“I’m the wearing-anything type,” Johnson responded. “I’m really a huge hoodie and sweatpants type of girl, right? I love to be comfy; I love to be cool. But I’m just getting into more, like, fewer layers, different styles, more patterns, more textures, more skirts, and things like that. I think it’s just about expressing myself more. I don’t really care what people think about; I just try to walk it in and own it because, at the end of the day, it’s my style.”
