Currently Loving: Polka Dots

9 Feb

The Polka dot is grabbing my attention right now. It’s the classic print that makes its return to the fashion spotlight over and over again. If you’re a polka dot lover, there’s something to get excited about because you’re about to start seeing some pretty polka dot pieces in the shops again.

While it’s not a major trend for Spring, there were enough pieces from designers in the Resort 2011 collections to create a mini trend.

I picked out my favourites from Resort and checked out some pretty polka dot pieces to stick in the wishlist.

Sonia Rykiel

Now there are dozens of ways to wear this trend and it’s exceptionally beautiful when combined with a bright, solid, preferably contrasting colour. I’ll be very careful combining it with another print, the objective is not to look like a clown but to retain that sleek chic style. The best way to wear with another print is to combine with larger prints a la Marc Jacobs (Resort 2011). Just make sure the style works before you walk out that door, lol.

Check out some beautiful pieces to get you fantasizing.
