Nothing’s More Classic Than Polka Dots & Pussy Bows

 

Polka Dots & Pussy Bows

Marc Jacob’s once said he doesn’t thing think there is ever a wrong time for a polka dot. I couldn’t agree more. There’s something very special about the classic and feminine print. And on this dress, they are perfection. The on trend polka dots and pussy bow give this pretty frock a certain je ne sais quoi that made me fall in love.

Polka dots are EVERYWHERE and aren’t going away anytime soon. And as designers continue to revisit the past for inspiration it makes complete sense that the classic polka dot has made a helluva comeback.

But is was Reuben Reuel, the amazing creative director and designer behind the Demestiks, did it first. I often look to Demestiks and Rueben’s amazing ability to forecast what trends are coming years before they arrive and become mainstream. His sense of style in unmatched, and I love the way he combines African print and textiles with modern cuts. His aesthetic is as unique as he is. I’ve previously written about the brand here on the blog is Demestik-cated and Outfit Obsession.

I first wore this dress to a formal event during Full Figured Fashion Week in June 2016. Reuben personally delivered it to my hotel room late one night. It was a must-have, not just because it’s beautiful, its named for Michelle Obama, our  always fashionable former First Lady.

Like Mrs. Obama, this frock is gorgeous, classy, elegant and smart! Yes, smart, in the lfabric selection, the on-trend yet classic print, the pussy bow neck tie and the pockets. I said Yes To The Dress once I confirmed it featured pockets. The light-weight fabric makes it wearable all year long.  Trust me, I’ve tried it. Wore it in the dead heat of summer and again in the winter with layers. Each time this beauty performed to perfection.  Simply put, this dress is perfection personified!

A Brief History of Polka Dots In Fashion

Polka dots as a fashion trend has been around since the 1920s. My homegirl Minnie Mouse (I’m from Orlando) was the first to be stylized in the feminine dots. However, the print would not officially become a fashion staple until the release of Christian Dior featured hourglass dresses bedecked with dots.

Simply put, this dress is perfection personified!
