Spot TrendGoodbye stripes for spring, hello spots for autumn! Or dots, polka dots, blotches, splodges or splatters. Call them what you will, just be aware this trend is going to creep up on us in a big way come the autumn – haven’t you had enough of stripy tops already, I know I have! So spots it is, and all you need to know is that there are few rules here – big, small, misshapen, uneven, the less uniform the better. And don’t just limit yourself to one spotted item, experiment with two or three, why not. Just make sure they’d tied together colourwise to avoid looking too Mad Hatter bonkers. Oversized monochrome spots give a good sixties vibe (another big autumn trend), small polka dots give refined nattiness. This is fun playful fashion, so get cracking with your spots now and you’ll be a dab hand come the autumn.
