It’s been way too long since I’ve had fun with Polyvore. And since fashionistas never seem to take a break – they’re always pushing everybody into the next season long before they’re ready, I figured I’d bring bizchickblogs style into this century by talking about the Fall 2011 Fashion Trends.

A quick scan of Google shows that fashion bloggers have been talking about Fall 2011 Fashion since… March. Who knew?


Fall 2011 Fashion Trend: Polka Dots

Guess what, ladies? Polka dots are back. As if they ever went away, right? Polka dots are probably my very favorite thing to look. I don’t have much polka dotted clothing and honestly can’t even remember the last polka dotted thing I ever bought. But it’s something to look for this fall and now that it’s an official “trend” I suppose I now have an excuse to hunt for polka dotted things.

1. Polka Dotted Shoes

You do NOT have to clothe yourself head-to-toe in polka dots to be in style this upcoming fall season. You can sprinkle in some polka dots to catch the trend without going totally overboard.

How about some polka dotted shoes? Mmm, yes, please.

2. Polka Dotted Handbags

Who doesn’t love polka dotted bags? These are super cute.

3. Polka Dotted Dresses

Here’s the funny thing about polka dots. They manage to make a dress look chic without being too busy. I actually find polka dots kind of calming to look at.

@bodynsoil I agree! I love the polka dotted shoes and handbags above. Especially those pale pink shoes. I just have to have them! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Mywritingworld Thanks, Fran. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you got a trip down memory lane! All of the teenagers will be thinking that polka dots are “their” trend and won’t realize that it’s been here before… a lot. ๐Ÿ™‚

@Red Kathy Absolutely fashion repeats. Sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bad, but I love polka dots!

Okay, I have a super fun polka dotted dress that I need to break out of storage and alter to match current length trends. I like polka dots, I think they are fun to wear and can really jazz up an otherwise blah outfit..

Hi Tia

Breaking news in the fashion and latest department. I must keep an eye and buy something with polka dots, to be in fashion. My hair is grey but my actions are still brilliant and to the point.

How did this sound? I felt like this after reading this blog post by you Tia. Because this post is an inspiration for all females. You made me go in the memory lane when there was craze about polka dot and it is back again.

Thanks for the latest fashion news.

Enjoy your Sunday.

I’m happy to see the polka dots coming back. . When I was in high school-back in ancient times- polka dots were a returning fad for a while. Fashion history does repeat itself. Time to break out those clothes that I’ve been storing away!
