It may be too early to call polka dots the print of the season, but surely we’ve been seeing a lot of spots. In the past week, stars like January Jones, Anne Hathaway and Lucy Hale have all given the dotted print a go.
Looking back, spots have long been an ingénue favorite (see: Brigitte Bardot, who seemed to wear the pattern in every incarnation including capris, circle skirts and light sweaters accented with dotted bows) and has often served as the quirkier alternative to that other classic: nautical stripes. This early spring season, though, the playful pattern comes alive in a variety of sizes and colors. Go retro as Jones did with a neat set of blue and white (the messy updo and refined lip adds to alluring getup); play the classicist like Hathaway who wears hers splashed on a jumpsuit; or do it dressed-down like Lucy Hale with a flirty camisole. It seems with spots, you can’t go wrong this season.
