Like plaid, polka dots are all over the place this year. Yet dots aren’t as classic as plaid, so they hold a special place in the Fall 2011 trend cycle. Here are some ways to wear the perky print.
The look to the left, from the Jeremy Laing Fall 2011 show, pairs an oversized dot sweater with a maxi skirt. If you’re on the petite side, though, long skirts might overwhelm your frame. Instead try a mini or a pair of shorts to lengthen to the look of your legs.
Pairing cut-offs with tights is an easy way to stretch your summer gear into fall. When in doubt go with solid black tights, but if you’re feeling adventurous layer it on thick with more polka dot pattern.
The sweater in the look below is a perfect staple sweater because of it’s neutral palette. Go up a size from what you normally wear for a slouchier more relaxed style like the runway look.
Singer and TV personality Cheryl Cole is a good example of a petite (she’s 5’3?) in polka dots. She chose this dotted mini from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel for an event in Chicago earlier this year. The star styled the dress with wedges and a ponytail for a look that’s simple but fun & pretty.
Check out the outfit below for an option that’s more affordable than Cheryl’s designer dress, and with some ways to warm it up for fall.
