Perk up your dull winter wardrobe with polka dots. A childhood favorite for some- many remember Minnie Mouse sporting the print- this black and white print has evolved into a chic sophisticated pattern. Perfect for work or formal occasions, polka dots have been worn by Reese Witherspoon, Keira Knightly and Dutchess Kate. Ms. Reese was just recently spotted wearing a black Michael Kors cocktail dress with white pearl embroidery at the Palm Springs Film Festival. This dress is just one example of the many ways polka dots can elevate an other wisely boring, conservative outfit.
