How to Wear - Polka Dots

A/W 11 saw polka dots dotted all over the catwalks with designers such as Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs and Viktor and Rolf embracing polka dots on the runway.

This is a great trend to embrace this winter, either by opting for a full head to toe polka dot look by choosing a polka dot dress (like Olivia Palermo), or by pairing a polka dot blouse with a simple skirt or plain jeans (like Lauren Conrad).

However if you do not want to wear polka dots head to toe, as seen on the catwalk, then there are several ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe.

1) Tights
A great way to embrace the polka dot trend and incorporate them into your winter wardrobe is via tights. Spotted tights are a great way to keep your legs warm this winter and look trendy at the same time. Sarah Jessica Parker shows us how to work polka dot tights with a LBD (as shown above).

2) Nails
If you are not a fan of the tights and are looking for a more subtle way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe then then why not paint your nails with polka dots.

Statement shoes are trendy at the moment so why not opt for a pair of statement polka dot shoes. Katie Holmes and Jameela Jamil show how to do this in their own way (as shown above).

4) Scarves
Another great way to keep warm this winter and look trendy is opt for a polka dotted scarf. Rachel Bilson illustrates this casual look well.
