There is something timeless about the polka dot and that’s exactly why it’s a wardrobe classic – find your perfect piece and you can wear it year after year. To transition into the new season, layer a spotty summer dress or skirt with a tailored jacket or slim-fit knit and remember, this is one print you can play with – so mix and clash sizes of dots or colours for maximum effect. If in doubt, a dotty accessory gets my vote.

Mix it up

For a dynamite duo, wear fine stripes under a dotty playsuit. Finish the look with a shot of red
