    Polka dot dresses to transition into Spring Summer 2015

    February 3, 2015

    Polka dots are everywhere. They’re graphic and bold, eye-catching and quirky – the perfect antidote to the dreary winter months. Brr. Beloved by iconic women from Coco Chanel to Minnie Mouse, here at Yumi HQ, we’re forever crushing over the classic print.

    As a sure-fire way to easily transition your wardrobe into spring, polka dots were seen on the spring/summer ‘15 runways of Valentino, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana and Lela Rose who all embraced the look with a feminine spin.

    A seasonless print, especially in a classic black-and-white colour palette, polka dots can transform any dull outfit into a chic, retro-inspired look.

    However you may choose to wear the print, you’ll be sure to have others spotting (sorry) your cool and playful style with our polka dot dresses.

    Styling tip: Polka dots are democratic and flexible – they work for most body shapes, and can be worn subtly or assertively. They work as well on a glamorous party dress, as a smart blouse for work. Monochrome dots with blood red accessories is a failsafe option, although mixing and matching them with other prints is an underused and striking trick.

    For these chilly days, team with tights and ankle boots and come spring, bare those legs. Oh, and don’t forget your red lippy.
