Trend Spotter

Polka dot, spots, dots, whatever you wish to call them, this is the print that will get you noticed this Autumn, with designers such as Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs showing us how amazing it can look.

Following suit the highstreet and online stores have gone dotty too, covering our casual wear, work wear and evening wear in spots. So no matter what the occasion you'll have rails of choice. But the scary part can be figuring our what will work for your shape. If this print is going to get you noticed then you want it to be for all the right reasons. Here's How To Wear Polka Dots

Hourglass Figures look best in an all over print allowing your entire curvacious body be the centre of attention. The fitted skirt on the below dress will hug your hips, the low neckline compliments your full chest and the sexy sheer sleeves add the finishing touch to this glamorous dress.

Straight Figures can also wear an all over print so as not to draw attention to any particular area. Select a dress like this one from Doo-Lally which gives the impression of curves. It has a high neckline for the illusion of bigger boobs, elasticated waist and slight volumn at the hips for a feminine shape.

Top Heavy Figures need to wear print on their bottom half teamed with a block colour for the top. The fullness of this skirt will balance out your broad shoulders and the short lenght will showcase your slim legs.

Bottom Heavy Figures (Pear Shape) need to do the opposite, wearing print on top and a block colour on bottom. This will draw attention away from your fuller hips and thighs and keep all eyes on your slimmer top half.
