Polka-dots are on trend with the hollywood elite – Jessica Alba has owned them, Sophie Ellis Bextor has worn them on the red carpet and more recently Amber Rose has paired them with a denim jacket for a more casual look.
So it is no surprise that Reese Witherspoon was pictured over summer in a short, flowing white and black polka-dot dress. She looks pretty good here. The dress is a little ‘tenty’ but probably comfortable in the warm weather. Reese has made the look very casual with the beige thongs (flip flops). Would be easy to make it smart casual by wearing a low black heel or sandal.
When I first saw these photographs, I thought that Amber had it all wrong. But after looking through them a couple more times, I don’t think she’s completely blown it. I get that she wants to be different with the hat – why else would you wear a hat like that in public if you weren’t vying for attention or just generally a little cray cray (I have been so wanting to use that phrase for such a long time!). I really like the dress – just not the length. With the hem length just above her knees, it makes her legs look really short and stubby. Especially since she’s teamed it with flat canvas shoes. I totes (had to do it…makes me feel younger heh heh) understand wanting to wear comfortable, flat shoes. Aside from that, I love the dress – the style is really flattering and it looks so cute with the little denim jacket. I would like to wear a non-maternity version of this dress and jacket.
And the winner for the best, most flattering, most fashionable maternity style is Jessica Alba! Jeez, she can do no wrong. I am in love with his – the polka-dot shirt dress over black leggings, black skirt, and some pretty amazing shoes. Although, how does she walk in shoes like these – your centre of gravity shifts when pregnant – usually means that it is more difficult to maintain balance doesn’t it?
