Style + Item of the Week

Item of the Week: All the Polka Dots

The transition from winter to spring is always a challenge clothing wise.  It’s time to put the wool away, but it’s not yet time for cotton voile.  You’re ready to shop for spring, but you still need to dress for inclement weather.  It’s a mess.

One solution is polka dots.  They’re fun like spring, but in a neutral color palette, dark like winter.

This Mango dress is a stunner.  Can you say desk to date night?  The dots are big and bold, the color palette is neutral, the shape is appropriate for many occasions.  And the price tag?  Just $80.

Want, need, must have.  It’s a dress I’ll “throw on” and feel great about on busy mornings.

If you have a bit more to spend, this navy Ganni dress has a Pretty Woman look to it.  Topshop also has a playful wrap dress.  Petite?  Try this fit-and-flare from ASOS.  Plus-size? This ruffle trim dot dress is a lot of fun.

Looking for tops? Talbot’s has their Perfect button-up in a dotted print (plus and petite).  This Need Supply Co shirt in sheer Georgette is wonderful.  I also like this white, dotted wrap top from Club Monaco.  For something under-$100, try this Fifth Label ruffle sleeve top.

For something more avant garde, I just purchased this RIXO blouse is a slightly crazy green and white print.  It’s a splurge, but something about it spoke to me.

Only in the mood for dotted accessories? I adore this $13 scarf from Target with a varied dot print.  This Fossil crossbody bag is casual and modern.
