This Autumn/Winter 2011, the trend that is most recognizable and wearable is probably the polka dot. This time around, the spots have been magnified, no longer your sweet small polka dot, these dots have been designed to be noticed. Leading the trend is Marc Jacobs, a profusion of BIG BOLD SPOTS neatly placed on top of a gorgeous colour palette. Stella McCartney also put her own spin on the spots by creating texture and turning the quirky print into a sexy one.
Polka dots is a print you have to wear with caution, only the brave and uber cool looking can do a full head to toe style without looking like an extra from the circus. A safer option would be to wear it moderately like the celebs. Style icons such as Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton have already been papped sporting the trend and when catwalks and celebrities are doing it, the high street is never far behind. Below I have put together some of my best picks from the high street, the same look but a fraction of the designer price tag!
What's your take on the trend? love it or loathe it?
