Polka dots always have a cute pin up type vibe, but they’re mostly a summer frock kind of thing. In black and camel on this Dorothy Perkins number I think they really work for Autumn.
The dress looks about knee length on the super tall model, so a reasonable length for mere mortals. The shape has a touch of 40s about it with the little collar and semi full skirt. I might play up the vintage pin up with contrast seam stockings, red lips and victory rolls.
I love a dress that works just as well for day time as evening wear, and with it’s “sensible” colour scheme and demure neckline this would work just as well with black opaques in a nice normal office environment.
