Get Dotty - Dots are Hot this Season

DOTS and spots are a BIG TREND for Spring 2009.

A flurry of dots would be seen in stores come spring.

Polka dots are classic, but this season's dots have been given a fresh twist and this modern interpretation is very stylish and chic. This Spring, you would see varied twisted versions of polka dots for a fresh and trendy look.

House of Holland Spring 2009 Collection - presenting bold dots
In their Spring 2009 Collections designers added their artistic hues to the spots in their runway collections. The traditional black and white spots were mixed with multi-colored dots - there were cheery retro circles of all sizes at Michael Kors, floaty colourful psychedelic patterns at Jaeger, Marni’s Consuelo Castiglioni turned the pattern into lace skirts, House of Holland gave an interesting twist with large, gaping polka dots in rank and file printed on or cut out on the entire jean, and Giles Deacon offered smudged spots on shift dresses.
Get a dotted dress (they look delicious), cardigan, skirt or a blouse. For a simpler version, a dotted vest (in polka dot) can also make a style statement. Click here to buy polka dot dresses (USA).

Not to forget, polka dot lingerie. They would be fun and sexy.

And hey, all the fun is not just for the girls.
Spring 2009 has brought polka dots for men too.

So guys, match your dotted shirt with your girl's dress, or just wear one to find a match!!!!

Thanks Katherine for reminding. I had been thinking of adding some celebrity pictures wearing dots.

Demi Moore at the 59th Berlin International Film Festival

Demi Moore wore a strapless navy and white polka dot Micheal Kors Spring 2009 dress with red pumps at the Berlin International Film Festival. Because polka dots are bold and already make a statement, you should be careful in your accessory choice. Demi looks stylish with simple and minimal accessory. This classic and clean look suits her completely.
Update: 26th March 2009
We knew that dots would be a big trend in Spring/Summer, but looks like this trend would be popular even after Summer 2009. Dots were seen in the Gucci Fall 2009 and Valentin Yudashkin Winter 2009/2010 Collection. Love Black Dots on a Blue dress from the Gucci Collection below.

So girls what you are waiting for? Get Dotty Dress, top or accessory. Your dots will be popular in summers as well as coming Winter.
