Trend: Polka Dots

I've been looking at the Fall 2011 runway shows...again...recently to see what's going on as I get ready for the fall.  One look that kept appearing on runways (Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenburg) was polka dots, wearable  looks that can be easily translated to any fashionista's budget.  I'm not that big into polka dot clothing, I'm much more of an accessories chick when it comes to any trend.  


Polka dots can be fun and super cute when worked with the correct way, a head to toe polka dot ensemble would just look...gross.  SO, I've put together a few clothing options, that I think make a statement for this fall trend...but won't make you look stupid. 


Lauren Conrad seems to be having a moment, so I'll start with this dress.  I love the color, it's perfect for transitioning into the fall season.  I'd wear this to happy hour or dinner with my girls, and pair it with simple accessories so the focus can be on the dress.  
Shop the look here. $189.99
I also really love this dress by UK favorite, Asos.  You can dress this up or down with whatever accessories you choose.  I think going with a gold set of bangles would look awesome, and if you really wanna spice it up a bit, go with bright colored heels or flats.  AND, extra plus...it's on sale!
Shop the look here! $41.37


This first shirt is from Forever 21, of course they're all up on the polka dot craze.  Anyway, I love this because it looks super comfy and would be great for an everyday look.  I like the slouchy fit, if you wear it to class then wanna go out after, just dress it up with jewelry and it'll look a little more than just the minimum casual.  For this price, you really can't beat it.
Shop the look here! $12.80


I couldn't get the picture of this next item to save!!  But, I like this shirt by Ark & Co I found on Piperlime a lot because you can pair it with dark skinny jeans or jeggings, and make it pop with chunky jewelry.  It's simple, but the bow adds something different, and it's not too much. As it gets cooler out, just put on a light cardigan and you're set.


I'm having major computer problems right now, so I'm gonna do the accessories and shoes tomorrow!!

  1. The Polka Dots trend is so IN and the best thing; you can mix it with other forms like graphic prints :)
