Ever heard of the phrase ‘a dog looks like its owner’? Well now I can see where that came from! Everyone’s gone dotty for Dalmatian spots and the trend has been all over the catwalks. Stella McCartney even used her childhood pet; a Dalmatian named ‘Lucky’ as inspiration for her collection and projected images of the beloved canine all over the walls of her show whilst models strutted their stuff.
A brilliant way to reference this trend without going barking mad is through tights! Celebrities like Cheryl Cole, Alexa Chung, Diane Kruger and Peaches Geldof get it spot on with their dotty numbers and guess what, you can too with Gerbe Plumetis polka dot tights (pictured) at MyTights. Take a look at Cheryl’s spotty tights look here.
If you’re thinking this reminds you all too much of Cruella De Vil, don’t dismiss this trend just yet! Luella‘s S/S collection featured a cute Mini Mouse take on the trend with fat splodges rather than mini polka dots. See if you can bag your very own Mickey Mouse in Emilio Cavalini’s Capri Leggings at MyTights. Make sure you team with patent bow accessories in your hair to achieve the overall look!
To get the most out of this trend follow some of my Style Tips…
· Wear with florals or if you’re feeling fashion forward then clash it up with stripes.
· Wear them with shorts and pumps like Peaches or with a pretty little tea dress and artsy heels.
· Try them on a night out with a sporty mesh dress in a bold shade.
· Wear with contrasting socks over the top to add texture.
