Dakota Johnson Mixes Up Preppy Staples

For an afternoon shopping jaunt with fashion editor Derek Blasberg, Dakota Johnson opted for 50 shades of navy for her outfit of choice. (Also of note: resident man-about-town Blasberg gets to partake in retail therapy with all the cool girls.) Thanks to a skillful mix of accessories, the off-screen Anastasia Steele managed to make a jeans and t-shirt outfit look anything but snoozy.

First, let’s talk about the effortlessly cool way that Dakota dressed up her slouchy black t-shirt and skinny jeans. She double-wrapped a killer gold studded belt around her waist — outside of the belt loops, mind you. Then she matched that gilded embellishment in a prepped-out way via classic Gucci horsebit loafers. (Also comfy for all that walking.) To either protect her complexion from the sun (or unsuccessfully ward off the paparazzi), she wore both a large brim felt fedora and a pair of oversized cat-eye sunglasses. And despite the sweltering New York City heat, she threw Blasberg's jacket over her shoulders, making the case for an oversize blazer this fall.

During an afternoon shopping trip, Dakota Johnson sartorially said to hell with the heat by tripling up in a blazer, skinny jeans and a large fedora. Sometimes, you have to suffer for fashion.

Johnson might be wearing Derek Blasberg’s blazer in the photo, but we like the menswear effect, so go for a boxy one, like this.

Round, flat, super-sized embellishments are a more grown-up version of the rocked out, studded belt.

It’s so hard to find the perfect t-shirt. Oh, we just did.

If you don't already have a go-to pair of skinnies, you will with these.

Get a jump on the hat for fall, right now.

The new preppy.

And a light blue, chain-link strap mini bag to finish, just to lighten up the outfit.
