Polka dots were all spotted all over fall’s runways, from Gucci, Paul Smith, and Marc Jacobs, this classic print was all over. Now, if you don’t want to run to the next Gucci boutique to snag some new clothes, we’ve got a solution for you that’s both chic and affordable. Motel, the coveted UK brand, has some über cute pieces that would incorporate well into your fall wardrobe.
Sticking with classic black, Motel gives us the Savvy knee length skirt, the Savannah Dress, and the Sissy Shirt. If you’re looking for a more indie vibe throw on the Savvy and pair it with a crop top and a cardigan. With fall’s other trend of full, longer skirts, this kill two birds with one very fashionable stone! Try the 40’s inspired Savannah on date night paired with a gorgeous coat and red lips. This will definitely give you that screen siren look, without being costume-y.
Finally, the Sissy shirt is one of our favorite pieces. With its sheer design, it would be perfect to wear with a bandeau. Also, the versatility of the piece means that you can pair is with jeans, tuck it into some high-waisted pants, or wear it with a mini skirt for a night out.
As you’ll see in the shots from the runway, polka dots don’t just mean Minnie or your niece’s favorite party dress. This fall brings a sophisticated take on the classic polkas and throws them with both men’s inspired pieces, as well as mixing it with textures. Be creative when putting your outfit together, try anyone of the Motel pieces for a subtle transition into this trend, and see where it’ll take you!
