Circles, spots, and polka dots were all over the runway this Fall. Models for designers Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney were decked from head to toe in polka dots.
With the wide variety and versatility of of polka dotted apparel seen on the runway this fall, polka dots are gaining a new sophistication from dresses and stockings to hats and handbags.
I must say, in the past I haven’t been a fan of polka dots – they’ve always seemed childish, but perhaps it was just the way they were presented.
These new styles (particularly Stella McCartney’s use of sheer polka dotted fabrics) present polka dots in so many different varities that it’s almost impossible not to find something you like. I might have to start out with a subtle hint such as polka dot stockings before I hit the big time and go for a dress.
Wait – does this mean we can say goodbye to summer’s parade of stripes?
