No need to adjust your computer screen…but you’ll be seeing quite a lot of spots this fall.

Polka dots seem to be everywhere on the runways and even multiple times in one outfit (à la Marc Jacobs).

Today I dined at Brooklyn’s favorite Eastern European comfort food spot, Karloff…while stepping out of my comfort zone a bit. I bravely tried out this perennial, yet newly fresh trend of polka dots by mixing my own dots with pieces from the back of my closet. Voila! A cheap way to transition into fall.

Stylist Tip: TRY THIS TREND. Just make sure your dots vary in sizes. You don’t want to look like you’re wearing a clown costume. If you are so bold to try this trend, let me know how it works for you!
