It’s no secret I am in love with Polka Dots. If you read my blog regularly, Â you might have noticed it’s a recurring pattern in my wardrobe. See here and here. Â I’m just drawn to the dashing little dot. Maybe it’s my love for Lucille Ball that lends to the love I have for polka dots. Not only did she make me laugh out loud, (Lucille Balls deserves it written out, no abbreviations) Â but she did it in a great polka dot dress. These pants make me feel a little closer to Lucy.
The Los Angeles Times remarked, “You can sign your fashion life away on the polka-dotted line, and you’ll never regret it this season.” Â I concur, and have obviously signed away. Â This season of polka dots is especially Â popular when it comes to pants! Â This happy motif is fun, feminine and whimsical, and showing up on everything from palazzo pants, to capris. Â If you are looking for an alternative to your regular black trouser, try one with a polka dot print. You are sure to be “spotted” in these pants. (Sorry…I couldn’t help it.)
Tip: Remember if you are going to do a funky spotted pant on bottom, you want to keep everything else you are wearing as simple as possible. A slinky solid bow tie blouse is a great option. Â It’s a great staple to have in any modern woman’s wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color either.
So tell your teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini to move on over, your new polka-dot pants, need some room!
