I blame my grandmother! My love of furniture, antiques, and now polka dots, all of it comes from her… Let me explain… She’s the funniest, most cheerful 81 years old, turning 82 at the end of this month, and there’s a tradition in our family that for her birthdays, we’d try and present her with polka dot themed gifts. Anything goes as long as it’s dotted: pots and pans, porcelain, clothing, anything. So as I was considering some things for her upcoming birthday, I felt inspired to make a roundup of some of MY favorite polka dots. On dresses, that is, since it’s ¨Fashion Wednesday¨ here on the blog 🙂
So let’s start with this retro-inspired chiffon dress that Kate Moss wears in Istanbul, for Vogue. Channeling her inner Marilyn. PERFECTION!
Above, playful polka dots, boat neck and pockets, and the ¨good girl¨ vibe. Comfortable and great for any body type. I have one like it myself 🙂
Not as comfortable, Eva Mendes’ body con dress is very feminine for sure. I like how she pairs it with pink pumps and candelabra earrings.
My favorite thing about Reese’s look are her accessories. Love the bags and LOVE LOVE those fiery red pumps, they bring the entire outfit to life.
A bolder look, pencil skirt and polka dot button down shirt, great for date night!
And then there’s swimwear too:
Etsy – Vintage Style Two-Piece
Anthropologie – Seafolly Polka Dot One-piece
Some of my favorite sources for retro-inspired polka dot dresses are Lindy Bop and Etsy, but depending on the season you can find this playful pattern in any label. I just hope you love dots as much as we do!
