Through much research, I have come up with the conclusion that the origin of the polka dot is unknown as what came first the chicken or the egg. Perhaps the most historically referenced polka dotted wearer was Minnie Mouse. Since at least that point in history, through vintage and new fashion, the polka dot has remained constant and beloved. So when this year’s fashion feature of the oh so amazing dot graced the fashioned world, we were only so happy to welcome it home.
1- I believe that the white or black dot looks good on just about everything. But my best dotted find so far this season has been a pair of cream colored pumps with black polka dots. They are simply adorable. Recently on my trip to Las Vegas, I had the occassion to wear them and they did create quite a stir! A definate must have this season.
2- When wearing polka dots, I think it is best to chose one article of clothing, accessory or pair of shoes to wear as a statement. This fashion style is bold and is best when it stands alone.
3- If polka dots are too bold for you, that’s ok. Accessories are a nice way to introduce the look in a subtle way. I am always looking to make a fashion statement so I would pair these lovely glasses with a cute polka dotted sweater or skirt. But if you are looking for a simplier look that stay with a cute pair of glasses, purse or even a chiffon scarf.
4- Pearls are a great accent to wear with polka dots because when paired with this style they stand out and capture the feeling. I love wearing my big chunky pearls especially because they tie the look together and make a classy statement.
5-While at the Las vegas Magic show I had the delight of sitting in a Q & A session of other fashion bloggers. There was a fabulous young woman who blogged to 14-24 year olds. She had pink blond hair, a line of flowers in her hair, and the most fabulous pair of polka dotted tights. They would probably not be something I would find myself in, but it just was another example of how polka dots are everywhere…for you to where in whatever capacity you are most comfortable.
