Guess again - these statement spots are coming back for another go on the fashion mill, and they could just be your ticket to glam for your upcoming prom this year.
For one, Kristin Davis looked stunning in polka at the Costume Designers Guild Awards. Davis showed up to the red carpet in a trailing multi-layered white gown with sheer black polka dots and an elegant cinched waist accented by a black satin ribbon.
Perhaps the reason why she looked so glam (and not outdated) was the ultra-modern twist on the layered ball-gown look. Rather than being swathed in layers of overwhelming tulle, Davis looked svelte in soft voluminous layers of a sheer fabric that seemed light as air. The textured polka dots were merely the perfect match.
Being the belle of the ball won't be hard in a polka dot dress, which provides the perfect combination of femininity and fun. Look for unusual ways to wear this look, such as asymmetrical silhouettes and interesting fabrics.
