Remember when Ashley Olsen made wedge ankle boots look cool again? Well, Dakota Johnson just stepped out in the summer version of the wedge trend, and it just might convince you to resurrect the look. Photographed in New York City, Johnson took the platform wedge sandal trend for a spin and made it look surprisingly modern.

Her new outfit is insanely easy to re-create: just a silky tank tucked into high-waisted straight-leg jeans, a leather clutch, and the pièce de résistance—strappy wedges. If you're still not convinced of the look, you might want to take note of how chic brands like Chloé and Christian Louboutin are interpreting the wedge trend for 2018. Scroll down to see Johnson's outfit and shop wedges for yourself.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 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.
