Celebrity red carpet looks are always ones to watch out for. Whether it’s a hit or miss, we get to see them get creative with their style. Some go over the top in long gowns while others take a different route with something more laidback. This usually means a simple dress or jumpsuit but in the case of Dakota Johnson, she went for something unexpected. Last week she attended the second annual Maison St-Germain party in a black blouse, heels and baggy jeans.
While other guests went for a glam ensemble, Dakota decided to tone it down in a way that was unexpected. Not only was this a bold choice, it actually worked. This outfit proved that you can dress up jeans when needed. If you’re up for the challenge, we picked out some baggy jeans for you to shop. Pick your favorite and start working on your looks.
Topshop MOTO Bleach Diamante Cropped Jeans
If you think the jeans are a little plain, try ones that have embellishments. These have wide legs and a cropped length, similar to Dakota’s. On the front are sparkly stones that will add some shine to your outfit. The rest of your look can be simple with a plain top and shoes. Available at Power Plant Mall.
Koché Striped Wide-Leg Jeans
Commit to the baggy fit with this piece. Although these have a loose fit, they are still high-rise and come up on the waist. To add a pop of color, there are red stripes along the legs and a black trim on the back pockets. Dress this up with a lace bodysuit and boots. Available on Net-a-Porter.
Mango Flared Elephant Jeans
For a darker wash of denim, cop this pair from Mango. These have a baggy fit and slits along each side of the leg. Finish your outfit off with strappy heels and an off-shoulder top. These pants may have five pockets but we still suggest bringing a clutch with your for your belongings. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Bershka Paperbag Jeans with Belt
This pair is the closest to the one Dakota had on. It’s high-waisted with a cropped length. This also has a belt to cinch in the waist and cuffs on either leg. What makes it different is the paper bag detail along the waist. Available at SM Aura Premier.
Saint Laurent Ripped Knee Baggy Jeans
Get the perfect mix between red carpet chic and edginess with ripped details on your jeans. These also have a baggy fit but the legs still have tapered finish so they don’t look sloppy. We suggest adding a belt that will match the color of your shoes when you wear these pants. Available on Farfetch.
