Dakota Fanning has that off-beat style that I always find intriguing. Rarely will you see the young actress sport a super polished look when she’s on the streets (red carpet appearances are a whole different thing, of course). But strangely, she pulls off whatever outfit she wears with ease and nonchalance.
While out and about with her boyfriend, Jamie Strachan, over the weekend, Dakota hit three different notes with her getup by going casual, cute, and feminine all at once. The blond cutie wore a pair of flowy denim shorts (a skort, basically) paired with a loose black tee tucked underneath.
What I found interesting was how she finished the ensemble. She capped off the mix with a baby blue Celine crossbody, a cute rockabilly headwrap, and some black Superga sneakers. I’m no Superga fan, but I found the combination she put together really easy and breezy, and now I can’t stop thinking about getting a pair of Supergas for myself.
Check out Dakota’s style then tell me if you approve:

Well, what do you think?
Some may say it’s sloppy, but I think the outfit has a lot of potential. If you don’t like how laid-back it looks, you can always grab pieces that are a little more structured. Here’s a combination I put together that you might like using a more flattering pair of shorts, and a tee that isn’t too loose:
Shorts: Robert Roderiguez Chambray Track Shorts, $225 / Purse: Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Crossbody, $156 (was $195) / Shirt: J Brand Kiki Crew Neck Tee, $90 / Scarf: Born Free Marni Silk Scarf, $58 / Eyewear: MARC by Marc Jacobs Cat Eye Sunglasses, $98
Dakota’s black Superga sneakers are a celebrity fave. Among the famous faces spotted sporting them are the Olsen twins, as well as Leandra Medine of the Man Repeller. To purchase a pair of these sporty kicks, simply click the buy button below or Google them online. They feature thick rubber soles, a lace-up design, and machine-washable canvas uppers. They retail at an easy $65 so grabbing a pair should not make you feel guilty.
