Seeing Dots

From reality to real life. Most of the time, somebody walks right in front of the camera which makes for great laughs. And people watching. It’s my favorite past time.

New York fashion week was such a blast. It was a whirlwind of rushing to and from shows, waiting endlessly on lines in heels, wearing my favorite looks, and  also, spending a lot of money on transportation. As much as New York becomes a mad traffic jam due to the throngs of attendees, another benefit is that everyone is a bit more understanding. Yet one of the my top sellers about the event, is not the circus acts, but forging connections. Furthermore, I have met so many people during the past 10 seasons of fashion week. It makes all the schlepping so much better. Seeing old friends is as much as important as making new ones. The people that work behind the scenes, the designers, deserve some kudos. Stripes and color ruled the runways. Another big trend to come out of this week? Seeing dots on every street!

Polka dots are having a major moment right now. From spots sashaying down the runways of Balenciaga and Loewe, to my favorite street style stars putting their own sartorial spin on the classic print, it’s safe to say the ubiquitous dot is making a thoroughly modern mark.

How to add playful polka dots into your real-life wardrobe

First of all, to create the look without looking overly prim à la Vivian in Pretty Woman, take inspiration from our the streets and go for supersize statement spots in a monochrome palette. or wear your specks small in a flattering silhouette. Finally, finish the look with some edgy accessories to toughen up the ultra-feminine print.
