[Trend] Black and White Polka Dots

Stella McCartney AW11 / Oscar De La Renta SS11

Last week I went to meet Becca at the Sisley press room, and was really impressed by their upcoming AW12 stuff.  Cannot wait for more of it to hit the stores so I can show you some of the stuff (have lots of piccies) but for the moment I'll tempt you with a great polka dot dress I spotted that fits in perfectly with this post... (and is a dead ringer for the Oscar De La Renta number above) - apologies for the pants photos, I am still a newbie to all things cameras.

Polka dots are never really not featured on the runways, but this year they've been more apparent than they have for a while...  And mainly in black and white coloured outfits. Thanks to that Stella McCartney bodycon dress, and Dolce and Gabbana twisting the look with their spotty stars, the high street has decided to go all dotty and make a big thing of the look for AW12.

In the same vein, I spotted these two gorgeous spotty somethings on one of the Marie Claire team at their Marie Claire Runway party at Home House on Tuesday night.  I love the circle print - twist on the polka dot theme.  Also, I think they are really, really well priced - TS is getting a bit expensive at the moment - especially as everything good seems to sneak into their Unique ranges rather than the general collections - but the trousers are £35 and the t shirt is £34.  You could buy them both and do the whole pajama print trend... or separates with block colour or black/white combos.  Either way, I love these pieces a LOT.

I'm really loving this look, also found some fab bits at Jaeger, Hobbs and ASOS.  Enjoy!
