Fresh Picks to Follow: Polka Dot, Dot, Dot

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved polka dots.  Not only are polka dots fun, feminine and whimsical, but there is also something sort of 50’s glam about them.  You have to agree that polka dots can hardly be called a trend since every year they get reinvented with a funky and playful twist.  

Did you know that the polka dots trend has been influenced by lady bugs, which in increasingly popular in both the spring and summer?  I’ve also noticed that some of the major designers are using polka dots for their upcoming Spring/Summer 2011 collections.   

Style Tip: Polka dots can be tricky to wear, so be cognizant of your proportions and to the size of the dots.  Smaller dots seem to be the ultimate solution if you wish to visually polish your figure and get rid of the visible beauty flaws. However, larger spots create a bulky and more prominent effect.  Therefore, if you are not totally pleased with your body shape, then skip the large dots.

Polka dots are among the timeless designs used to decorate dresses, pants and other clothing items.   Please check out my top 10 polka dot designs below.  Let me know what you think about the polka dot phenomenon and Anthropologie’s new polka dot items.

  1. I added the Take Action Dress to my Wish List last night. Very similar to The Twinkle, Twinkle Dress from last year. But this print I love. Anthro Sister Love, Laura

  2. Thanks for stopping by Laura. I added the Take Action dress to my Wish List too. I haven't tried it on yet...so I hope the fit works out for me.
