I love polka dots. I don’t know when or where the love started, but it’s there, has infiltrated my handbags, shoes, and most definitely my clothes.
So it goes without saying that it has also infiltrated the Betty Le Bonbon fabric selection on a number of occasions. Indeed, all our first skirts were polka dot fabrics and a variety of different colour ways.
The way I see it, polka dots are the ‘neutral’ of printed fabrics. Quirky, fun and visually interesting … without being too in your face or outlandish (having said that, when it came to my grandfather’s funeral I had to choose between a black with red polka dot swing dress, and an almost inappropriately short LBD – I went with the short LBD, feeling the polka dot swing dress from Vivien of Holloway was a little too fun for a funeral … unless it’s my funeral, in which case, I’d like it on the record that everyone is to wear polka dots). They’re a great choice for people who are looking to change it up from the standard solid colours and neutrals and want to introduce something a little more bold and patterned into their wardrobe.
If you’re looking for fun and summery … polka dots are always a great choice. We recently sent Betty Le Bonbon model Meredith a selection of our polka dotted swing and circle skirts, and here’s the fun and sassy results!
