Trends We Love: Polka Dots

April 18, 2009

demi_moore_polka_dot_dress_2We love a good pattern & polka dots may just be the happiest sort of one there is. While rather retro when it comes to fashion & design, polka dots are making a comeback again this season.

Fun & flirty, yet bold, polka dots are a great way to work a pattern into your usual wardrobe. We love when they are paired as pink/white & black/white (like this darling Victoria’s Secret bathing suit).

A couple words of caution, however, when it comes to this trend. Remember we’re not talking Betty Crocker / Suzzy Homemaker polka dots here. And also, patterns must always be done in moderation. So pick one piece in your outfit and let it stand out. Polka dots are great for skirts, dresses, tops & accessories.polka-dots1
