The Fifty Shades star has a mean street style game, and she knows her way around the cool girl aesthetic that's every fashion girl's dream. Dakota's laidback style is all the rage right now, and the fact that she makes it look so effortless has us crushing even more! Dakota is fifty shades of fashionable, which is why she's fashion's girl of the moment!
1. She's not afraid of bold colors
Neutrals may be a staple in your closet, but a pop of color never hurt anybody. Dakota's show-stopping red coat adds interest to an otherwise monochrome outfit. She pairs it with a striped tee and a blue bucket bag for a modern take on the nautical look.
2. She has perfected the no-fuss off-duty look
Dakota knows her way around the casual model off-duty look: the perfect white tee, a pair of lived-in boyfriend jeans (cuffed and folded just so), statement sunglasses, and the It shoes of the moment (in this case, lace-up flats). Throw in a leopard belt for texture and contrast, and you've got a look that's nonchalantly chic.
3. She can turn it up on the red carpet
Dakota might have a mean street style game, but she knows when to turn it up a notch on the red carpet. She favors gowns with clean lines and simple silhouettes that show off her best features, as well as exude an elegance that's almost otherworldly. Meanwhile, an intense red lip adds a bold touch to a timeless look.
4. She knows that you can't go wrong with an LBD
Ah, the LBD, the workhorse of every woman's closet. You can wear it to work, to a party, to church—practically everywhere. It's simple and timeless, and it always looks good, and Dakota knows it. It's also the perfect piece to showcase IG-worthy shoes! Add a classic handbag, and you've got an outfit that always looks good, no matter what.
5. She's not afraid to get trendy
Trends are usually a hit or miss, and most people either go all out or don't bother. Dakota knows which trends work for her own sense of style, taking the worn-in shirt (a la Kanye's Yeezy collection) and pairing it with a classic pair of slacks. She knocks not one, but three trends out of the park by also wearing a statement belt and loafers. The result: a look that makes trends fit in with her own sense of style, not the other way around.
6. She makes florals look summer-ready
Here, Dakota is seen taking what could be a boring old floral dress, and elevating it with an on-trend straw hat and all-white accessories. Perfect for a casual Sunday or for sightseeing around town!
7. She can be edgy, too
Dakota knows when to edge up her look, as is the case with her leather jacket, crop top, and loose-fitting trousers. A pair of stiletto heels creates a sleek profile that adds polish. Simple yet gorgeous AF!
