Dakota Johnson Wore a Blazer as a Dress With the 2022 Version of Naked Shoes

Sometimes when we talk about a certain trend as having "come back," our readers might disagree and say that it never really went away. Indeed, it's a very valid argument since fashion ebbs and flows constantly. And no, we don't take it personally when you have a different opinion, because that's the beauty of fashion: Everyone sees it differently.

The so-called "naked shoe" trend with clear plastic elements (aka, PVC or vinyl) would definitely fit into this category. We covered the trend all the time circa 2018, and then last year we saw celebrities wearing them again. While I'm tempted to say that the PVC look is back for 2022, others might contend that it's been holding steady all these years. Whatever the case may be, Dakota Johnson is about to make you want to try out a pair.

Photographed in New York City, she wore an Area blazer dress and pointy-toe Jimmy Choo pumps with a clear plastic ankle strap and vamp. The crystal embellishments at the tip of the toe make these shoes particularly current for 2022—we're calling it the princess shoe trend because it's reminiscent of Cinderella's glass slippers.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
