One of our favourite trends, both during spring and summer, was that sweet little polka dot! Every year, the pattern sparkles endlessly in the sunshine, only drifting as the Autumn leaves begin to fall! Polka dots are one of my favourite patterns, especially when I want to embrace that innocent 1950’s sweetheart-look; the one that none of us can deny is truly beautiful. In this post, I want to explore some of my favourite polka dot garments that are pirouetting happily in our high-streets.

New Look’s Floral and Spot Edition
This combination twisted our two favourite spring-time trends together and helped create a beautiful collection, that’s perfect for all those girls searching for that ‘jeans and a nice top’ dream!
That pop of orange illuminates those polka dots, and adds a sense of whimsy and playfulness to the look. Much like our favourite 1950s polka dot midi skirts, this piece is a statement, and can be paired with the simplest pair of jeans and gentle wedges. Accessories can shimmer alongside it, acting like a beautiful harmony that elevates the lead singer, without overshadowing her. Maybe a sweet gold could pick-up the shimmering undertones of the orange flowers in the top to help keep you sparkling all day long.

Dorothy Perkins’ Frilly White Dress
Polka dot dresses are a true weakness of mine, especially when they are teamed with frills! This Dorothy Perkins’ dress is playful and casual, yet sophisticated all at once! For a casual summer’s lunch, to a flashy event; this dress would do wonders! With just a simple switch of the shoe, and a bobble or two, you’ll be ready for anything! As shown in the picture, this dress allows you to be creative with colour! A bright clutch, be it red, yellow or green, would look breathtaking with this dress, and can transform your entire image. (Don’t forget, a bright red, or pink, lip would look gorgeous with this look!)
