Classics - Polka dot or Gone dotty

Spotty chic

You know how sometimes you come across an image and think, "I want to look like that".  This is how I feel about this chic, young lady above.  If anyone is in London at the moment, you will have experienced the London monsoon that happened this morning..I still have soaking wet feet which isn't an ideal way to start the morning.  Even though I have my long awaited Summer break from Saturday, the weather is making me feel schizophrenic..still need to be making the most of my Summer purchases whilst longing and actually needing Autumn/ Winter buys.
Where Marc Jacobs leads, others will follow. I heart Cruella .

Dots, polka dots, dalmatian dots etc are going to be a big trend next season..this season...I've lost it already. They're a classic and work beautifully in the day or evening. Possibly the least scary print, a classic navy/black and white is always a winner.  Take some fashion inspiration from the following images and hit the shops..just take an umbrella and sunblock.

My new Winter coat from DVF..well not actually but my do I want it.
Ashley Olsen working dots as evening wear.
Kirsten Dunst dips a toe in the trend with this discreet black and white top. Perfect day to evening outfit.
Full on dotty evening wear from Olivia Palermo who mastered two trends in one with this pretty, mullet-hemmed dot-print dress by Bensoni.
Am mannish vibe at Paul Smith was enlivened by a dot motif on these lovely cropped trews!
And finally..Alexa, ahead of the style curve with some enviable Celine arm candy too.


  1. Olivia and Alexa look amazing - I'm a massive fan of all things dotty. Love love LOVE that DVF coat as well. Oh well, once I marry well or win the lottery, it will be mine! xxx

  2. Have to say I'm kinda loving the Olsen look too...or is the weather affecting my reason??x

  3. Spots (and stripes) are definitely the way forward! Love Kiki's look! And that Paul Smith collection was one my favourites of the season.


  4. It's nice to have a wee change from stripes I think..although they still form about 50% of my tops! They're just so easy!x

  5. Oh, I'd love to have a navy silk blouse with little white polka dots!

  6. I'm really enjoying small polka dots in navy and white:)
