What do you think about polka dots on accessories and clothing? I am always very fond of polka dots. In my opinion, polka dots add a fun element to any design and reminds me of some vintage styles.
For Spring 2014, we are seeing a lot of polka dots designs on accessories and clothing. Tops, skirts, dresses, handbags, and shoes are all making appearances this season. Each year we see variety of pattern designs trend and fade away, but I know polka dots will always be popular.
One of my favorite polka dots items for the season is 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Polka Dots Blouse (available in bone beige and black/white)($501.96). I like this blouse in both colors. I can see myself wearing the blouse in bone beige with my skinny jeans during the day, and wearing the blouse in black/white with short skirt on a night out with friends. The good thing about a polka dots top like this is that it will always be a must-keep piece in my wardrobe.
I think accessories with polka dots can be fun. For example, Mika Contrasting Leather Polka Dot Pumps by Sophia Webster ($896.89) combines with 3-D flowers, and the Polka Dots Shopper Tote by Marni ($692) has bold prints. If you want to spice up your outfits, such accessories would certainly help.
Besides being fun, polka dots can be vintage. A good example of vintage style would be Dolce & Gabbana’s Polka Dots Dress for Spring 2014. This fitted polka dots silhouette with square neck reminds me a dress my mom had when I was growing up. The Dolce & Gabbana polka dots dress would be perfect from day to night.
