FALL 101: Polka Dots are in for trend

Stella McCartney Polka Dot cut-out dress

Let’s just call Fall 2011The Revival of Print! I’ve already documented the comeback of plaid, the wild return of leopard print, and the dazzling delight of stars – so we can gather, print is in for the season!

As much as I’m in love with leopard print this season, I am similarly in love with polka dots for the fall!  Polka dots are fun, fashionable, and show that you aren’t scared of print. Just like leopard print for the fall, polka dot print can be seen on so many items: bags, blazers, shirts, and dresses, just to name a few. Plus, polka dots are easily controllable because Fall’s trend is toward black/white combo of dots and that’s easy to style. Don’t be afraid, let your dots be big or little, you’ll still be on point for adding this bit of glitz to your wardrobe.

Below are two ways to wear the same polka dot blouse. You can wear polka dot prints to work by dressing down the busy print with a simple pencil skirt and black pumps. The beret adds a bit of whimsy when you got to lunch.

The second look is for going out on the town. The pop of color adds that touch of chic without trying too hard, while the blazer gives you the sophistacted layered look that fall desires. You are looking good!
