The phrase hot spot has taken on a whole new meaning for SS18, as polka dots have emerged as the print of the season. With Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman as your muse (hallelujah), accentuate the dots’ retro overtones by opting for more playful designs, such as ruffled skirts and dresses. Bringing these old-school pieces up to speed is all a matter of styling. Take a leaf out of Italian stylist Diletta Bonaiuti’s book and toughen up a demure dress with biker boots, or channel Camille Charrière and give your look an urban edge by adding an of-the-moment belt bag, worn across the body. These pieces are perfect for layering – add an oversized sweater or bomber jacket for a hi/lo effect.
