While looking for some new style inspiration, I stumbled upon someone who already dresses pretty similar to myself: Dakota Johnson. I was overjoyed to see a whole new slew of looks I could create with pieces I already owned or could buy and get plenty of use out of. Then I shortly realized what could have been a really great style crush post would be far too long because I was obsessed with so many of her looks. Enter the seven day style idea. Seven Day Style is the expanded version of style crush mixed with a weekly style inspo post I used to do on my old blog.
In case you don’t know, Dakota Johnson is an actress who has starred in 21 Jump Street, Ben and Kate, How to Be Single, 50 Shades of Grey among others. She is daughter to Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. Her style is incredibly relaxed and cool. She makes looking cool seem effortless (which makes me incredibly jealous). Many of her looks are laid back, basic, and easy to copy. Many of her best looks feature wardrobe essentials (like the basic white tee and sneakers), and they make dressing down still fashionable. There’s no need to be wearing high heels to take your dog on a walk or anything. Dakota’s looks fit any occasion and give off a “trying but not trying too hard” vibe unlike many of the other style inspirations I’ve covered previously. Her style is incredibly attainable and more fitting with the ways of regular human life. Especially because most of the items can easily be mixed and matched to create different looks.
Below I’ve chosen seven looks or a week’s worth of her style to be inspiration for the week ahead.
