Dakota Johnson Wore the Trend for Anyone Who Doesn't Like Baggy or Skinny Jeans

If Dakota Johnson is your denim style muse, consider this your happy place. A place where you can get trend inspiration from the coolest of women. And her latest outfit could solve a denim predicament that you might be having. As you know, the denim trend cycle has been dominated by baggy jeans as of late. A stark alternative to that is skinny jeans, which aren't trendy per se, but remain popular. If you don't like either of these styles, my guess is that you want something in between. Enter Dakota Johnson.

You can always count on Johnson for cool, on-trend denim outfits, and earlier this week in Santa Monica, she wore a look that was no exception. Her outfit featured the denim trend that's perfect for anyone who hates baggy and skinny jeans: wide-leg jeans. Johnson's high-waisted, medium-blue style works with practically every type of shoe and is ideal for both day and night. This low-key style also never really goes out of style, so there's that.
