Dakota Johnson Just Wore 3 Fresh Colour Trends to Elevate Her Simplest Summer Outfits

In my opinion, there's no better time to experiment with colour than the summer season. Inspired by the technicolour flowers that line every street and energised by the bright blue sky above, a joyful summer scene makes styling a more playful palette all the easier.

Inspired by the newfound sunshine, I've spotted Dakota Johnson incorporating several fresh colour trends into her simple summer wardrobe rotation this week. Styling everything from relaxed ensembles featuring a few jolts of colour to all-out, colour-drenched 'fits, the actor's recent outfits have inspired me to shake up my summer styling with the addition of some new hues.

To indulge your wardrobe in the same summer spirit, read on to discover the three fresh colour trends that Johnson is using to liven up her looks.

Style Notes: From soft, buttery shades to orange-tinted sunshine tones, this summer, the yellow colour trend is taking off, and Johnson is on board. Styling a calf-grazing yellow dress from L.A. brand Dôen, the actor grounded her look with retro trainers and chic sunglasses, creating a comfortable summer outfit that felt both fresh and spirited.


2. RED

Style Notes: Pepping up her white-tee outfit with a cosy red knit thrown over her shoulders and burgundy trousers, Johnson added a vivid splash of colour to her look in the most low-key way. A wearable shade that never goes out of style, red will instantly lift an all-white look and looks even chicer when styled with other vivid shades.

Style Notes: As a devoted Dakota Johnson fan, I know full well that sage green is one of her all-time favourite shades. Often styling it with the white and blue jeans that saturate her wardrobe, she comes back to this colour time and again. Wearing it this week with some light cream layers, the actor incorporated the tone in a subtle yet impactful way.
