The polka-dot trend is catching on in a big way. Bold patterns are eye catching, graphic and a nice way to create artistically appeasing looks. This spot-on trend can be taken to the next level by layering it with alternate patterns like this one. If you’re not sure how to mix such bold patterns, slowly introduce one statement piece at a time and let that be the centerpiece of your outfit. This Fashionista’s look can easily be transitioned from day to night by adding a blazer or a pair of heels. Here is a great clip on how to mix up bold prints. It illustrates that mixing large prints and small prints is the way to go to avoid looking too overwhelming. These whimsical dots herald to most of our childhood outfits, but they are still very much feminine and not childish looking. Her grown-up accents are her gold Michael Kors watch and classic pearl studs that dress up any ladylike outfit.
The second part of this Fashionista’s outfit that I love is her Jackie O sunglasses. There is something to be said about meeting someone without seeing their eyes. After all, the eyes are the windows to your soul. Ray-Ban named one of its signature sunnies the Jackie Ohh in honour of the legendary fashion-forward first lady. Some days you might feel like being a woman of mystery and having on hand your trusty sunglasses is one way to combat any unwanted attention. Rain or shine, I carry my sunglasses close at hand.
