Can YOU distinguish the € 14 dotted gown from the designer model that prices € 3,000? – Each day mail
Whether at a summer BBQ or when going out with the girls, polka dots have long been the first print for fashionistas who are looking for a playful print.
Easy to put on and surprisingly versatile, a statement polka dot dress is the shortcut to an instantly memorable ensemble – and there are plenty of options this summer.
“Polka dot dresses are a timeless piece and a staple in most wardrobes,” celebrity stylist Rochelle White told FEMAIL. “They can be worn casually and rocked with sneakers, sandals, flip-flops or flats.
“The dress can also be worn with boots, Dr. Martens and heels are rocked so that it suits many occasions. Depending on the season, a denim jacket can be worn, but also blazers and Macs or rain jackets. This is always a must for many when it comes to spring / summer I think just because it’s so versatile. ‘
From Valentino to Matalan, designers have released their version of the dotted LBD in different price ranges.
Others, including French Connection and Boohoo Boutique, have cut prices on their stained dresses to attract shoppers looking for their next post-Freedom Day shopping.
