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.

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

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.
