Dakota Johnson, better known to most as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, was spotted braving the cold New York weather on Tuesday. The actress’ attire included a red sweater worn over a straight-cut knee-length skirt, which she she topped off with black tights, a long black coat, and a dark green checkered scarf. Punctuating the mix were dark sunglasses, a structured handbag, a tote, and a pair of rugged boots.

The shoes were an unexpected choice. They were too casual for the attire, which called for something dressier like black pumps as the more appropriate footwear.

Check out the Dakota’s outfit below, then tell me if she pulled off those boots:

Well, ladies, what do you think? Did Dakota nail the look with those boots or no?  Should she have worn black pumps instead?

I guess she wanted to dress down the outfit. You can see it from the way she wore the sweater — its untucked. In doing so, however, she shortened the length of her lower body (legs) and made it even worse by wearing round-toe ankle boots.

Speaking of the boots, did you know that Dakota’s pair used to retail at an easy $149 when it came out? The boots are the “Fraankie” from Steve Madden. Here’s a closer look at them:
