Cloths full of spots
Don’t you feel terrified when you hear the words in and out? In today’s fashion when everything is popular, and when trendy is no longer synonym for style, I consider words like these useless. Unless you are trying to sell something.
Take for example polka dots pattern. The pattern that is named after the dance of the same name and originates from 19th century, was very popular in the middle of last century, so the '50s girls were those very fond of sweetheart dresses that had glance of candies and rainbows. After the 50s the pattern wasn’t the star in the trendland, but is always present everywhere, from runaways and streets to shops.
Polka dot is frequent pattern for light summer dresses or blouses, but we somehow forget to wear it in colder seasons. That’s why this season I like to see around in shops tights in this pattern that on simple black or white dresses with bit of jewelry will look very chic. With polka dot blouses that are ideal for office but also for rendezvous, we will be very feminine. And in the shirt or tunic dresses with carefully picked details as buttons or collars, we will be very cute. And these little spots will add vivacity to this very sleepy, snowy and rainy wintertime.
