I recently watched How To Be Single (twice) and fell madly in love with it; partly for its strong, positive message and refreshingly realistic (to a degree – we don’t all own a cute as hell apartment in Brooklyn) storyline but also for Dakota Johnson’s character, Alice, and her killer wardrobe.
I started out researching for this post (i.e. manically scrolling through google images and pinterest) and had planned just to revolve it around Alice’s looks in the film when it dawned on me…Dakota dresses just as freaking coolly in real life. Her ‘street style’ (or ‘normal, everyday clothes that you wear outside the house’ as us commoners call it) is ridiculously on point, and it’s the first time I’ve ever been able to look at a celebrity/other person’s clothing choices and not be able to fault a single one. Next time someone asks me (OK, let’s be real; it will probably be a quiz or a magazine article) who my style icon is, I will finally have an answer: Dakota Johnson (sans 50 shades).
So in honour of how much I adore her outfits (and hair! Man, don’t even get me started on how tempted I am to get a fringe) I’ve put together my favourite (most) of her looks, both from the movie and in everyday life.
How To Be Single // Alice’s Style:
A quirky mix of overalls, fitted minidresses, chunky boots and stripes. A perfect rendition of a 20-something gal running around New York City (or any city, for that matter).
Off Duty // Dakota’s Street Style:
A tad more rocker than her on-screen persona, but that’s kinda what I adore about it. Band tees, docs, oversized denim jackets, rolled jeans, loafers, vintage-esque sweaters… Man, oh, man, I’ve literally stumbled upon sartorial heaven.
