Trends are for now, Dots are Forever!

Polka dots! It seems like they’ve been there forever! And aren’t they cute? And cool? And sweet? And feminine? And versatile? And fun? And playful? And somehow…timeless? They say it all and everything at once: retro, modern, pin-up, rockabilly, boho chic, glam rock, 20’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, in full bloom or quietly understated.

This season, they’ve really conquered everybody from Stella McCartney to Marc Jacobs, from Jill Stuart and Lanvin to Paul Smith and Dolce & Gabbana. The world’s most famous catwalks and designers were fully spotted, in forms, colors and cuts that nourished our imagination and filled our closets. And there’s also another positive vibe about polka dots: they remind us of the most beautiful era of femininity, those fascinating 60’s when our mothers seemed to be wearing the most amazing dresses that were ever made. They remind us of eternal beauties such as Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Lauren and so many others.

Having said all that, let’s make tomorrow night a really spotty one! Let’s pull out the best of our polka dots arsenal and play one era in fashion that we love the most! We can wear them however we want, we can go for lady like dresses or funny skirts, we can wrap a scarf around our heads or make a fine bow tie, we can go for spotty t-shirts our some statement shoes nobody we’ll manage to forget too soon. Whatever you do, wear the dots, stay cool, stay timeless!
