Dakota Johnson Just Wore the Trending Trainer Colour That's All Over London Right Now

White trainers will always be considered a wardrobe staple, but right now, there's a new trainer colour trend that's on the up for summer. Already beloved by in-the-know London fashion people who have been sporting them since before spring, brown trainers are set to become even more of a hit, and Dakota Johnson has just let us know that she's also a fan.

Styling a dark brown pair of retro-inspired Nike Cortez trainers, Johnson crafted a relaxed off-duty look that I'll be copying ASAP. Reaching for a pair of white jeans to form the foundation of her look, the actor used her elevated trainer choice to liven up her neutral outfit and create an interesting ensemble that feels both laid-back and polished.

With a sleek and elegant undertone, this trainer colour trend offers a more sophisticated take on the decidedly casual shoe. Styling well with white cotton or linen trousers throughout the hotter months, the elevated trainer trend also works well with the blue jeans and black trousers that typically saturate wardrobes.

Whilst you might not be used to wearing brown trainers (yet), they're just as easy to work with as black or white, making them a clear choice if you're in need of a fresh pair of kicks. Before Johnson's latest look, I had already spotted so many London-based influencers wearing the brown trainer trend, and I expect it'll be sticking around for the foreseeable.
