Seeing Spots

As we transition from winter into the early days of spring, we've been noticing one trend that early adopters seem to be gravitating towards: Polka dots. If you're planning on rocking some dots, you can't go wrong wearing an inky blue option with small scale spots. They're currently popping up on the designer end of the shopping spectrum, from Riviera Club's textured embroidery and Marc Jacob's cleverly hidden hearts to Hamilton 1883's double-sided poplin. If these are out of your price range, don't worry, we have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot more polka dots proliferating shops by mid-spring.


YMC, $145

Too Much?

If a full shirt of dots is a tad extreme,
consider a smaller accessory to sport your spots.
