Fall Fashion—Polka Dots

Dress: Maison Scotch Iconic Polka Dot Dress $99, Cameron Marks. Cape: Synergy, $111. Shoes: model's own.

Polka dots are all the rage this season, as was seen in the Miu Miu collection for fall. Here, we tie in the dark blue trend (also popular for fall) and blend it with polka dots, showcasing a beautiful, retro-inspired dress by Maison Scotch. Make it your own by throwing in unexpected orange high heels, an orange cape from Synergy, and a bold lip color. (Orange and dark blue are always a striking color combination.) It's flirty, romantic and mysterious—perfect for a date night.

Fall 2013 Trend—Polka Dots

Untitled #54

When I saw the Miu Miu Fall '13 collection, I was wowed by the line's bold use of polka dots. I've always loved a good polka dot (when done well in a high fashion sort of way). And while I can't reach for the beautiful pink number featured above, I can certainly start incorporating my love of polka dots into my wardrobe more. The key here is to have fun and try something different. Mix and match your dots in an unpredictable way. The success of the look is tying in the fine details. Start with a silhouette such as a polka dot dress then add vibrant accessories. Be sure to add a pop of color and watch your outfit come to life.
