Fall 2011 Trend: Polka Dots

Currently Trending: One Polka Dot Blouse, Three Ways!

Playful polka dots were — ahem, spotted on a few of our favorite runways for Fall at Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, and Stella McCartney. We fell head over heels for this adorable pattern and wanted to push the trend a little further by layering different size polka dots together. The key to this look is getting a pretty printed top that can act as a basic and layering contrasting dot prints via cardigans, skirts, and handbags. Just watch to see how we style this polka-dot blouse three different ways.

Appreciating this vid! I purchased a polka dot skirt yesterday (white and flowy with large blue polka dots) and was looking for a top for it today, didn't expect to go with a polka dot blouse (blue with small white polka dots) but that's exactly what i did. Hours later (right now) I wondered if it was too much and came upon this video. I don't usually follow rules, not because I have anything against them but I usually just go with what I feel good in and what I think looks good. But, jumping into the unfamiliar territory of polka dots I'm glad to have this affirmation! Wearing it Saturday night with white pumps! :)
