Weekly Obsession

Now, I know 99% of us will never wear these kind of dresses.  However, you can make it work in your own style.  Try a blouse, and maybe just a little glitz, like I did.  Then you too will be on trend for fall!!!

How to wear this season's polka dots

Go for a classic design. Invest in a timeless outfit that'll last season after season. Rock the dotty trend in a clean A-line dress or skirt, or a sheer chiffon blouse in a neutral color such as black, white or navy.

Add a sexy touch. For a look that's totally on-trend this season, forget girly polka-dot frocks and think sexy. Look for details such as a plunging neckline, shimmery embellishments or cut-out panels.

Look for small-scale patterns if you're petite. Large polka prints will overwhelm your frame.

Stick to just one element. Head-to-toe pattern may work on the runway, but in real life it can look OTT. So wear just one dotty piece at a time and keep the rest of your look simple

How to wear sequins and embellishments

Stick to one embellished item per outfit and let it take centerstage by keeping the rest of your look as neutral as possible.

Skip the jewelry and sparkly accessories. A sequined dress is your statement accessory. Don't overload with other blingy accoutrements.

Opt for darker or subtly-toned sequins. Black, navy, emerald and pewter are always classy and wearable for most occasions. Reserve bright ones for Christmas parties.

Tone down with low-key pieces. How do you rock sequins and beadings on casual days? Just team the embellished piece with something laid-back. For example, pair a sequined jacket with a simple tee and jeans to keep your overall look less formal and effortlessly chic.

Rock the trend with an embellished accessory. If sequin numbers are too over-the-top for you, a pair of flats with paillette details or a jewel-encrusted bag are a subtle way to try the trend.
