Gone Dotty

Move over stripes, polka dots are having their moment this autumn.  The trend was seen on the runways at Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and M Missoni, but of course it's just as accessible on the high street.

The Celebs

Wow what an outfit! I can't really find the words to say, so make of it what you will.  In any case, the top is remarkably similar to the Warehouse dress above.

Mollie King pays a little nod to the dotted trend.

Beyoncé rocked up in this Marc Jacobs number, about £1,187.  Not the singer's best wardrobe choice in my opinion - the colouring is completely wrong for her complexion, and her hair and accessories are completely misplaced with a quirky dress like this.

My Way

Tea Dress -  H! by Henry Holland - was £38 now £28.50 - (25% off)

Although tea dresses are very summery, they can easily be accessorised for autumnal evenings with the right heels and bags, see Daisy and Alexa above.

 Lipsy culottes - now £20 was £35 - (43% off) - buy

These shorts are loud! Keep accessories plain and minimal.

 Warehouse blouse - now £20 was £38 - (47% off) - buy

Spotted + sheer + peter pan collar = spot on! If you're brave, wear as styled above, but I'd wear a black cami underneath.  Coloured jeans are perfect to offset a very dark top-half.

Kaliko spotted scarf - now £17.50 was £25 - (30% off) - buy
Tie it on your handbag, or around your shorts/jeans à la Mollie King.  (Or even around your neck)
