Polka dot is HUGE this season!
Ten days ago I was on my way to meet a friend for a pre Christmas catch up over lunch, all these polka dot dresses in the fashion windows I walked by, seemed screaming at me: ‘polka dot polka dot polka dot polka dot….’
Then I came home, after making myself a cup of tea and went through my ‘news feed’ from Facebook… A photo of supermodel Eva Herzigova wearing a red dress with black polka dots on (she stood next to Stefano Gabbana) in front of a Christmas tree pop into my sight. Soon seeing another picture of George Clooney appearing in black and white polka dot shirt and suit (Oh YES! The polka dot on polka dot ensemble!!) on the cover of up coming W magazine…
Well, let me tell you that was a lot of polka dots to take in in one day!
Years ago, a female friend of mine once asked me:
“Do you like wearing polka dots?”
‘Of course.’ I replied. ‘What a silly question!’ I thought.
Well, it turned out that this friend of mine didn’t like them, she just “didn’t get polka dots” – according to her – at all!
Then that whole afternoon we fell into a ‘deep’ conversation about polka dots.
Yes, deep. I thought I liked the polka dot in fashion and that’s all. Little did I know that, after having been thrown all these detailed polka dot questions by her, such as: “What colour polka dots on what colour fabric?” “Large? Medium? Small? Or tiny polka dots?…” By the end of our conversation on this very subject, I ended up coming up with this conclusion which, I now call it – ‘How I like my polka dots in fashion!’
And here’s how I like them:
1) Black polka dots on white fabric and/or white polka dots on black, any size of dots doesn’t matter.
2) Tiny black polka dots on black or white sheer fabric.
3) Tiny white polka dots on white or black sheer fabric.
4) Yellow small or tiny polka dots on white garments.
5) Small or tiny mixed colour polka dots on white fabric.
You may say that we must had been so bored that afternoon. However, wasn’t that something interesting to find out that not all polka dot garments are my couple of tea?!!!
It made perfect sense that why my polka dot clothes at home were either black dots on white or white dots on black.
Do you like wearing polka dots? If you are in the mood for it this season, what combination would you go for?
Perhaps now I’ve got you thinking… 😉
