There’s one polished staple that Dakota Johnson updates each season: loafers. While her love for the preppy footwear seems to have no limits, she’s been instrumental in shaking off its back-to-work connotations. Instead, she’s made the chic shoes part of her everyday wardrobe.
Her latest pair comes courtesy of Gucci, of course. While out in a sun-drenched Malibu this week, The High Note actor paired her Jordaan beige wool loafers with a “Miracles Happen Everyday” Moussy tee, cream-coloured Anine Bing Elyse trousers and a baby-blue paisley bandana. With a Free People tangerine satin scrunchie wrapped around her wrist, Johnson joined Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber in the growing scrunchie fan club.
Johnson isn’t the only one with an unwavering love for loafers. Bella Hadid can’t get enough of her Prada pair; while Zoë Kravitz adores her Saint Laurent Le Loafer penny slippers. Johnson finds inspiration for her own daily looks via moodboards. “I use them for clothing, for emotional [needs], and meals. Mood boards are like playlists for physical things,” Johnson recently revealed during an appearance on her stylist Kate Young’s new YouTube series, Hello Fashion. As for evening? This Gucci fan makes a switch: “I’m just a regular ball in the daytime and then a disco ball at night.”
