupled with a sleek leather item for a put-together look dripping in cool-girl energy. In my time as a Johnson fashion fan, I've kept a keen eye on her style, eager to nail it down in the pursuit of never-ending wardrobe inspiration. On the way, I've picked up a few tips and tricks. Having traipsed through endless images, I'm confident in saying that these five items are the pillar of Johnson's flawless and simple winter capsule wardrobe. Read on to discover just how she does it.

1. LEATHER TROUSERS
Style Notes: Tapping into one of winter's biggest trends, Johnson has recently been spotted styling leather trousers on outings in the city. The sleek, luxe fabric will instantly transform an everyday outfit into an evening-ready ensemble in no time at all.
Perfectly slouchy, style these with a crystal mesh top and black kitten heels to get through party season in style.
2. BLACK MAXI SKIRT
Style Notes: The subtle power of a black maxi skirt is that it can bring cohesion to your look for an overall polished effect. To wear it like Johnson, pair with black knee-high boots and throw on your favourite oversized blazer.
Tweed is the retro fabric trend that continues to come back season after season.
4. EVERYDAY JEANS
Style Notes: Every stylish wardrobe starts with a reliable pair of blue jeans, and Johnson's slightly baggy style fits the bill perfectly. Wear with a classic blazer or style with a frilly blouse—either way you've achieved styling perfection
This winter I'm shopping for dark-wash denim, and it's hard to look beyond COS' perfect straight-leg jeans.
5. BIKER BOOTS
Style Notes: Just like ballet flats and low-rise jeans, biker boots are the '00s trend that has taken the fashion set by storm this season. Take your cue from the actress' book and wear them with an oversized trench this season.
