STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dots On Dots On Dots

This season has been defined by bright colors and bold prints, and D.C. Fashionistas are taking note. Monotone apparel has been replaced by funky stripes, vivid florals and dotted graphics that pop with vintage flare. It's out with the drab and in with the fab and the trendsetters of GW are showing their spots. Everyone else, take note!

I found this lovely lady cutting through the GW medical school square on her way to Starbucks. I was immediately drawn to the intense color contrast of her outfit. She paired her spotted silk MINKPINK shirt and scarlet twill Rich and Skinny pants. These two pieces complement each other perfectly because they both stand out on their own but still create cohesiveness in the ensemble. The black and white offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to pairing with other vivid shades, while the fun dotted print breaks up the rest of the outfit’s solid hues. This versatility makes the spotted top fantastic to pair with this spring’s brightly colored pants and shorts. The outfit is perfected by the way this Fashionista loosely tucked the blouse into her pants, thereby highlighting the distinctive silhouettes of each piece. She added a Michael Stars skinny belt to polish the look. Repetto Ballet Flats and an Autumn Cashmere cardigan top off the ensemble.

Find yourself drawn to this trend hot spot? If so, you’re in luck! Polka dots are one of the must-have looks of the season, so there are plenty of choices. If you are looking for versatile dots similar to this featured Fashionista, Equipment Femme and J.Crew blouses will be great additions to your spring wardrobe. If your tastes are closer to the girly, vintage look, both ModCloth and Marc by Marc Jacobs will have plenty of options you will be sure to love. If you sport edgy apparel and love rocking unique pieces, State & Lake stocks beautiful dotted dresses and NASTY GAL has tons of dotted frocks at money-savvy prices. Current/Elliott also just came out with an awesome pair of green polka dotted pants that are sure to be spot on!
