It seems like polka dots are a big trend this Fall season. Every store I go into has something fashionable that is covered in polka dots. I do like the trend. As a matter of fact, I have some pieces that are covered in polka dots. The thing with polka dots is that you have to be careful how you incorporate with your outfit. They can be very gaudy and loud looking therefore if you have to be minimal with everything else that you wear. For instance, if I’m wearing a shirt that has polka dots on it, I will make sure that every part of my wardrobe for that particular day is as plain as possible. Polka dots are cute but they definitely can be overbearing if not worn or carried right.
A lovely example of a polka dot accessory is the Marc by Marc Jacobs “Lizzie” Dots Tote. This bag is actually very beautiful and I love the color scheme on it. The colors are very Fall looking and the whole bag in general is quite classy. However, if I were to carry this bag around I wouldn’t wear anything that had polka dots on it the days I carried this bag. The model, shown in the stock photo above, was styled beautifully. She’s wearing a fairly simple outfit and then the bag brings it up a notch. I definitely like her whole look. Like I stated above, when you incorporate polka dots in one piece of your outfit everything else has to be as simple as possible. She achieved that in her look.
Overall, the bag is super cute and it’s a great bag to carry around this Fall season! What do you think of this polka dot craze?
