Continuing the word play, I can sign on the polka dotted line and predict that Polka dots are here for good and not just because Newly Mommyfied Duchess Kate brought them back.
For a print that goes back to the 19th century, the polka dots sure have been around for the long haul. What is surprising and impressive is that every season, we see renditions of this trend and many a times, we just recycle the old forms of this trend. Besides, when in doubt, look at Minnie Mouse for the oldest and coolest way polka dots have become a part of our daily pop culture references.
This season, River Island did this particular ribbed skirt in polka dots of the skater style which truly seemed to have stepped right out of Betty Draper a la Mad Men's closet. Well, definitely not the cut for she would not wear a skater, but that is when we talk about my style. :)
Tried to combine the charm of the old school polka dots, layered pearls and these vintage looking sunglasses with the mass appeal vibe of brights and vests. A conceptualized mish mash, if you may.
